Business Fire Alarm Systems

Do you have a fire alarm system in your business? If not, it is important that you know the employer is responsible for the safety of their employees when it comes to fire. It is very important each business has a suitable fire alarm system in place to ensure all possible safety precautions are taken. 

Under the UK fire alarm regulations, it is stated that all business premises must have an appropriate fire detection system. However, in premises which are small enough for everyone to see a fire instantly, it may not be necessary. Be sure to take make a fire risk assessment prior to deciding whether or not you should have a fire alarm.

After your fire risk assessment, if you think your business does need a fire alarm system - here's a look at just a few which may be suitable for your business. 

  • Conventional Fire Alarms

Conventional business fire alarms will identify the zone the fire is in by dividing your premises into different areas. This type of fire alarm system is best for smaller businesses that are at a low risk of fire hazards. 

  • Wireless Fire Alarms

This type of wireless fire alarm works using a link between the fire alarm panel and the sensors. This works best for businesses which do not want a lot of wires/cables hanging around. 

  • Addressable Fire Alarms

Addressable Fire Alarms are best suited to larger workplaces which may be at a higher risk of fire. If one of the panels installed with an addressable fire alarm system activates, you will be able to see exactly where the fire is. 

Here at IDS Security, we install all three different types of business Fire Alarm Systems - and have done so for over 20 years! We are experts in this field, so if you would like to find out more, contact us here

stable

Stables are usually one of the most targetted areas when it comes to rural crime. This is because stables may not only contain valuable horses, they can also contain expensive equipment. Only a couple of months ago, a stable was raided by thieves who stole £10k worth of horse riding gear in Scotland. Unfortunately, the victims did not have CCTV so they were unable to identify those who stole their property. 

Understandably, many horse owners would like to keep horses safe and their equipment in the stable so it is easily accessible. If this is something that would make your life easier, we believe CCTV for stables could improve this situation for you. 

Why You Should Have CCTV For Stables 

As of August 2017, there seems to be a sharp rise in rural crime as thieves have become more "brazen". With an increase in reports of suspicious people watching farms and a long wait time for the police, it is important to ensure you have the right security in place to protect your farm. 

Livestock is one of the most targeted subjects of robbery, so stables are sure to entice any would-be criminals. Always make sure your horses are microchipped and easily trackable for this very reason. However, the equipment that can be stored along with livestock in stables is not so easily tracked. 

If you have CCTV for stables, this can help you identify the burglars and retrieve your missing items. Here are a few more reasons to consider farm CCTV:

  • The look of CCTV will help deter any criminals 
  • You will be able to identify the criminals 
  • Livestock CCTV will keep an eye on your animals
  • It will provide a record of what was taken 
  • Recordings will help police investigation

Where to Buy CCTV for Stables
