      Evacuation Alert Systems

      At Surrey Tech Services Ltd, we provide evacuation alert systems for buildings across London and the Home Counties – including Maidenhead, Guildford and Slough. As experienced fire safety and electrical contractors, you can count on our expertise when it comes to the installation of your high-rise evacuation alert system.

      What Is An Evacuation Alert System?

      Operated manually via a control panel inside a block of flats, an evacuation alert system is a way for the fire and rescue services to alert the entire building of an emergency. With a sounder positioned inside every flat within the high-rise, this acts as a quick way of alerting everyone in the building so that fire and rescue services can focus on saving lives and tackling the fire.

      A visual alarm device per flat is also required as part of building evacuation systems for those who have impaired hearing.

      What Is BS 8629:2019?

      BS 8629 is the British Standard introduced in 2019 as a new requirement for high-rise residential buildings. It covers the ‘design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of evacuation alert systems’. This came following the tragic events of Grenfell, when existing procedures for the evacuation of large blocks of flats came under scrutiny.

      Evacuation Alert System Installation

      To ensure your evacuation alarm system is fully functional, our dedicated team provides professional installation, taking care of all wiring and circuitry. We position the panel and the sounders, before testing the evacuation alarm sound so that you can be sure the system will work should fire and rescue services require it.
