Frequently Asked Questions

Below we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that we receive from our customers. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your queries.

How much does it cost to install a fire alarm system?

There’s no single answer to this question because of the number of variables involved. 

The cost will fluctuate depending on the size of the building in question, its purpose and risk-level, and the grade of fire alarm system.

Also taken into consideration are the individual components needed to facilitate an effective evacuation strategy based on the property’s layout. 

Whether the system needs to be wired or is a wireless battery setup, is also a factor along with the construction time. 

To scope out these variables, and figure out which system you’ll need, your place of work will need to undergo a Fire Risk Assessment carried out by someone with the appropriate training to make judgements about fire prevention strategies.

As a result, the overall cost depends on the nature of your business space, ranging from a four-figure sum through to six.

Some places that offer installation may not have prices listed.

In those cases, you’ll need to ask the alarm system provider directly what you can expect to pay.

Can an electrician install a fire alarm system?

In the UK, regulations dictate who can install a fire alarm system, stating work must be completed by a competent person that has the relevant training, experience and capability. 

This means a single electrician, or a team of them, can fit a fire alarm providing they have the appropriate level of skill.

The best way to guarantee the quality of a commissioned fire alarm installer is to check they possess third-party certification confirming they have the relevant knowledge and expertise.

That includes an understanding of different fire alarm system types and how they work.

They’ll also need to be familiar with the manufacturers, models and grades so they can identify which best suits your individual business needs.

On the theory side, they should also be familiar with the main corresponding legislation – British Standard BS 5839 – and any other related regulations if the work is undertaken in devolved parts of the UK such as Scotland or Wales. 

If wiring is required, more likely with newer installations, they also need to comply with British Standard BS 7671.

Do fire alarms need to be hard-wired?

In every new property built since 1992, building regulations insist at least one smoke detector is wired into the mains. 

Hard-wired alarms used to be more expensive to maintain because the average homeowner didn’t possess the knowhow to replace them when required.

That means a regular call out for electricians, but now products are more straightforward to look after.
