The FIA stands with Ukraine. This mindless aggression by the Russian state will end in tragedy, one way or the other. The bravery and resilience of the Ukrainian people are an inspiration to the world, and we should do what we can to support them in their hour of need.

The UK fire industry can stand up and be counted in two ways; one is to damage the Russian appetite for war with sanctions and the other is to support the Ukrainians.

The new Waking Watch Replacement Fund is now open for buildings of all heights, rather than those over 18m high only. Following on from the original £30m Waking Watch Relief Fund, this additional £27m has been released by the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC). 

The new Replacement Fund will pay for the installation of fire alarm systems to remove or reduce the need for temporary fire safety measures such as waking watch and fire marshal services. This will help end leaseholders being forced to pay for Waking Watches and encourage the installation of fire alarms in an estimated 300 additional buildings across England.

Eurotech has already been working with installers for a number of housing associations and building owners, installing intelligent wireless life safety and fire detection systems fully approved to all relevant parts of EN54 in high-rise buildings across London including Brixton, Poplar, Stratford, Wembley and Westminster, Leeds and Manchester.

To be eligible for the Waking Watch Replacement Fund, buildings must:

The Government have confirmed that the CE mark can be used until 1 January 2023.

Ian Moore, CEO at the Fire Industry Association states: “We are proud to have worked collaboratively with the Government to highlight our industry’s concerns with the implementation of the UKCA mark and the timeline that was previously suggested. We have been working with the overwhelming majority of our members through our UKCA Special Interest Group to discuss the impact of the UKCA mark and communicate their issues to the Government. This positive result comes after the extensive time and effort that has been undertaken by the FIA team on behalf of our members.” 

The Government have now confirmed that they will grant a 12 month extension for UK products to continue using the EU’s “CE” safety mark.

“Recognising the impact of the pandemic on businesses, the government will extend this deadline to 1 January 2023 to apply UKCA marks for certain products to demonstrate compliance with product safety regulations, rather than 1 January 2022,” the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said.

The Government website on the UKCA states:

‘You can continue to use the CE marking for goods placed on the market in Great Britain until 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking must be used for placing goods on the market in Great Britain from 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking can be used now and we encourage businesses to start using the UKCA marking as soon as possible.’

For the full FIA article and more information on the FIA’s communications with the Government, please click here.

The FIA have been in constant communication with the government and the relevant approval bodies over the last year voicing the concerns of the fire safety industry on the impact of implementing the new UKCA mark.

To summarise the latest communications:

1) The Government have confirmed that the CE mark will remain a legal mark to be used in the UK after January 1 2022 – further information is required from the Government with a clear timeline for the required withdrawal of CE marking under the Building Safety Bill.

2) Products with the CE mark will continue to be placed and sold within the UK beyond 2021 under the current legislation, with further updates from the Government.

3) Following on from the previous advice given by the Government, the FIA continues to recommend that you use this extended timescale to carry on the process of transitioning your products to the new UKCA/UKNI marks alongside the required CE marking.

It is important to remind our customers that CE Marked products can still be used in the fire industry after January 1st 2022, with the FIA seeking confirmation from the government on the timescale for the ultimate withdrawal of the CE Mark.

We are keeping a close eye on the developments and following the FIA’s updates on the subject, and any more news will be communicated through our website, social media channels and email communications.

This new range of high-performance wireless detection, control and alarm devices is based on a new protocol that offers exceptional capabilities, quality and reliability. Combined with user-friendly survey, install, commissioning and maintenance software, the Sygno-fi range revolutionises the wireless fire systems market.

The Sygno-fi wireless platform is suitable for both small-medium or large sites, with the capability to handle up to 128 devices per wireless translator and 240 per hybrid loop, along with a 10-year battery life on sensors, call points and inputs and five years on output devices, sounders and VADs.

A significant benefit of the Sygno-fi system is that it is open protocol, so it is easily integrated with multiple addressable fire alarm panels providing the flexibility and choice over which fire panel to integrate with.

Sygno-fi devices use 60 communications channels to ensure interference and channel collisions are avoided, and each device uses dual redundant technology. So if one channel fails, another takes over automatically, ensuring no downtime and maximum performance and reliability. Also, if any expander module in the chain fails, the transmission path uses an alternate route, ensuring communication continuity. Each Sygno-fi translator supports up to 15 network expanders and the best possible redundant communication paths are identified and tested automatically during commissioning, providing the most reliable and robust communication pathway possible.

The bespoke software is designed to be user-friendly, allowing each Sygno-fi system to be specified with ease for the differing needs of each individual site.

