Fire alarms in the UK are typically designed to the BS 5839 series of documents. However, there are a range of type of system available and different options for the extent (L1, L2, M, P1, P2) of detection, category of smoke detection (optical, heat, beam, aspirating) and types of alarm (sounders or voice alarm).
