Did you know that every week, 20 schools in the UK are destroyed or damaged by fire*? Old wiring, worn-out appliances and even arson attacks can place the six million people who work in our schools, colleges, universities and emergency services at risk from fire. Protecting workers, the people they care for, and the buildings they occupy calls for highly effective fire alarm systems with the capacity to span sometimes complex networks of buildings.
