Fire Alarms for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
Bristol – Bath – Cheltenham - Weston-super-Mare - Swindon
Castle Security specialise in supplying and fitting, repairing and maintaining fire alarms for Bristol landlords, letting agencies and housing associations and those in the surrounding regions.
There is sometimes confusion about what an HMO is, but, according to the Housing Act 2004 and The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005 an HMO is any property with more than 1 household and with more than 2 people living in it. HMO landlords must have a licence from their local Council Housing Department which is valid for three years, before it needs renewing.
What Will You Need?
Having carried out a risk assessment of your property/properties and if you provide sleeping accommodation, you may well need:
- fire extinguishers and blankets,
- emergency escape lighting,
- automatic fire detection equipment. This comprises smoke and heat detectors, manual call points (break glass points), electronic siren or bell and a control and indicator panel
Castle Security can help with all of the above. We fit automatic fire detection to different premises dependant on the grade of system required from L2, or L3 to Grade A LD2 and Grade D LD2 or 3.
In order to reduce the occurance of false fire alarms, we recommend that in addition to the testing carried out by your responsible person, you also carry out at least an annual maintenance check on your fire alarm system.
