Fire Alarm Systems For Schools, 3 Things To Consider

  • How Large Is Your School Environment? One of the first things you need to consider when searching for a fire alarm for your school is how large the school environment is. Depending on how large the location is, you may need a more detailed alert.For example, you might be well served by a conventional fire alarm. These fire alarms provide a cost effective fire detection solution, however the downside is that they only alert responders to a specific zone and the individual will need to manually find the specific device.

If your school environment covers a very large area, you might find your school better served by a more sophisticated style of fire alarm. This style of alarm is known as an analogue-addressable alarm, it's ideal for buildings with more complex areas;whilst they can be more expensive than conventional style alarms they do have an advantage that each detector has its own unique address making it much easier to identify where the alert is coming from, instead of just being pointed to a general area of the school.

  • Don't Forget About Passive Protection. Whilst fire alarms are great tools to alert you to afire, however it is also important to install passive fire protections that delay the spread of smoke. However, in order for fire protection services to work, fire doors need to remain closed, after all a fire door isn't going to provide a barrier for the smoke if it's left wide open.

Whilst every form of wall and door has passive fire protection to a certain extent, you can find walls and doors on the market that are specifically designed to help delay the spread of the harmful products produced during combustion. These fire rated walls and doors are usually categorised as 30, 60, or 90 minute walls/doors will provide a higher degree of protection than normal walls and doors.

  • Wired Or Wireless? Sometimes installing a wired fire alarm system can be difficult or even prohibited. In these situations, the ideal fire detection system is a wireless system, such as an EMS Radio Fire System.

Wireless systems are ideal for areas in which wiring is prohibited. Additionally, whilst they are more costly to purchase than other more conventional fire alarm systems, wireless fire alarms are arguably the most convenient and significantly cheaper to install due to their lack of wiring.

If you're concerned about the effectiveness of the wireless signals in a wireless fire alarm, it's important to note that current wireless technology has made such systems highly accurate with reliable signals that can't be blocked, providing you with a convenient fire detection system and peace of mind.
