Need to Know: Fire Safety Guidelines in Tower Blocks

In response to the tragic events in at Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, London, the Department for Community and Local Government has issued a series of guidelines and safety checks. As recommended by an independent panel of fire safety experts, these guidelines must be carefully reviewed and implemented to prevent further tragedy.

To ensure safety in the interim where buildings are not adequately protected currently, it is detailed in the guidelines that buildings implement ‘interim measures’ which include the following:

‘Provision of a temporary communal fire alarm system, comprising smoke detectors in circulation areas and plant rooms, and fire detectors (possibly heat detectors, rather than smoke detectors) in conjunction with fire alarm sounders in each flat.’ … ‘The system may comprise a wireless system, using radio to link devices.’

The Eurotech Wireless Detection range offers a number of ideal solutions to fully adhere to these guidelines with systems including heat and smoke detectors, sounders and manual call points to name a few.
