Fire Alarm Frequently Asked Questions

In line with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005, the legislation states that fire alarm systems should be regularly monitored by a competent person and inspected twice a year. Fire alarm systems should be checked by a fully qualified and experienced engineer who has experience and knowledge in maintaining and servicing fire alarm systems.

Fire alarm systems in commercial premises are legally required to be tested weekly which falls under Article 17 of the RRO.

A fire alarm works by detecting particles in the air caused by smoke which causes an alarm, alerting both occupants within a building and an emergency team from a monitoring room or secured location. Two types of detection technologies used are ionisation and photoelectric.

Ultimately, a fire alarm system will be made up of four components that use a network of devices, appliances and control panels that all provide fire safety through:

  • Detection
  • Alert
  • Monitoring
  • Control

Modern fire alarm systems have developed considerably over the past 20 years and have a much better lifespan than older systems. However, it is still advised that homeowners should be replacing hard-wired and battery-operated fire alarm systems every 10 years. If a fire alarm system is not responding efficiently when tested before the 10-year mark, replace it immediately.

  • Smoke detectors and other fire alarm systems should be located on a ceiling as centrally as possible within a room to offer the most optimal fire detection ability.


  • The location of a smoke detector should also be placed 300mm from walls, cupboards, light fittings or any other object in a room that could cause dead air spaces where airflow could be blocked.


  • Smoke detector placement should be at least 3m away from every bedroom door within a property to allow audibility.


  • You should never install a smoke detector in a bathroom or near a bathroom as the steam and moisture that gets created frequently can tamper with the decor, reducing its reliability.
