The Practical Guide to Grade D Fire Alarm Systems was written to support the electrician as they seek to understand their roles and responsibilities when designing, installing, commissioning, and maintaining Grade D fire detection and fire alarm systems.

It is a practical guide for ensuring that Grade D1/D2 fire detection and fire alarm systems are suitably designed, installed, commissioned and maintained.

Providing guidance for the working electrician on

  • fire risk assessment
  • selecting appropriate grade/ category of system
  • maintenance and servicing
  • situations requiring a logbook

The book gives the reader a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities, whether that be as a contractor, designer, landlord or housing manager, and provides a suitable context in which all such work should be carried out. The book is written in a clear and concise style and covers all aspects relating to competence, fire risk assessment, design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance.

The idea for the book grew out of a need for the industry to demonstrate competence in light of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The Hackitt Report rightly highlighted the concern that industry had a ‘race to the bottom’ mentality and had lost sight of the principle that people should not only feel safe in their own homes but to actually be safe.
