Fire Alarms

DO I NEED A FIRE ALARM?

CHECK WHAT YOUR FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT SAYS!

A fire alarm can be used to serve as early warning in the event of a fire and offers protection to a building and its occupants allowing them to safely vacate the building if the worst happens an d a fire breaks out. Your Choice Fire and Security is a BAFE approved Fire Alarm Installer and Maintainer   and our experts can work with you to ensure that your system fully satisfies the rerquirements of your Fire Risk Assessment. 

OPEN AND CLOSED PROTOCOLS – WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

Open protocol systems mean customers can choose from different suppliers. Repairs and upgrades can be completed by the vast majority of engineers which means customers are free to shop around and pick a supplier of their choice to work on and maintain their system.

Closed protocol systems mean customers can only install components from the company who provided the original system. Furthermore they can only use engineers employed by that company when it comes to repairing or upgrading systems.

By removing any form of competition it means customers can often be left to pick up large bills for parts, repairs and service. Similarily with closed systems, upgrades are made purely at the discretion of the manufacture which is far from ideal for the customer.

Your Choice Fire and Security believes in conducting business in an ethical way, retaining customers based on good customer service and as such we pride ourselves on installing Open Protocol Systems.
