Protecting life and property inside any building is one of the most vital security factors necessary in all homes, projects, and commercial premises. Group GA take fire safety incredibly seriously, and we know that we can be counted on to provide high quality systems to a vast range of establishments, with minimal disruption and maximum efficiency.
Fire alarms are essential for not only peace of mind, but for effectively saving lives due to uncontrolled blazes. Detecting fires early via smoke alarm and fire safety systems doubles the chance of survival for those directly affected by an inflammation, which makes them a vitally important tool for commercial, residential and project properties alike.
Our expertise in fire safety ensures that all of our systems are thoroughly planned, checked and tested for reliable fire detection and sound emission, alerting the inhabitants of properties early and effectively. All of our available fire alarm systems are highly advanced, and are installed with meticulous attention to detail.

What different types of fire alarms are available?
There are four main types of alarm on the market, all of which have separate installation requirements, and all are also available from us here at GA Fire & Security:
- Flame Detection
- IONISATION ALARMS – These alarms are sensitive to small particles of smoke which are often produced by fast-flaming fires. It’s advisable to not install ionisation alarms near kitchens or hallways as they are liable to false alarm due to the fumes caused by cooking.
- OPTICAL ALARMS – These are extremely effective in detecting larger smoke particles from slower burning or smouldering fires. These are not suitable for bathrooms as they can false alarm when exposed to steam, but are good for kitchens and other spaces where there is circulation.
- MULTI-SENSOR ALARMS – Multi-sensor alarms contain two sensing elements: optical and heat detection. Because these alarms monitor both smoke and temperature, they are very responsive to all types of fire and are a huge safety improvement over traditional, single-sensor alarms. They also do not tend to false alarm as often as ionisation or optical alarms.
- HEAT ALARMS – These alarms can detect an increase in temperature and are completely insensitive to smoke.
How much will it cost to install a reliable, safe fire alarm system into my property?

While our costs start from £400, a complete quote for your property would be more accurate after a structural survey and fire safety assessment.
