When choosing a fire safety solution, cost should not be the top consideration, warns Lee James of Morley-IAS by Honeywell.

The following is an extract from an article written by Morley-IAS UK Product Manager, published in this month's FMX.

"It seems that cost is still king when choosing a fire safety solution. A recent survey of leading systems providers undertaken on behalf of Morley-IAS found that price is maintaining its dominance over other product attributes, such as independent product approvals, supplier endorsement or the right choice of protocol, as hard-pressed end users shop around for the best deal.

However, this is a risky strategy. Failure to adopt such third-party endorsement, for example, runs the risk of a lack of protection for the building operator or ‘responsible person' in the event of an incident occurring as a result of poor installation or maintenance."
