Fire Alarms

Modern systems go well beyond simply sounding an alarm.

Our installations can tell you how much fire there is and where it originates from, or can sample the air for the faintest scent of smoke from even a smouldering fire with no flame. A reliable fire detection system will save lives and minimise costly damage to your buildings and property.

All buildings whether publicly or privately owned have a legal requirement for a minimum level of fire protection. Here at Aspire Fire we can ensure that you have the necessary level of protection to fulfil these requirements. There is a broader than ever range of cost-effective solutions to choose from in order to suit the needs of your business.

As well as installing systems Aspire Fire also offers a range of fire alarm maintenance packages.
A maintenance support package not only ensures you have access to immediate support in the event of a system malfunction, it will also help with compliance record keeping and avoid emergency call costs.

Any project starts with a Fire Risk Assessment, this involves a comprehensive assessment of the site and buildings. Based on the results of the assessment we can then design, install or repair any equipment as necessary to ensure new and existing buildings comply with Australian Fire Regulations and maintain structural fire integrity.
Once your system is in place, periodic maintenance checks and a fast response to repair needs will ensure it operates with maximum efficiency.

  • We can offer a full range of fire alarm systems from simple conventional panels to highly sophisticated addressable systems
  • We have a comprehensive understanding of the Standards in Australia and can offer advice to our clients as to what is required to make a system compliant
  • We represent a range of manufacturers and are happy to take over the maintenance and testing of both new and existing installations

Fire Alarm Installation Process

  • Survey

    The first step of creating a Fire Alarm System is to do a complete site survey to see what is needed, we can then fully meet all your requirements and make sure you are fully protected.

  • Design & Installation

    We firstly design the system to make sure all aspects are taken into account. Once this is agreed upon we will install the system with minimum disruption to you. We fully test each system to make sure it’s in full working order before we finish.

  • Maintenance

    Once your Fire Alarm System has been installed we offer maintenance contracts which will keep your system in full working order if it is called upon. This is an extremely important part as your fire alarm needs to work when you need it the most.

    Your Fire Alarm system requires testing monthly, six monthly, annually and five yearly in accordance with AS1851-2012.

    Upon completion of fire alarm inspections, a report is produced detailing the condition of the system and listing the areas of any non-compliance, which creates a database and asset register for future on-going inspections.

  • 24 hour maintenance and fast response

    Assured all your concerns or issues will be dealt with as we provide a 24 hour callout facility with all service contracts.

Types of Fire Alarms offered by Aspire Fire

Conventional Fire Alarm Systems

The hardware associated with a conventional fire alarm tends to be much cheaper than the other types of alarm, however they are more difficult to install because they require more wiring, which in turn means more time is needed from installation team.

A conventional system won’t be able to tell you the precise location of the fire, however if they are wired correctly they will be able to divide your premises into zones.

This means they can still be used as a cheaper solution even in premises with multiple floors or areas as long as the arrangement is fairly simple. However we wouldn’t recommend them for more complex buildings.

Addressable Fire Alarm Systems

Addressable Alarm Systems are a little more sophisticated than the more basic conventional type. Every device connected to the addressable system has its own unique address – hence the name.

This means that when a fire is detected, the fire alarm control panel is able to tell you exactly which device has been activated, whether it’s a detector or a call point. This in turn means you have more chance of locating the fire and putting it out quickly.

Whilst addressable systems cost a little more, they can be easier to install than conventional systems because all of the devices are connected to one, wire ‘loop’, rather than by individual cables.

They also have the potential to save your business money over time as they are less prone to false alarms and more effective in the case of actual fire. They are definitely worth considering for any commercial building that is a little more complex.

Wireless Fire Alarm Systems

Wireless Fire Alarm Systems are great for premises that need to take appearances into account, such as high-end retail outlets, or who are restricted from doing much with the property, such as heritage buildings.

As the name suggests, they require no cabling so are very quick and simple to install. However the systems themselves are expensive and have a number of ongoing costs associated with them.

Primarily this ongoing cost is the regular replacement of batteries. These need to be frequently checked and replaced if necessary. Some wireless systems use bespoke batteries which are more expensive than the standard types you’re used to buying in the shops.

Because of the ongoing cost, we would recommend wireless systems in specialist cases as mentioned above, or as a temporary fire safety solution where it’s not feasible to install a wired system, such as on building sites.

Other types of Fire Alarm System

Outside of the three main types of Fire Alarm System, there are many variations of detector, call point and warning systems.
