Fire presents a significant risk to a business as it burns indiscriminately through the premises, any stock held on site, and can even harm people. In the UK, the average cost of a fire incident to a business is £657,074.
While the risk of fire cannot be eliminated entirely, it can be mitigated with an effective fire detection system in place.
No matter what industry you operate in, our fire detection solutions can protect you against the physical and financial costs of an incident.
Restaurant kitchens are hot environments with naked flames. The most common cause of fire comes from grease, either building up in exhaust systems or spilling onto hobs.
While it may seem unlikely, offices are hotbeds for potential electrical fires. With so many electrical devices plugged in, a poorly built electrical network may not be able to cope and can short circuit.
An assortment of factories up and down the country work with flammable material, producing goods or processing materials. Factory settings have the potential for all kinds of fires, typically stemming from old and faulty machinery.
Don’t limit yourself; protect yourself against more than fire. Explore our range of security options to create your own,
bespoke integrated security and business solution.
All businesses have different risks associated with their buildings, employees, processes and products. Every business risk needs to be identified and effectively managed through fire risk assessment and analysis, which then must be managed through strategic processes and systems. To comply with regulations and to effectively manage the risk to your business continuity, staff and visitors, your fire detection system is designed to work in line with your life safety processes.
For example, a manufacturing company will often have large, noisy, production areas – making specialist detection, plant shutdown and visual alarm devices vital to ensure the early detection of fire and rapid evacuation of specific areas. The SECOM Fire Design Team are experts in the construction and specification of fire detection systems that will not only manage your risks but also reduce the impact on business continuity.
A compliant fire detection system is a legal necessity in the UK for businesses as stipulated by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Therefore, businesses can be found to be shirking their legal responsibilities if inspectors deem the fire detection and safety system to be unfit for purpose.
Installing a bespoke fire detection system designed by SECOM Fire can ensure that your business is protected, giving you peace of mind.
