Fire Alarm & Detection systems come in many different shapes and sizes, there are many different manufacturers operating in the industry and each manufacturer has many different versions of their system they produce. When designing a brand new Fire Alarm system it's important that many different factors are considered to ensure all requirements are met. Firstly there are many different types of system that can be described as Fire Alarm & Detection systems aside from the general wired Fire Alarm panel and devices, systems such as Wireless Fire Alarm systems, Aspirating Fire Alarm systems, Gas Suppression systems, all fall under this description.
It's important that the right type of system is selected based on the type of premises it's being installed into, the use of those premises, any building environment concerns (such as areas that would consistent high dust levels such as a factory), and it's ability to interface with other systems in the building. Regardless of what system is needed PFS Group have decades of experienced designing, installing, commissioning and maintaining a vast multitude of different Fire Alarm & Detection systems.
