BS 5839-6:2019, All the information you need, in your pocket!

With the recent changes to BS 5839-6:2019, Aico have recently produced all the information you need into a pocket-sized guide. Aico’s customers required all the information of these changes in a simple format that they can have to hand at any point throughout the day. 

To support these changes, Aico have designed a ‘Z-Card’ which is a pocket-sized folded leaflet containing ‘what you need to know about the latest revisions’ to BS 5839-6:2019. 

British Standard BS 5839-6:2019 covers specific recommendations for fire alarm systems in all domestic premises and covers both new-build and existing properties. The standard contains a large amount of detail on all aspects relating to the design and installation of fire alarm systems, but one area of it covers the type of alarm to install and the areas of the property to protect. 

Jo White, Marketing Manager, Aico “Within the Marketing Team, we are always looking for innovative ways to provide our customers with information in an exciting and modern format, the Z-Card is a fantastic way of sharing best practice and is easy to transport and refer to.” 

To further support customers with the changes, Aico have updated their counter mat, this is normally placed on the trade counters of Wholesalers. The counter mat has a picture of a house with alarms in situ, providing the information about where to site alarms conforming to the changes in Table 1.

If you would like further information on the BS 5839-6:2019 updates, please visit: www.aico.co.uk/technical-support/standards-regulations/#navigation, or email the Marketing Team marketing@aico.co.uk to order your free Z-Card.
