The most basic fire alarm system can take the form of battery or mains operated smoke detectors placed in strategic locations around your home in Otley.

Additional Life Protection - Category L2: More suited for factories and HMO premises in Otley, an L2 fire alarm system adds detection devices to all areas of a building, including possible escape routes, corridors and high risk places like kitchens and boiler rooms.

Standard Life Protection - Category L3: Any room that opens out to an escape route, as well as escape route corridors and stairwells require some form of linked detection to allow occupants to leave a building safely. This ensures people will not be directed in a fire towards any affected areas.

Modest Life Protection - Category L4: Only escape routes and gathering points require detectors to be installed to ensure a safe passage out of a building in Otley.

Localised Life Protection - Category L5: Used to identify and protect a specific area of a building in Otley that has a perceived higher risk of fire. This could be because of the storage of certain materials, or the way in which the room is used.

Maximum Property Protection - Category P1: A P1 fire alarm system utilises detectors in all rooms of a building in Otley in order to detect and alert the relevant authorities of a fire. This ensures any critical components of a business face a lower risk of disruption due to a fire and thus reduces any financial setback.

Minimum Property Protection - Category P2: Fire and smoke detectors are placed in high risk areas only, which while not as comprehensive as a P1 system, does reduce the risk of a substantial fire taking hold within a building in Otley.


Purchasing a fire alarm system for your home or business in Otley requires your equipment to be maintained regularly in order to keep it working properly. The emphasis we place on these systems to protect us should not be forgotten and the only way to know your fire safety and detection systems are working is to inspect, service and test them.

Fire Alarm Maintenance Otley (LS21)

A reputable fire alarm company in Otley will offer a period of maintenance as part of a package; in fact some systems will come with maintenance and testing as standard. As with all electric and electronic systems, parts and components can degrade over time. Batteries may need replacing and dust or other debris may need to be removed from sensors and equipment. A regular maintenance schedule will provide for all these factors and keep your fire alarm system in Otley working smoothly.

If your fire alarm system in Otley is linked to an external agency, be it the fire service or private security agency, you will need to liaise with them to perform testing. This will stop unnecessary call outs which could incur a charge if it is found to be a false alarm.

Testing and maintenance inspections by your Otley fire alarm company should include the replacement of any batteries as required, cleaning and calibration of sensors (optical or heat sensors), and a test of the various components to ensure their sensitivity and serviceability. This may require specialist equipment to carry out properly.

A specialist Otley company may be able to provide training for certain maintenance aspects, such as monthly tests and battery replacements. But annual servicing requirements, especially in certain industries and businesses, are set out in fire regulations and must be adhered to.
