There are many reasons for a high incidence of unwanted fire signals in education premises, including inappropriate system design, low maintenance standards, equipment failure, vandalism and mis-use to name but a few.

Implementing several simple and easy to follow steps will enable education premises to deliver a real reduction in the incidence of unwanted fire signals; analyse available data, form strategic partnerships with stakeholders, establish appropriateness of the current system, review testing and maintenance and improve management processes.
We can support a wide range of systems including:
  • Fire Alarms
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Air Sampling Smoke Detection (ASD)
  • Fixed & Portable Fire Extinguishing
  • Fire Suppression
  • Radio Fire Alarm Systems
  • Public Address and Voice Alarm Systems
  • Disabled Refuge
  • Leak Detection Systems
The success of this methodology can be seen at Kings College, London. As a maintenance provider, Drax worked closely with their senior safety officer and Honeywell to significantly reduce false fire alarms by a third across 80 college buildings. There was considerable work undertaken and upgrades implemented along with many specific actions and measures put in place which contributed to this success.

Drax also offer innovative alarm management solutions, which can integrate with existing standalone systems to centralise control and monitoring. This can deliver improved safety standards and efficiencies, often with significant cost savings across most organisations. Find out more here.
