Why do fire alarm call points need covers
Fire alarm call points, also known as manual call points, are devices that allow people to manually trigger fire alarms in case of an emergency, but false alarms can be a real problem that’s why having covers on fire alarm call points are an important safety feature that can help prevent false alarms, tampering, and damage, not to mention the cost to businesses, the disruption and the strain on fire and rescue services with this in mind BS 5839-1 added the significant change that manual call points should be fitted with a protective cover to reduce false alarms. Located in section 20.2 b of BS 5839-1 The revision specifically states that "All MCPs should be fitted with a protective cover, which is moved to gain access to the frangible elements”. Whilst the standard does not specifically refer to existing call points, retro fits are available for most industry standard call points. This new change should help prevent accidental activation from impact and should force users of the fire alarm system to lift the cover before activation, thereby adding an extra action to the process of pressing the alarm, to make this action clear to the user of the fire alarm JALITE have add a “Lift cover to operate fire alarm” call point sign.
