Manual Call Points

Manual Call Points
Fire Detection in UK

Manual call points, often referred to as MCPs or manual pull stations, are devices designed for manual activation of fire alarm systems. They are typically found on walls in buildings and are equipped with a glass or plastic break-glass cover.

Manual call points are crucial for initiating a rapid response to fire incidents and ensuring the safety of building occupants.

How Do Manual Call Points Work?

In case of a fire or emergency, a person can break the glass or lift the cover to access a manual pull lever. When the lever is pulled, it triggers the fire alarm system, activating audible and visual alarms to alert occupants of the building and notify the authorities of the emergency.
