As an SSAIB Registered Intruder Alarm Installer, we will risk assess your property and grade your alarm according to SSAIB criteria. All our intruder alarms meet the required installation standard to conform to European Standards BS EN 50131 series.
EN 50131 defines four grades of Intruder alarm system, 4 being the highest. The grade is measured by how resilient the alarm system is to attacks by intruders and other outside influences.
All components of the system are graded, including the control panel, motion detectors (PIRs) and signalling equipment. Most commercial premises will require a Grade 2 or 3 alarm system. The majority of insurance companies require a Grade 3 system where the system is a requirement of insurance cover.
The risk assessment includes a location survey and a technical survey. The location survey covers the nature of the building and how easy it would be to break into, and the contents of the building according to how desirable they are and how likely to be targeted. The technical survey covers factors influencing the design of the system, including any factors that might affect the performance of the system such as localised electrical interference. We’ll also take into account any requirements from your insurer that you inform us of.
