Different fire alarm systems are each suited to different building types and applications and as such, a Fire Alarm System can vary dramatically in both price and complexity. From a simple single panel type with a detector and sounder in a small / medium commercial property to the larger addressable type Fire Alarm System in a multi-occupancy building. Look at the diagram below and you will see these systems have to protect both buildings and occupants alike.
This following guide details classifications for commercial systems, but we also have information on domestic fire alarm systems available on request.
