Changes in Legislation to EMS 5000 Wireless Fire Alarms

We specialise in wireless fire alarm systems and have fitted numerous systems throughout Oxfordshire.

Change in legislation regarding the EMS System 5000 wireless fire alarms, that came into effect last year, dictates that new installations of wireless systems must be under specific regulations as set out in European Construction Products Regulation 305/2011.

Any currently installed systems are not affected by the changes, but will only be under maintenance agreements until 2018.  EMS will continue to supply parts for repair and maintenance until July of that year.

The wireless fire alarm systems we supply carry a 3 or 5 year warranty. Wireless fire alarm systems have battery lives of either 2-4 or 5 years depending on the environment and whether you have a standard or premier system installed. We will be able to advise you on the exact specifications of your systems, upon inspection of your fire log book.

So what about new installations?

New installations of the EMS wireless fire alarms will be specified as the Firecell Platform. EMS Firecell is a comprehensive analogue addressable fire detection solution, with a set of features that make it one of the most advanced fire detection systems available.

Wireless fire alarms do not require meters of expensive fire proof cable and most importantly there is no down time for your business. Both our systems are programmed off site so they need only be screwed to the walls and ceilings and switched on.

No obligation quote

Monarch Fire (UK) Ltd offer a no obligation quotation service involving a site survey and a quotation service. We endeavour to be on site within 24-48 hours after the initial request or at a convenient time for you. Written quotations are then normally submitted within 3-5 days from the site survey.

Once our quote is accepted we also supply an equipment type and location list to be held in the fire log book so you know what you have and where it is as well as when the next discharge test is due.
