Smoke alarms

You are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does. Installing and maintaining the right smoke alarm will alert you and your family to the presence of fire or smoke in your home and give you ample time to escape.

What, why and how?

Wessex specialise in the installation and maintenance of all types of fire systems. We offer solutions across the full range of smoke, heat and fire alarms.

There is a wide range of fire alarms on the market, and the choice can be overwhelming. Battery or mains, smoke or heat, and where to locate? There are so many options. As independent specialists, Wessex will give you objective advice on how best to protect your family, home and possessions against the destructive power of fire and smoke.

Our advice, your choice

Low cost, battery-powered smoke detectors have become very popular and are undoubtedly responsible for saving many lives in the UK. However, these devices have limitations, need to be regularly checked and tend to provide just a local alarm.

We can advise on, and supply, anything from the simplest, single battery-operated smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarms for rooms with open fires, to a heat detection system for kitchens and fully integrated fire alarm networks for larger properties or vulnerable residents. Our residential clients range from single-person dwellings, flats and small houses, to large listed buildings, multiple structure properties and unique residential structures.

Specialist fire alarm systems

If you have an unusual, listed or thatched property we can advise on specialist systems such as air sampling and linear heat detection to maximise detection speed while appearing incongruous and obtrusive.

Remote monitoring

Wessex can provide remote monitoring services for your premises to ensure that you are alerted as soon as possible to any risk to your property.

Fewer false alarms

False alarms are disruptive and distressing, and Wessex is committed to minimising false alarm activations. We are well-practised at striking the exact balance between alert sensitivity and accuracy.

High tech, great value

Despite the huge scope of cutting edge technology available to us, we will always prioritise your needs and strive to bring you the best value fire alarm system solution for your budget.
