Call Point Equipment

A fire alarm call point is a physical device that lets a person activate an alarm in the event of smoke, fire or other emergency being detected.Discount Fire Extinguishers have a range of these devices and replacement parts to ensure they are operational at all time.

The fire alarm call point equipment should be installed at a height of 1400mm above the floor at a level that is easily accessible and in a conspicuous position. Places for sighting call point equipment should include; exit routes, front and back door, fire escapes and fire doors as well as on landings of staircases. A fire alarm call point equipment device should be spaced so that one may always be found within no more the 30m distance of another device. You will often find Fire Extinguishers close by a call point. Call point equipment should form part of a complete Fire Alarm Equipment system.
