Fire Alarm

Keeping you and your business safe and secure

DESL Electrical Contractors Ltd carry out fire alarm and security installations throughout Farnham, Aldershot, Farnborough, Camberley, Guildford, Surrey, Hampshire & South East. All types of fire alarm and security systems are designed, installed and maintained to the relevant British Standard BS 5839.

We are accustomed to working in highly sensitive areas having carried out installation, commission and maintenance contracts in working schools, colleges, hospitals, shopping centres, factories etc.  We fully understand the nature of carrying out installation and maintenance contracts within these environments and we work hard to build a relationship with our clients to ensure that all contracts are completed on time and with minimal disruption.

It is of the utmost importance and a legal requirement to carry out regular fire alarm testing using the correct procedure and have the results recorded in a suitable log book.  Below are some statistics from the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) website underlining the need to take fire safety seriously.
