23 Jun Smoke Alarms for Commercial Properties
Whether you are the owner of commercial property or you are currently leasing commercial property, the importance of adequate fire safety systems cannot be overstated.
Commercial buildings are required by law to have adequate safety mechanisms in place to detect, alert and notify occupants to take action in the event of a fire, and smoke alarms are one of the essential safety features commercial properties should have.
Depending on the type of commercial property in question, smoke alarms must be installed either in every room of the property, or on every storey of the property.
For example, from the 1st October 2015, landlords have been required by law to have fitted smoke detectors and alarms on each storey of a rental property. For office blocks and other types of commercial property with occupants, a smoke detector in every room is the requirement, and ideally, the smoke detectors should take into account the architectural design of the property to ensure that they are as effective as possible.
Important considerations should also be made with regards to the installation, commissioning, and maintenance of smoke alarms. If no fire safety systems are currently in place within a commercial property, a fire risk assessment should be carried out to identify the level of protection required under BS 5839-1:2013 (L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, M, P1, or P2).
