Security Alarms

Wired and Wireless Security Alarms

The concept of wireless intruder alarms has been out for many years, however in previous years the technology and reliability of such systems as they say "left a lot to be desired".

Today’s new systems are a vast improvement and enable a virtually wireless alarm system (they still require a mains supply) to be installed by a single engineer.

The benefits are time saving, no ugly wiring, little disruption, easily extended or adapted as required. Disadvantages are few and really only amount to changing the alarm batteries every year or few years during a maintenance visit. New wireless alarm systems now only require battery changes every 2 years.

Systems now include a speech dialler that can be linked to your BT line and upon activation, triggering a voice message transmitted to you advising of the systems activation.

A wireless system can be installed for a short period to provide temporary cover and be easily removed and reinstalled elsewhere when required. All systems come with a certificate upon completion.

Access

Access Control and Door Entry Systems

Most organisations, not just those with security concerns, require that only authorised persons are granted access to their premises.

Traditional locks and keys offer security, but lost keys present a security risk, and changing locks and re-issuing keys when lost or stolen is inconvenient and costly.

Access control technology provides flexible control over access to your building and can benefit organisations of all sizes and is a low cost, easily maintained security solution to managing exit and entry at one or more entrances.

Readers can be fitted to internal and external doors both on entry and exit side and other entry and exit points such as gates and barriers both personnel and vehicle.

Access Control Systems come in a huge range of sizes and types, from a simple door intercom to a high security biometric (fingerprint or iris scanner) system that controls access throughout a building and tracks all movements.

Benefits of Access Control Systems

More and more businesses are using access control systems to give them greater control over their buildings and protect their assets from theft, nuisance and vandalism:

  • Monitor the main entrance with a Video Intercom, so only expected visitors can get access to reception
  • Remotely open distant doors, ideal for deliveries, large sites and for out of hours when few staff on site
  • Track and log staff and visitors movements for security and timekeeping
  • Securely access parts of a building without having to issue dozens of keys or use easily shared PIN codes

Emergency Lighting

What is Emergency Lighting?

Emergency lights are self-contained units that are wired into the mains, but have the benefit of battery backup which enables them to remain illuminated should the mains power fail. The batteries can either be carried within the body of the individual light or accessed by lights via an independent wired circuit. The batteries are kept charged via the mains.

Servicing of the emergency lighting systems should be carried out at six monthly intervals for self-contained luminaries in addition to a monthly flash test as stipulated in the British Standards BS 5266-1:2011. Active Fire & Security Systems can help with all these requirements, we will carry out the following

  • Contact Site Manager on arrival
  • Inspect and test the batteries and charger (for central battery systems)
  • Test the operation of each light and confirm that it works efficiently for at least one hour; cleaning as required
  • Every three years (unless otherwise stipulated by enforcing authority) test each lamp for full specified duration
  • Enter details of the service into site log book
  • Carry out inspection of all areas of premises, furnishings and equipment therein and highlight recommendations to maintain/improve efficiency of the system.
  • Leave with Site Manager after each service a test report as required under the British Standard Code of Practice. If faults have been noted, enter on certificate.

We offer flexible support options, which include periodical inspection and testing routines all in accordance with the recommendations of the current British Standards.

Risk Assesments

Active Fire & Security Systems provide a quality fire risk assessments for any type of business carried out by our professional risk assessors.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect in October 2006 and replaced over 70 pieces of fire safety law.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupations (HMOs). The law applies to you if you are:

  • Responsible for business premises
  • An employer or self-employed with business premises
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
  • A charity or voluntary organisation
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • Providing accommodation for paying guests
  • Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.

Under the new Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which became law on the 1st October 2006, it is now mandatory to undertake a written Fire Risk Assessment, and to maintain this as a 'living' document. i.e. it should be re-assessed at least annually, and updated in the event of any changes made to the premises which should be incorporated into the document.

The new Fire Safety Order encompasses and takes the place of all previous fire safety legislation and all aspects of Fire Safety are now together under this order and now non-compliance is dealt with under the authority of criminal law.

This piece of legislation requires the 'Responsible Person', to consider all aspects of Fire Safety within their premises.
