The 5 stages of your BURGLAR alarm installation:

Check out the steps below to see what’s involved in your fire alarm installation and all the ways you’ll benefit by choosing us for this mission to get your premises equipped with a reliable and sustainable life safety system…

STEP 1: BRIEF & SURVEY

Once you enquire, we'll listen to your needs to get a proper brief of your requirements.

To put an accurate cost and design proposal together, we'll most likely need to attend your site to carry out a survey. (If you require a wireless alarm then we'll also carry out a radio survey to ensure it's adequate enough to transmit signals.)

If you have floor plans of your building and a Fire Risk Assessment, we can get to work even faster! (We can always carry out your Fire Risk Assessment for you.)

PAY LESS NOW WITH A PAY MONTHLY PLAN!

With WFP, there’s no need sacrifice fire safety if you’re facing budget limitations. You can opt to lease your installation which spreads the cost so you get the solution you need now without the financial hassle. (See further down the page to see how this works.)

STEP 2: THE DESIGN

Your Fire Risk Assessment will stipulate which category of fire alarm you need (i.e. what level of fire detection is required.) This could be an:

We’ll also help you decide whether a wired or wireless fire alarm system would be the best fit for your building. 

Think of it like your Internet modem – do you want the system to run being directly linked to the modem or operate over wireless signals? Both have their pros and cons, and you can even opt to have a hybrid system which uses elements of both. Pretty neat, eh?

‘WFP’ stands for ‘Wire-Free Protection’ as when we first started out it was specialising particularly in wireless alarms. Of course, whether you need this type of system or not will be totally dependent on the 3 Bs: your BuildingBespoke needs and Budget

Once we’ve collated the specification then we can get to work on the design before providing you with a cost proposal and scheme of works.

STEP 3: Your Installation

Now we can get started on getting your fire alarm system in your building!

Once we've had your confirmation we'll order the parts and materials and get a date in the diary to commence the installation.

We will always work around you and take your premises' individual needs into account.

Your installation will be overseen by our Project Manager who will make sure the installation runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

The way WFP planned the works and implemented meant the project ran very smoothly. Information was communicated concisely and promptly, disruption to the building occupiers was minimal; in fact, people hardly noticed the works. These large building fire alarm replacements are never easy, but WFP made it look so. We would recommend.

STEP 4: YOUR ALARM WILL BE SIGNED OFF

This stage is often referred to as 'Fire Alarm Commissioning' whereby we'll make sure that everything is in tip-top shape and installed as per the initial design and Fire Risk Assessment.

We'll also run through some training with you and/or the person who will be responsible for the management of the alarm (e.g. for weekly testing) for familiarity and confidence using the system.

STEP 5: WARRANTY, MAINTENANCE & 24/7 SUPPORT

Once we've completed your fire detection and alarm system installation, your 1-year manufacturer's warranty will kick in.

However, if you use us for the periodical maintenance of your system (typically required every six months as a legal requirement, but can be required more frequently depending on your Fire Risk Assessment) then WFP will upgrade you to a pretty sweet 5-year warranty! (We'll no doubt discuss this in Steps 1 & 2.)

BONUS STEP 6: EVACUATION SYSTEMS

If you've had a temporary fire alarm installed in a residential block due to fire safety failings (e.g. poor cladding), once you've rectified those structural problems and your building has returned to its 'Stay Put' policy, you can either choose to remove your fire alarm, keep it in - or implement an evacuation system.

This is what the Fire Brigade will use to facilitate a controlled evacuation in the event of a fire. We'll go through this in Step 2 (if your building is a block of flats) to make sure the wiring infrastructure in the design of your fire alarm will allow for later use as an evacuation system.

ENJOY 'OPEN PROTOCOL' FREEDOM

Some alarm system installers operate on a ‘closed protocol’ basis, which means only they can touch the alarm for things like repairs, maintenance and system expansion. This can be a trap which people unknowingly fall into, thereby having no choice but to stick with them, even if they weren’t happy with the level of service and wanted to switch providers.

At WFP, customer happiness and quality of service is at the top of our priority list. So, we figured ‘why deceive and lock people in?’ If, after your installation, you want to move on to another maintenance service provider to service your alarm then you can. The vast majority do stick with us but you’re definitely not tied down!
