Firesafe 4 Zone Fire Panel with Batteries
The demand for approved product is increasing. Installation companies that achieve BAFE SP203 accreditation for example are duty-bound to used compliant product wherever possible. Plus, as stories circulate of people being fined or in some cases being sent to prison for not taking fire safety seriously enough, so does the demand for traceable compliant product.
Why is approval important?
To be approved to a standard by a recognised certification body gives reassurance to the user that you have indeed succeeded in complying with a standard. The introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order means the onus is now on the person responsible for a building's fire safety to reduce its risk from fire by carrying out a risk assessment and acting upon its findings. If they fail to do so they could face a fine or litigation. Clearly, an effective fire alarm system is key to the fire risk management of most buildings and the best way to prove it is fit for purpose is to show (through certification) that the equipment used is compliant with the relevant standard(s). If you were the person responsible for the fire safety in your workplace wouldn't you feel safer knowing the product you've had fitted has been third-party certificated? Moreover, if you are a wholesaler (or installer) selling or installing a fire alarm panel wouldn't you feel safer knowing the same? The demand for approved product is increasing. Installation companies that achieve BAFE SP203 accreditation for example are duty-bound to used compliant product wherever possible. Plus, as stories circulate of people being fined or in some cases being sent to prison for not taking fire safety seriously enough, so does the demand for traceable compliant product. Approval provides a high degree of confidence in the performance of a product as it involves regular auditing to ensure compliance with the prevailing standards (which are subject to regular revision). This ongoing auditing process also helps to confirm that the product on the market is exactly the same as the product which was originally tested and approved. If any one questions the compliance of your product, you can show them the LPCB certificate.
The lid has a combined keypad/keyswitch entry using our new style plastic keyswitch
• Two on board relays provide (Fire and Fault) - previously you needed to purchase an extra relay board for relays
• Our fully approved panel has all of the engineering functions that the original FCFP standard panel, but there will be a note in the instructions saying coincidence or non-latching zones (if used) are outside the scope of EN54
• The panel is compliant with the latest versions of both EN54-2 and EN54-4 (both now Amendment 2). As a result this will mean the panel can be CE marked as being compliant with the Construction Products Directive (CPD) and has battery impedance fault monitoring • Designed to fully comply with EN54 parts 2 and 4 • Attractive flush or surface mountable plastic lid and enclosure (no bezel required) • Four conventional sounder circuits • Class change and alert inputs • Auxiliary fault, reset remote and auxillary fire outputs (1xFBF376N if relay contacts are required per output) • Wide range of engineering functions including zone test, non-latching zones, programmable delays and coincidence • Ancillary connections for up to eight two-wire repeaters and a relay board • Fully LPCB approved • Certificate number 176a
