British Standards BS 5839-1:2017. This is a code of practice for fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings. The code provides recommendations for the planning, design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings other than dwellings. It does not recommend whether or not. If you have a fire, smoke alarms can cut nearly in half your risk of dying in a fire. Smoke alarms sense abnormal amounts of smoke or invisible combustion gases in the air. They can detect both smoldering and flaming fires. In new homes: The National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72) requires hard-wired, interconnected smoke alarms with battery back-up.

Check the battery – electric alarms normally have a 9v back up battery in them in case you have a power cut. This should be changed every year and can make your alarm beep if it’s running out.

If you have changed this and the alarm is still beeping please contact a qualified electrician for advice and to check your electrical supply.

All commercial fire alarms are split into two main categories, L and P.

L type systems (Life)

The objective of a category L system is to provide early warning of a fire, taking into account the mobility of occupants, building layout and its use, to provide sufficient time for a safe evacuation.

L1 – Detection installed throughout the building.
Typically installed in: nursing homes and large multi-story buildings.

L2 – Detection on fire exit routes, rooms directly off fire routes and any high risk areas.
Typically installed in: hotels, HMO’s and multi-story buildings.

L3 – Detection on fire exit routes and rooms directly off fire routes.
Typically installed in: large convoluted buildings with a small number of fire exits.

L4 – Detection on fire exit routes.
Typically installed in: two-story small offices and commercial premises.

M Type – The use of manual call points.

P type systems (Property)

The objective of a category P is to provide the earliest warning of a fire to minimise the time taken from ignition of a fire to the attendance of keyholders and the fire services, minimising damage to the property.

P1 – Requires detection installed throughout the building.

P2 – Requires detection installed to areas highlighted in your assessment.
