Facilities Management

The Facility Management sector has a duty of care for its clients and their staff as well as having to provide constant protection of property and assets from the threat of fire. Learn the key benefits of specifying Hochiki products for your property portfolio.

Risky Environment

Healthcare sites present an environment with many risks and an increased potential for many types of fire from kitchens to laboratories.

Multi-level Risk

FM sites present various LEVELS of risk and as such sometimes pose specific response procedures.

Complex Environment

The Healthcare environment is complex, with a multitude of risk TYPES coupled with a large number of members of the public and patients, some of which cannot be easily evacuated.

Evacuation Planning

Healthcare staff need to be signalled in the event of an alarm discreetly to avoid unduly upsetting patients, particularly the elderly and infirm.

False Alarm Disturbance

The costs to the Trust to mobilise a Fire Response Team in a typical hospital can amount to well over £1000, false alarms cause undue panic but more importantly, incur a huge waste of resources.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order

The RRFSO imposes a requirement to minimise unwanted fire alarms. Under their duty of care, head teachers, governors & college principles must be able to provide evidence that a system is fit for purpose and is designed, installed, commissioned & maintained in accordance with the relevant standards by competent contractors.

Enhanced Sensitvity

Enhanced sensitivity of our Photoelectric Smoke Sensor, means it's equally sensitive to a wide range of fire/smoke types.

Sensitivity Adjustments

Hochiki has the functionality to adjust sensor sensitivities (prealarm and alarm) to suit any specific risk.

False Alarm Reduction

Proven reliability and virtual elimination of false alarms due to a suite of software enhancements to the robust Hochiki ESP communications protocol.

Diverse Product Range

Hochiki offers a wide range of sounders capable of emitting a selection of tones at differing volumes as well as a range of visual alarm devices fully compliant to EN54 Part 23 to suit any environment or requirement based on the risk assessment.

Low Cost of Ownership

Added flexibility, low cost of ownership to the end user and the benefits of the enhanced, virtually error-free communications protocol (ESP) ensure Hochiki's products remain cost-effective, reliable and problem-free.

Reliable System

Hochiki understands the importance of a reliable and smooth running life safety system. All unwanted alarms are disruptive, creating panic in the ensuing evacuation. Also, if there is a reoccurrance of false alarms, disbelief and complacency can occur during a real fire – something that could prove to be deadly.
