Commercial Categories - Part 1

L1 Fire Alarm Systems cover the whole of the property. All areas are covered by automatic fire detection and call points. 

L2 Fire Alarm Systems are a combination of L3 & L5. Therefore, all escape routes and adjacent rooms with openings to the escape route have automatic fire detection. This includes high-risk areas, for example kitchens, boiler rooms etc.

L3 Fire Alarm Systems provide automatic fire detection throughout all escape routes and all adjacent room that lead to escape routes.

L4 Fire Alarm Systems have automatic fire detection on the escape routes only.

L5 Fire Alarm Systems are used for special circumstances. They would be used in  a specific area of the building that required automatic fire detection, usually it being a high risk area.  

P Fire Alarm Systems are designed for the protection of the building only. They would mainly consist of smoke automatic fire detectors but no call points. These systems will always be monitored. 

M Fire Alarm System is the lowest grade available. It consists of manual call points in the building, therefore will need to be activated for the alarm system to sound. 

Domestic Categories - Part 6

LD1 – covers the whole of the domestic property. This includes all circulation routes (stairwells & corridors) which form part of the escape route or any rooms where a fire might start. This does not include bathrooms, showers and toilets. 

LD2 – has automatic fire detection in the circulation areas (stairwells & corridors) which form part of the escape route. High risk areas of the property are also covered, such as kitchens. 

LD3 – This will have automatic smoke detection in the circulation areas of the property (stairwell and corridors) which form part of the escape route. 

In domestic properties the fire alarm system will also have a grade of system. These are explained below:

Grade A & C Fire Alarm systems for domestic properties are required in larger domestic properties and HMO’s. This grade of fire alarm system is very close to the requirement of Part 1 with some minor variations.
