Sealed Lead Acid Batteries

Sealed lead acid batteries are used to power the panels of many fire alarm and intruder alarm systems. These self-contained units are designed to keep your system live in the event of the mains power to the system being interrupted or cut off for some reason. Discount Fire Extinguishers are specialists in all aspects of fire safety equipment, accessories and peripherals. We stock a wide range of sealed lead acid batteries.

Lead Acid batteries have not changed that much since the 1880's but continued improvements in materials and manufacturing methods are helping to bring improvements in energy density, life and reliability. All lead acid batteries are made up of flat lead plates immersed in a solution of electrolyte. Regular maintenance of your sealed lead acid batteries is advised and manufacturer’s guidelines are easily found on their own websites.

If you ever suspect that your sealed lead acid battery had been banged or dropped it is better to act with caution and replace the battery, as internal unseen damage can prevent your battery from performing as it should and the life of your sealed lead acid battery will be affected. You need to be sure that the sealed lead acid batteries you are using are going to do the job intended even while your home or business premises are vacant.

The sealed lead acid battery within your fire alarm system is as much a part of your overall fire safety equipment as having fire extinguishers or call points. If you don’t follow the advice that is given, have the wrong type or size of battery installed in your system, you could be putting yourself and others at risk. If you are unsure what type or size of battery you need for your system, check with the manufacturers or if replacing an existing battery check the details printed on the battery you remove.
