A large number of businesses find it extremely difficult to recover from a fire, which is why fire prevention should be paramount to every business owner. Britannia can aid with the prevention of significant fires from occurring within your business through the installation of commercial fire alarm systems.

When you have decided the most suitable fire alarm system for your commercial premises, it is crucial your system is installed and commissioned by a company which is accredited.

Once your commercial fire alarm system is installed, a Britannia Fire and Security engineer will commission your system. Upon commissioning, you will be issued with a BAFE Certificate of Conformity. This is a notice to prove your commercial fire alarm system complies with the latest legislation.


Our expert engineer will guide you through the process of how to use the system and fire alarm panel, along with showing you how to perform the weekly test required.

The Fire Alarm Installation Process

Brief & Site Survey

Once you express your inquiry, we are committed to comprehensively addressing all your needs. Our dedicated team will meticulously craft a detailed brief outlining your requirements. To ensure precise pricing and the development of a comprehensive design solution, we find it essential to conduct an on-site survey. By personally attending your location, we can thoroughly assess the specific context, understand the intricacies of your requirements, and tailor our services to align with your vision perfectly. This hands-on approach enhances the accuracy of our pricing and allows us to create a design that fully encompasses your unique preferences and spatial considerations. We prioritise the importance of delivering a solution that meets and exceeds your expectations.


The Fire Alarm Design

From the site survey and the fire risk assessment we’ll determine which category of alarm you require.


  • L1 – Full Fire Detection in all areas of the building
  • L2 – Escape routes, rooms off of escape routes & areas of high risk
  • L3 – Fire detection with escape routes and rooms leading to escape routes
  • L4 – Fire detection in escape routes only
  • L5 – Bespoke design for complex buildings


We’ll also identify if you either need a wired system or a wireless one. Once we’ve collated all of this, we can get started on your fire alarm design (internal link here)

Fire Alarm Installation

Now, with the initial steps complete, we are ready to embark on the process of installing fire alarms in your premises. Upon reaching a consensus on the design, our next step involves the procurement of the required materials and components. Following this, we will schedule a convenient date for our highly skilled engineers to undertake the installation of the fire alarm system at your site.


A dedicated project manager will be assigned to your project to streamline and oversee the entire installation journey. This seasoned professional will play a pivotal role in ensuring that every aspect of the installation process unfolds seamlessly. From coordinating with the installation team to addressing any unforeseen challenges, the project manager will be your point of contact, assuring that the installation is executed with precision and efficiency.


Rest assured, our commitment to a smooth and successful installation extends beyond just the technical aspects; we prioritise open communication and collaboration throughout the process to guarantee that your experience with our services is both satisfactory and stress-free.

Your Alarm Will Be Checked & Signed Off

After successfully installing the fire alarm system, our commitment to your safety extends to conducting a rigorous fire risk assessment. This assessment serves as a proactive measure to verify the effectiveness of the newly implemented system and to identify and address any potential vulnerabilities within the property.


Understanding that knowledge is key to effective emergency response, we go beyond the installation process by offering tailored training sessions. These sessions are designed to equip relevant personnel in your business with the necessary skills to conduct regular system tests and familiarize themselves with the intricacies of the installed system. By providing this training, our goal is to instill confidence in your team, ensuring they are well-prepared to respond promptly and effectively to any unforeseen emergencies.


Our approach emphasizes the initial setup and the enduring safety and preparedness of your property and its occupants. It reflects our dedication to exceeding industry standards and providing a comprehensive solution prioritising ongoing security.


Maintenance & Support

Once we have completed your installation, we’ll set up a new date for any commercial fire alarm maintenance checks which our required in the future to ensure the system is up to scratch.


In addition to these scheduled maintenance checks, our customer support team remains readily available to address any inquiries or concerns you may have regarding the system. We believe in fostering a partnership that goes beyond the initial installation, providing ongoing support to uphold the integrity of your fire safety infrastructure. Our goal is to not only meet your expectations but to exceed them by delivering a comprehensive and reliable fire alarm solution for the long term.
