The Requirements for installing a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a school will vary dependent upon the type and size. Small schools may only require a manual system, whereas a larger school will benefit from having automatic fire detection installed. Arson in schools may be a problem requiring detectors in critical and high value areas. In schools where evening classes are held and therefore only partially occupied additional detection may be required. Schools are also quite diverse in their occupancy and therefore the fire detector should suit the environment, a normal classroom being quite different to a physics laboratory or a craft workshop. During unoccupied periods a different set of rules may apply when the detection system may need to be at its most sensitive. Disruption to the school day as a result of unwanted alarms can be critical, especially during examinations and so the reliability factor is extremely important when selecting a suitable system.
