Johnson Controls, (NYSE: JCI) the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, is delighted to announce that it is the first national BAFE SP207 accredited evacuation alert specialist.
The BAFE SP207 scheme, developed in conjunction with the fire safety industry and the Fire and Rescue Service, sets a vital industry standard for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of evacuation alert systems. Organisations that meet the scheme’s stringent criteria become third-party certificated and BAFE Registered, giving customers peace of mind that they can entrust them with their fire-safety systems. The scheme was developed as a result of new consultations into high-rise buildings, which demonstrate the necessity of providing safe and compliant evac-alert systems in times of emergency.
The accreditation is a testament to Johnson Controls’ expertise in delivering high-performance, fully accredited evac-alert systems, and provides reassurance to customers that it operates in full accordance with industry best practice at the highest level. From detection through to suppression, the team of specialised fire-safety experts are on hand to ensure that high-rise buildings have the right tools in place to protect occupants and meet Johnson Controls’ exacting standards.
Johnson Controls provides the world’s most comprehensive range of fully BSI-compliant evacuation alert systems, with all products meeting BS8629:2019 industry standards. Installation is carried out by fully qualified BAFE SP207 engineers that specialise in high-rise buildings, to ensure that all systems are secure and fit for purpose. Meeting the strict criteria required to secure this accreditation cements Johnson Controls as a trusted expert in fire safety and gives customers confidence in the competence of their building’s emergency systems.
Adam Norris, Sales Director for Fire & Security within Johnson Controls commented: ‘It is an honour to be the first national BAFE SP207 accredited evacuation alert specialist, and our fully qualified engineers are already working on some exciting new install projects. This accreditation solidifies our position as a trusted fire safety partner for our clients and marks a vital step in the industry to ensure that buildings are safe for all. Fire-safety systems are the one piece of equipment you hope you never have to use, but ensuring that yours is compliant, and meets new standards like BAFE SP207, can really save lives.’
