Where a fire alarm system is required both hardwired and wireless systems are fully compliant so the decision rests with the property owner, responsible person and/or installer. Many considerations should be taken into account when deciding which type of system is most suitable and we are often asked to help outline the pros and cons of each option.
We have compiled this guide which identifies the key decision factors and provides our assessment of how wired vs wireless systems stack up against each other for each.
We are pleased to confirm that all of our sales and support team have successfully completed training on the new Ekho wireless system from Hochiki. A special thanks to Hochiki who were able to deliver this training during these challenging times.
Anyone who has dealt with a wireless ﬁre alarm system will almost certainly be familiar with the ‘chicken and egg’ like situation when it comes to site surveys. Site surveys are the vital process of testing the signal strength at the property which is being protected to evaluate how many transponders and/or expanders will be required to provide adequate signal strength. Without undertaking a survey an accurate quote for equipment cannot be done and without this quote a decision whether to use the system or not cannot be made.
