Fire safety advice for landlords in Leeds
The tragic fire which devastated Grenfell Tower in London in 2017 continues to be a shocking reminder of the importance of fire safety in high-rise buildings. As the events at Grenfell Tower have shown, fire safety is something which cannot be compromised upon and is something which is literally a matter of life and death for landlords.
At Dalec we have many years of expertise in working with landlords to provide fire and electrical services for landlords, including the installation, maintenance and servicing of fire alarm systems, heat and smoke detectors.
It goes without saying that prevention is so much better than cure and when it comes to fire protection in high rise buildings, the installation of smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors will significantly reduce the risk of death or injury.
Where smoke alarms are concerned it is important to remember that the more you have the better. Having multiple alarms gives tenants a much better chance of escape in the event of a fire but in large, multi-storey flats or tower blocks, a network of interconnected alarms is the safest option.
There are a huge range of different fire alarm systems available, with options designed to meet the safety requirements of high-rise buildings, including flats and tower blocks. Different buildings call for different systems and here at Dalec we are happy to provide advice on the most suitable way to protect your tenants from the risk of fire.