Michelle Agius, Eurotech’s Managing Director says:

“We’re really excited at the introduction of our new Sygno-fi range. Our customers will really see the benefit of using Sygno-fi due to the performance of these devices combined with the ease and convenience of a non-wired system.”

Here at Eurotech, we take pride in our post-sales support, technical service provision and reliability when it comes to helping you with your client’s fire system needs. We only provide the best, most robust fire safety systems and the Sygno-fi range encompasses those values. The Sygno-fi range is open protocol and suitable for use with addressable panels such as our Toccare Touchscreen Fire Alarm Panel, which when partnered together offers an easy to use, exceptional fire safety system for your clients.

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) Marking is a planned government-imposed product marking scheme for products placed on the market in Great Britain. This covers goods which previously required only CE Marking.

The industry is currently confused assuming that products need to be showing the UKCA mark now. But good news – there is still time to get your mark!

This is not currently required until 01 January 2022.

The Fire Industry Association has been in communication with the government regarding the UKCA mark, discussing the effects of this marking in the fire safety industry as the changes are predicted to cost millions. The transition period has been extended from 12 months to 36 months to allow businesses that rely on compliance to stay open, giving time to implement the mark.

Eurotech have a wide range of cross listed products that are affected by these changes.  We have therefore shared our concerns with the FIA who likewise share our concerns and appreciate the hard work, stress on our business, our suppliers and our customers, required to implement these changes.

It is important to remind our customers that the UKCA Mark is NOT required until 1st January 2022 and CE Marked products can still be used in the fire industry.

We are keeping a close eye on the developments and following the FIA’s updates on the subject, and any more news will be communicated through our website, social media channels and email communications.

The announcement yesterday of an additional £3.5bn government fund to remove unsafe high-rise cladding will be welcome news for building residents. An estimated 700,000 people in the UK are still living in high-rise buildings with flammable cladding.

Thousands of those tenants and leaseholders across the UK have been subjected to expensive monthly costs for Waking Watch or fire marshall services to ensure 24/7 fire safety. Since the Grenfell tragedy in June 2017, buildings with unsafe high-rise cladding had their ‘stay put’ policy changed to one of ‘simultaneous evacuation’. To enable this, a round the clock Waking Watch service was required, with the cost often passed onto the building’s residents.

A £30m Waking Watch Relief Fund was announced recently for building owners to install Category L5 fire alarm systems designed in accordance with BS 5839-part 1 and NFCC guidance for simultaneous evacuation systems. This would negate the cost of a Waking Watch service but there still remained a high risk from a building fire similar to that seen at Grenfell whilst waiting for cladding removal.

Recent data released states that of those buildings identified as having ACM (aluminium composite material) cladding, 91% of social sector buildings have had their cladding removed. However, in the private sector, only 42% of buildings have had cladding completely removed.

This leaves a high number of people still paying for expensive Waking Watch services and increased insurance premiums whilst waiting for the installation of a fire alarm system and removal of dangerous cladding materials.

Michelle Agius, Managing Director of Eurotech says: “Yesterday’s announcement can only be a good thing. We’ve been working with some of our clients to install fire alarm systems in high-rise buildings over the last few months. Whilst this helps with the ongoing monthly costs they’ve been facing, hopefully this additional funding will help speed up the removal of this dangerous cladding and help them feel safe in their own homes again.”

The recent announcement of the new Waking Watch Relief Fund is excellent news for high-rise building residents who face the extortionate monthly costs for a 24/7 waking watch service.

The new £30m fund will pay for the installation of Category L5 fire alarm systems designed in accordance with BS 5839-part 1 and NFCC guidance for simultaneous evacuation systems in high-rise buildings. This will remove or reduce the need for temporary fire safety measures such as waking watch and fire marshal services.

Eurotech have already been working with installers for a number of housing associations and building owners, installing intelligent wireless life safety and fire detection systems fully approved to all relevant parts of EN54 in high-rise buildings across London including Brixton, Poplar, Stratford, Wembley and Westminster, Leeds and Manchester.

However, with an estimated 1700 buildings in the UK with dangerous combustible materials on their facades, there is still a long way to go to ensure better, long term fire safety for these dangerous buildings and their residents.

Michelle Agius, Managing Director of Eurotech says: “The announcement of this fund will go a huge way towards making these buildings safer, and reducing the financial burden of waking watch services which is often met by the residents of these buildings. We have already been involved in numerous high-rise fire alarm installation projects prior to the fund availability, and expect that many building owners will be keen to access this new funding to help ensure the fire safety of their premises and their residents.”

To be eligible for the Waking Watch Relief Fund, buildings must:
