Mace fire alarm monitoring is provided through our secure monitoring centre. Our monitored alarms ensure rapid response to any alarm activation 24 hours a day, 356 days a year. On activation, the alarm monitor service will immediately summon the emergency services, contacting all key-holders, plus security personnel.
Many of our clients enjoy the reassurance and added protection of Mace fire alarm monitoring – especially as 67% of all major fires occur at times when buildings are closed or unoccupied, after 6pm. By reducing the time it takes for the fire service to arrive, monitoring can help lessen damage to property and improve business continuity. This is especially important if your premises are at risk from arson.
In Autumn 2008, the British Standard relating to fire alarm installation and maintenance was revised. BS5839 now recommends that fire detection and alarms should be linked to fire alarm monitoring centres. This sends a clear message about the importance of protecting your property with a monitoring service.
Mace offer the same standard of care and maintenance for our monitored alarms as we do with all our installations. We support our fire alarm systems with the highest standard of routine maintenance – regardless of the system type or the manufacturer. We make sure your fire alarm is fully functioning, helping to keep you safe at all times.
If your fire alarm is not monitored, vital minutes can be lost before the ringing bell is noticed, if at all. To find out how we can help you protect your premises against fire, please contact us.
