Hotels and Guest House Fire Alarms

Securi-Guard Fire and Security have a number of cost effective wired and wireless fire alarm systems to meet the requirements of your risk assessment and the Regulatory Reform Order (RRO). The guides address sleeping accommodation for staff, common areas for residents and sleeping, dining or other accommodation for guests/residents including:

Sleeping Accommodation
The RRO Act covers all types of sleeping accommodations types.

Please see: for full information.

Fire Detection and Warning Systems
Virtually all premises that this guide applies to will need a fire detection and warning system incorporating automatic fire detection, sounders and manually operated call points (break-glass boxes). Dependent of the Risk Assessment these would be required to meet BS 5839-1:2002 or BS 5839-6:2004. Different ranges of equipment meet these two standards.

In simple, premises of limited size/occupation e.g. ground and first floor with a small number of guest/residents, an alternative system of interconnected smoke alarms or point detectors, incorporating interconnected manual call points and, where necessary separate sounders may be acceptable.

In more complex premises, such as the sleeping areas of hotels, boarding schools or student accommodation, you will probably need an automatic fire detection and warning system with a control panel which is able to identify either the zone or the specific location where the alarm has been raised. The control panel (or a repeat panel) should be located near the entrance to the premises.
