    Conventional Fire Alarms in Preston

    Conventional fire alarms in Preston normally are much cheaper than other kinds of fire alarms, but the downside to these type of signals is that they require a lot of wiring, which requires more time to install the fire alarm system.

    This kind of system won’t notify the user of the precise location of a fire, but if it is wired up correctly, it can be divided into zones, meaning that it can still work out to be a cheaper solution for buildings with multiple floors. We wouldn’t recommend these fire alarm systems for big and complex buildings. Call us on 0345 260 0093, or fill out our simple contact form.

    Addressable Fire Alarm Systems Preston

    Addressable are a little different to conventional fire alarms in Preston. Each is connected to a system on its unique address. This can detect where the fire is located and tell you on the control panel exactly which has been activated and where. This is good as it means you can find the fire fast and have a chance to put the fire out before it spreads.

    Addressable systems cost more than conventional systems, but they are a lot easier to install because it’s all wired into one loop, rather than it being split up into lots of individual cables. These types of fire alarms have the potential to save you a lot of money over time. Contact us today.

    Fire Alarms in Preston – Frequently Asked Questions

    What is BS-5839?

    BS-5839 is an intermediate standard for fire alarm, with stricter requirements and more rigorous test methods than BS 5838, the United Kingdom’s standard for the fire detection and fire alarm loop circuit. At Argus, we operate under these regulations.

    Why should my service provider be BAFE approved?

    There are a few reasons why you should look for a service provider that is BAFE approved. Firstly, BAFE approval is a sign that the service provider has been rigorously tested and meets the highest safety standards. This gives you peace of mind that your fire alarm system will be installed and maintained to the highest possible standard. Additionally, BAFE approved service providers are typically more experienced and therefore better equipped to deal with any issues that may arise with your fire alarm system. There’s no need to worry about this with Argus Fire & Security, we are fully approved.

    Testimonials - What Our Clients Say

    “Great service from Argus. On the initial assessment they identified that a burglar could break down our door and enter most of the office without activating the alarm. Argus installed a completely new system for much less than I was expecting, and with their remote monitoring that’s linked to a key holder we have total piece of mind.”

    Mr Nigel Finch

    HR Department - Wigan

    “I purchased a Burglar Alarm from Argus in 2014 for my home. Stephen dealt with this transaction and was very helpful, the system was fitted by Damion to an excellent standard and I am very happy overall with the finish.”

    Mr C Hill

    “After a recent break at my home I contacted Argus Fire and Security to provide a quotation for CCTV. I was very impressed with the rapid response and detailed quotation, the system purchased is of high quality and I particularly like the remote viewing capability from my mobile devices.

    Thank you Argus for a job well done, please pass on my appreciation to your staff for their diligence and professionalism.”
