Risk Assessments on premises including alarm systems should now be carried out.

A lack of these was criticised recently in a report by Prison Inspectors on Court Room Cells where... "Serious risks, such as detainees harming themselves or others, [are] not managed"

The same Risk Assessment requirements apply to alarm systems in disabled toilets and other areas in Schools and Colleges.

Here is the Cronapress Check List for you to check your system.

Check- Reason- Pass?
Full Fault Monitored System Many affray and assurance alarms fail new risk assessment criteria as they are not constantly monitored. Ensure the circuit is linked in series with end of line monitoring.

Fast Press Most affray systems that have end of line monitoring are Fire systems derivatives and have a slow reaction time of over 250ms to 1000ms to overcome nuisance contacts. This is not fit for purpose. Our contact capture time is approximately 10ms and captures the activation. Note 1  
Press not Release to activate Occasionally alarms systems require a press and release to activate. Again this is not acceptable as the strip is unusable if an object is used to keep the strip contact closed.  
Visual Communication If the section to be used can be avoided as visual aids (Not Lit) confirm the area is without affray facilities then risks can be avoided.

Robustness In general the weakest link to an affray strip will be the end cap where often the wall mountings are compromised. If the cap is loose or weak issues can arise.
