Fire is among the most serious dangers we face and, according to statistics provided by the Home Office, there are more than 100,000 fires in buildings every year, sadly resulting in the death of around 600 people. The obvious emotional and financial losses of such risks are incalculable and, as a result, reliable and effective fire detection and alarm systems are essential to minimise the risks.
Metroline Security has been installing and maintaining a vast range of fire alarms to businesses throughout Kent for the past twenty years. These fire alarm systems are professionally installed and, where necessary, integrated with existing security systems to provide comprehensive fire protection for your premises.

of Fire Alarms
Simply having a fire alarm system installed does not automatically mean that you the level of protection you need. By having your fire alarm remotely monitored, the fire alarm signalling if connect to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). In the event that the fire alarm is triggered, the ARC is aware within seconds and the emergency services and keyholders can be summoned.
Fire alarm monitoring therefore ensures that your premises are protected around the clock, not simply when occupied. Businesses, schools and other non-residential buildings are largely unoccupied for the majority of the time. It is therefore imperative to put the appropriate level of fire and security protection in place to look after your assets.
