Fire Alarm Systems
WLS Fire Security Equipment Installation & Maintenance
WLS can install, program & maintain all your fire security equipment, including installation of wireless fire alarm systems, VESDA systems, Automatic Opening Vents, intercom & voice alarm systems. We can integrate them together with a central fire control panel or in combination within environments such as Nurse Call systems. We are BAFE & NSI Gold approved & offer an exclusive Redcare connection.
We integrate your fire installation with other security, electrical and mechanical services on a cause and effect basis through the Building Management System (BMS) to maximise the safety of your site.
Wireless Fire Alarm Systems
Where cables present a problem, wireless fire alarm systems can be deployed. Our new range of wireless detectors and control panels ensure coverage can still be maintained whilst complying with all relevant standards.
VESDA stands for Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus. These aspirating smoke detection systems are used where early warning to a fire is fundamental. If servicing of a conventional system is problematic or aesthetics are a major consideration such as in luxury flats and houses or listed buildings, a VESDA system can be an ideal solution.
Automatic Opening Vents release smoke from residential corridors particularly in “Stay in place” scenarios. AOV systems can be integrated with a fire control panel for enhanced fire prevention.
Voice alarm systems are often installed in place of conventional sounders particularly where phased evacuation is a requirement.
DDA fire alarm systems are frequently combined with intercom systems to assist in the evacuation of disabled individuals in the event of a fire. These are often included as part of a nurse call system in assisted living environments, where a panic alarm can be used to allow patients to alert nursing staff for assistance in an emergency.
Fire Brigade Response With Redcare Connection
In the event of a fire, our Redcare connection service can be used in combination with our central monitoring station to ensure the fire brigade attend. 68% of fires occur in unoccupied buildings. We can arrange key-holding for your property to minimise fire risk.
WLS was brought into the project by electrical contractor, Cilantro, to install fire detection and alarm systems in the communal areas.
WLS carried out a full survey of all entrance/exit points, stairways, fire doors and emergency exits to establish where the building is vulnerable to intruders, using this insight to inform the access control and CCTV upgrade. The upgrade made use of existing access control and CCTV hardware, with some additions where required, and all server systems were upgraded to allow for future integration with other Channel 4 sites.
