Alarms Suitable for Listed Buildings

What is listed building status?

In the United Kingdom there are 3 categories of listed building and there are different rules and laws that govern what can and cannot be done to them. This will obviously impact on the installation of a fire and security system as some of the legislation makes it difficult for a normal installation to be carried out.

Currently 2% of the building stock within England has listed building status and many of these are places of worship. In total nearly 50% of the listed buildings were buildings such as Churches or Cathedrals.

Experienced Installers

The challenges of securing a listed building are many but at Ace Fire and Security we have experience of dealing with some of the most important buildings in the UK such as securing Westminster Cathedral. With the use of the latest technology we can install wireless systems that meet certain insurance criteria without damaging the property by installing wires throughout the property.

If you are responsible for securing a building with listed status then you can speak to ACE Fire and Security today to see how we can provide a security solution that does not impinge on the buildings historical structure.

The categories of listed building

The three types of listed building in England and Wales are;

  • Grade 1: buildings that are deemed to be of exceptional interest
  • Grade 2: These buildings are particularly important to more than those who have a special interest
  • Grade 3: these buildings are of very special interest and every effort should be made to preserve them as they are for future generations to enjoy

In Northern Ireland and Scotland the legislation is different but there are 3 types just like England. Northern ireland has categories for Grade A, Grade B+ and Grade B1. While Scotland has Grade A, Grade B and Grade C.
