Fire Alarm Systems

Nelson Alarms specialise in quality stand-alone fire alarm systems which are installed by experienced technicians to New Zealand standards - fire detection and alarm systems in buildings NZS4512:2003.

Nelson Alarms are registered with both the Nelson City and Tasman District Councils as IQP's, authorised to carry out monthly fire system checks.

  • Extensions and alterations to existing systems
  • Smoke and heat detection
  • Smoke and fire door control
  • Evacuation systems
  • Remote monitored systems
  • Direct brigade connected systems

Benefits:
  • A complying fire alarm system can reduce insurance costs
  • Protect building, stock, plant and staff
  • All systems independently inspected and certified



You may be required by the New Zealand Building Code to have a fire alarm system, in which case you will have a fire report (which forms part of your building consent application) for your building.  Alternatively you may choose to voluntarily have a system installed.  More information on the NZ Fire Service website.

There are different types of systems and the type, size and use of your building will determine what type is specified on the fire report.

Types of Fire Alarm Systems:

  • Type 2 - A single or multizone manual fire alarm system with automatic signalling to a remote receiving centre.
  • Type 2f - Same as above, but direct connection to the Fire Service is not required provided a telephone is installed and freely available at all times to enable '111' calls to be made.
  • Type 3 - An automatic fire alarm system activated by heat detectors and manual call points with automatic signalling to a remote receiving centre.
  • Type 3f - Same as above, but direct connection to the Fire Service is not required provided a telephone is installed and freely available at all times to enable '111' calls to be made.
  • Type 4 - An automatic fire alarm system activated by smoke detectors and manual call points with automatic signalling to a remote receiving centre.  NB: In some circumstances, heat detectors may be allowed to be substituted for smoke detectors where the ambient conditions of a space are not suitable for smoke detectors.
  • Type 4f - Same as above, but direct connection to the Fire Service is not required provided a telephone is installed and freely available at all times to enable '111' calls to be made.
  • Type 5 - A Type 5 alarm system is a variation of a Type 4 alarm system that allows the Type 4 smoke detection in specified firecells to sound a local alarm only, provided that in addition those specified firecells are provided with heat detection that results in the alerting of all building occupants.  Generally used in large apartment complexes.
  • Type 5f - Same as above, but direct connection to the Fire Service is not required provided a telephone is installed and freely available at all times to enable '111' calls to be made.
  • Type 6 - Not provided by Nelson Alarms - An automatic fire sprinkler system with automatic signalling to a remote receiving centre plus a Type 2 manual fire alarm system.
  • Type 7 - Not provided by Nelson Alarms - Same as Type 6, plus a Type 4 smoke detection system.



We use only quality equipment and products, and associate with reliable industry partners. We stand behind all of our products, offering ongoing product support on all fire alarm systems.

We ask that in your consideration of quotations, that you take into account not only price, but also quality of the products, the service being provided, cost of on-going maintenance, servicing, future alterations and the back up guarantees offered to you. Remember, the lowest price is not necessarily the best option, especially in regards to fire alarm systems.

Our price is the total all up price - no hidden extras, no traps, and no surprises.

The construction of your premises can effect the design of the system. As your reasons for wanting a system and requirements vary widely, we prefer to discuss your individual requirements and design a system that suits you.

We offer a no-obligation Free Fire Alarm Assessment - contact us to have a technician come and discuss your requirements.
