Fire Alarm Installation and Maintenance
Not only can we design, install and commission fire alarm detection systems to any required categories within properties, we also carry out planned weekly, quarterly, 6 monthly and annual maintenance visits to ensure all systems fully comply with BS 5839.
Upon undertaking any new works or planned maintenance visits we will provide the associated and relevant certification required.
In the Government guide books on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it strongly recommends that a fire alarm detection system should be maintained to BS5839-1 or 6 and also that it should have maintenance visits as a minimum of every six months or more frequently if the site is classed as a high risk property.
A maintenance contract is required for any property which has a fire alarm detection system present, as without this the system does not fully comply with the British Standards.
Planned maintenance visits include testing and ensuring the operation of any early warning devices (smoke detectors, heat detectors, smoke beams etc.) and manual call points.
All sirens/bells will be checked for satisfactory operation. In addition, the internal components of the fire panel will be checked for any signs of deterioration and the back-up battery checked for sign of corrosion/date of expiry.
If any parts of the system are found to be defective, it will be reported to the client with our recordings/recommendations and further instruction will be sought.
