All businesses must have a means of raising the alarm in the event of a fire. Fire /Smoke detection systems protect both life and property. They alert workers, staff residence and external services to unexpected and dangerous events and allow the appropriate action to be taken.
HS Security Services design, supply, install, commission and maintain a comprehensive range of conventional, analogue addressable and wire free radio fire alarm systems together with their accessories, including a variety of detectors, sounders, bells, call points and door retainers.
The correct selection of the most suitable system for your business and ongoing service/maintenance by qualified technicians is critical to ensure your premises are adequately protected at all times.
Whether you are a local authority, a multi-national corporation, high street retailer or a small local business you can be assured of the quality and reliability of the products and services we provide.

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO)
The Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 (FSO) came into force on 1 October 2006, and replaced over 70 separate pieces of fire safety legislation. It gives responsibility to those who are best placed to address fire safety and ensure that risks - which necessarily change over time - are kept under review.
Under the FSO a 'responsible person' (usually the owner, employer or occupier of business or industrial premises) must carry out a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment. Responsible persons under the Order are required, following a risk assessment, to implement appropriate fire safety measures to minimise the risk to life from fire; and to keep the assessment up to date.
The FSO applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). The law applies to you if you are:
•responsible for business premises
•an employer or self-employed with business premises
•responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
•a charity or voluntary organisation
•a contractor with a degree of control over any premises
•providing accommodation for paying guests
