Upgrading your fire systems

    When your systems get old, they begin to slow down, becoming unreliable and problematic. Upgrading fire systems is an absolute necessity to ensure the safety of your premises, whether you are a business owner, a homeowner, or the manager of an educational facility. 

    This is why keeping on top of your fire technology’s maintenance, and upgrading it when necessary, is so important to keep it functioning at its best, ensuring you and your staff, students, or family are protected. 

    Upgrading your fire systems

    A simple upgrade of your fire system means replacing your old, slow technology with newer, faster, more reliable versions. When deciding whether to replace, upgrade or reuse the fire alarm system, several things should be considered. The age of the existing system is one of the most important factors.

    Most fire alarm systems are manufactured to have a life span of 10 to 15 years and BS5839 recommends that electronics are replaced in line with the manufacturers recommendations which is usually 10 years. The older your fire alarm system the fewer engineers will be able to service the system and the more expense replacement parts become.

    Smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years because sensitivity will deteriorate and either cause false alarms or fail to detect smoke. It’s been well documented that regular upgrades actually reduce costs in the long run, because fewer maintenance and repair visits are required.
