PD PD1 A system installed throughout the dwelling incorporating detectors in all areas in which fire might start other than toilets, bath and shower rooms.

Fire alarm systems installed by us use protocols (electronic language) that are open and available to all. Open protocol systems allow the end user to change from one Service Company to another with ease. As all fire alarm systems are required by law to be regularly serviced and maintained, the ability to change your service company is important to ensure competitive prices for maintenance and service contracts. Closed protocol systems do not allow this and in many cases tie the end user into service plans (which escalate in cost) which they might otherwise want to change.
If you already have a fire alarm system we are happy to assume maintenance of the same subject to inspection.
