BS5839-1:2017 “All MCPs should be fitted with a cover”


Recent updates to the BS5839-1:2017 states in 20.2 b) that “All MCPs should be fitted with a protective cover, which is moved to gain access to the frangible elements.”




All manual call points that are placed in vulnerable areas and are prone to false activation should now be protected, without the need to consult your fire safety officers.




Safety Technology International supply a range of protective covers, from basic integral covers to sounder models; there are variations to suit all applications. The covers are specifically designed to prevent false alarms whether accidental or malicious.



For further information on the British Standard revision, resettable manual call points and protective covers, please contact the Sales Team on +44 (0)1527 520 999 or email sales@sti-emea.com
