Fire and Safety
Ensuring safety in the case of a fire or other hazardous situation is paramount – whether you’re a small business or a large industrial operation. Simat Electrical Contractors provide commercial and industrial fire and safety solutions throughout Manchester, Bolton and the wider North West.
What’s more, at Simat, we don’t just blindly install systems that we think are suitable, we have an in depth knowledge of the relevant health and safety legislation that relates to your kind of business. This means that with the team here at Simat, you’re not just working with electricians – instead, you’re working with a team that understands exactly what’s needed to keep you safe and in line with the law.
What’s required by law?
UK law requires businesses to have appropriate fire detection systems in place. While there are some exceptions for very small businesses – virtually all commercial and industrial premises require an electrical fire alarm system that at least warns business occupants in case of fire or smoke.
Since the word ‘appropriate’ is open to interpretation, it’s important that you consult electrical contractors that are experienced in the supply and installation of systems over a range of business and premises types.
Working With Simat
At Simat, we’ve worked with a huge number of clients to find a system that suits both their needs and their budget. Be aware, there’s no one system that’s going to suit every business – and in fact, even a business similar to your own may have entirely different needs to bring them in line with the law, professional accreditations or insurance compliance.
As such, we’d begin by understanding your specific business – what you do and the level of protection that’s appropriate. We’d consult with you every step of the way – and ultimately, work around you and your organisation when installing.
