Fairfield Batteries & FIA Announcement Reminder

Why Buy Batteries From Fairfield (10)

Here is a helpful reminder of the FIA’s new guidance and the benefits Fairfield offer!

Fairfield (Part of the Celltech Group) is a leading supplier in the UK of batteries and we’re in a unique position being one of the largest independents, meaning we can supply multiple leading battery brands. We like to keep our customers up to date on new guidance announcements as well as reminding you of past ones.

With this in mind, we’d like to remind you of the Fire Industry Associations compliance notification which they sent out last year. It is regarding flame retardant (FR) rated batteries in fire alarm panels, see here. We’re expecting other trade bodies within the UK to follow suit.

The directive outlines essential safety requirements for electrical equipment operating within a specific voltage range. The FIA’s guidance document explains the reasons behind the request and the implications for installers/maintainers. It is crucial that fire professionals and businesses stay up to date with the latest developments in fire safety.

Fairfield are well placed to supply FR rated batteries from four different brands Yuasa NP, Yucel/Yuvolt, Powersonic (for Gent panels) and Casil all kept in stock. We deliver next day free of charge (for orders over £150) direct to sites or engineer’s house. Have a look at our new infographic for a full overview of the benefits we offer.
