  1. You would be better off asking the fire alarm engineers who have their own dedicated forum.
  2. ................and your question is?
  3. I would guess it's "standby" battery requires changing.
  4. As you said its where the chirping appears to come from. It can not be coming from the base. The base has no components to make any noise, the base is just a means to connect cables to the "socket" the detector plugs into,
  5. Most petrol filling stations do not have a fire alarm, there is no point. Fire alarms are to give automatic warning that there is a fire, most (Not all) petrol station kiosks are so small if there was a fire, it would be easy to give a verbal warning as Tom suggests
  6. ...............and the question is?
  7. When I was making a collection (don't ask) I got mine from ebay. I have just looked some are only £10 each.
  8. Just my thoughts: Whilst I agree with AnthonyB, I look at it that "The customer is always right, even when he is wrong" It's pointless arguing in this case, and if you keep the customer by changing the tags to grey ones I would do it, BUT send them an invoice of £0.00 stating "At customer request change all anti-tamper tags to customer specified grey tags" That way he can not turn round and say you are admitting they are "The wrong colour"
  9. Keep the customer happy and use grey tags. A company I used to work for used a different colour every year.
  10. The "safety lights" (as you called them) usually only illuminate if there is a power failure only. If there was no power failure then they will not illuminate. I have some in my own home for this very reason.
  11. Since you have the particular unit , and I do not have one, what do the instructions say 4 loud beeps every minute mean?
  12. It is usually carried out by specially trained fire extinguisher engineers / demonstrators. I would contact a few fire extinguisher companies local to you and ask them. I understand that you want to demonstrate the correct use of portable fire extinguishers, but I have to ask are you trained to give such information, what would your insurance company say if one of your attendees caused a serious fire?
  13. Just to add, if you could have solar emergency lights, what would happen at night? There would be no sunshine so the lights would illuminate flattening the batteries making them useless. Not to mention that if the solar panels were roof mounted, who would clean them and remove the snow in winter. Solar EM lighting sounds a good idea, but the reality is, it's not possible and with technology, as it is it would still be more economical to buy mains operated EM lights, especially if you consider safe lincs can supply EM lights for less than £16.00 each Click here (Installation NOT included)
  14. Hi AK13, I am sorry to say, but I very much doubt you will get a reply from "Vish" (The person who started this thread) as he posed the question 2 years ago ?, and has never been back and in the vague chance he did reply, as Tom points out, this is a United Kingdom based forum, so our rules / regulations would not apply in America ? I wish you luck in your search. ?
  15. It needs to be corrected by a competent person. My guess is its wired wrong, or it is the wrong type of call point for your fire alarm panel. Not all call points are the same (other than the colour) fire panels look for various things (depending on panel) to indicate fire or fault, some use resistors other use diodes some have a "chip" if when activated the panel does not see what it is looking for then it shows a fault condition which will clear when the BGU is reset (as yours did) this indicates the cable is working but the call point itself is the problem.
