Having an effective fire safety process in place is crucial to any commercial or industrial building and a key part of that process is having the necessary equipment to tackle fires. While the general advice for a fire situation is not to tackle the blaze, there are circumstances when you need to, in order to escape from the building.
At Automatic Alarms Ltd, we supply and install fire extinguishers and fire extinguisher systems in buildings throughout Greater Manchester and the wider North West region. Our experienced fire safety technicians bring decades of expertise to every job, ensuring the safety of your on-site staff and customers.
As one of the North West’s leading providers of fire extinguishers, we have much to offer our clients in and around Greater Manchester. This is what you can expect from us…
To know what your property needs in terms of fire extinguishers and other fire safety equipment, we need to know the fire safety procedures you currently have in place and whether they are fit for purpose. We perform a full fire safety assessment of your premises, determine the right equipment to meet your particular needs. For more details on what this entails, visit our Fire Risk Assessment page, elsewhere on this site.
There is more to fire extinguishers than the traditional lift-and-point cannisters. We can provide and install a range of fixed fire extinguishing systems for larger properties, ensuring full coverage of the entire building. These include dry risers and hose reels for more efficient access by the fire service, as well as gaseous extinguishing systems to protect areas such as kitchens, CCTV control rooms, and computer server rooms.
We provide fire extinguishers from some of the industry’s top manufacturers. All our fire safety equipment is fully-tested both before and after installation, to ensure it works correctly. We provide you with a full installation record and instructions on how to operate the equipment.
A fire extinguisher system – whether fixed or portable – is only as effective as the person operating it. Our experienced fire safety experts are qualified to deliver in-house training to certain members of your team. This covers how to use portable fire extinguishers safely and accurately and how to assist colleagues during an evacuation. This allows these members of staff to act as fire wardens for the building.
All fire safety equipment must be regularly checked to ensure it is in full working order in the event of a fire. We provide a regular service for our Greater Manchester clients where we test the fire extinguisher and other systems as often as recommended by the manufacturers (usually every 6-12 months). Should any equipment not be working at peak performance, we will see that it is replaced.
Fire extinguishers in the workplace are normally only operated by members of staff who have received the appropriate training. For the rest of your employees and visitors, we provide essential fire safety signage, letting them know what to do in the event of an emergency. As part of our risk assessment, we will help put together a safe and effective evacuation route that we will signpost appropriately around the building for the benefit of all occupants.
