Smoke kills – and heat and panicking during an evacuation kill as well. Every year, dozens of people lose their lives in a fire at their workplace, home, school or in a public place.
A fire detection and alarm system, along with an evacuation plan and good organisation, can warn building occupants as soon as a fire starts, help them evacuate the building calmly and guide them towards a safe location.
Effective detection and alarms require the installation of products whose reliability and compatibility are certified by BOSEC, a voluntary seal of approval that attests to their quality.
Installation standard NBNS21-100: "Fire detection and alarm systems" requires that the automatic fire detection system be EN54-13 certified to guarantee the compatibility of its system components.
The ANPI Certification Division issues EN54-13 system certificates under the BOSEC mark.
