It is important to remember that there are regulations for commercial and residential buildings, but these also apply to rented or tenanted accommodation. Where this is the case, the responsibility falls upon the building landlord.
Landlords are required to provide a smoke alarm on every floor of a property with a carbon detection system in every room with a fuel-burning appliance.
In the past, we have worked with Housing Associations to perform Fire Safety surveys into their systems to ensure compliance with regulations.
Why Fire Protection in Housing?
Within a housing association property, having fire suppression and fire protection is a legal requirement to ensure anyone’s safety using the building.
Intended to maximise both staff and residences’ safety, the systems we install can encompass passive systems using the building’s design to reduce the fire’s spread, ensuring staff and residents may safely leave the premises.
Alongside being a requirement to include fire safety solutions, it is also vital to ensure they are serviced and maintained regularly to comply with leading industry regulations. With the fire and smoke industry under enormous pressure to introduce further stricter regulations, we have signed long-term contracts with the majority of our clients.
This enables peace of mind for our clients; their systems are competent in the event of a fire, ensuring safety while remaining compliant with evolving laws and regulations.
