Fire Alarm Maintenance 

Whether you require a new installation, modification of an existing installation, maintenance of an existing installation or just some general advice. Our BAFE qualified engineers are on hand to help you through the entire process. We currently maintain a wide range of systems from manual standalone conventional systems to fully networked addressable automated systems.

Our engineers provide a 24hr a day, 365 days a year callout rota nationwide and work strictly in accordance with BS5839:Part 1 2013.

Fire alarm maintenance is critical. To comply with British Standard regulation, a fire alarm must be serviced at least twice each year, though we often visit our clients once every quarter. It’s worth understanding exactly what is involved in a fire alarm maintenance visit, so here is a brief look at how we service your fire alarm system.

If replacement parts are needed for your fire alarm to keep it working to optimum levels, we advise this is done straight away. In the longer term this is more cost effective than paying for call outs to a malfunctioning system, or fire brigade costs to attend false alarms. It also reduces the risk of your system not operating as it should if there was a fire to break out on your premises.

It’s important to keep up to date with your fire alarm maintenance and servicing, reason being two fold. Firstly, by keeping your alarm maintained, you are reducing the risk of false alarms. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, you are ensuring that in the event of a fire the alarm will activate and alert occupants properly. The BS 5938 recommends that a fire alarm system be inspected by a competent person at least every 6 months and the government also recommends abiding by this standard.

First Intervention Training Fire Training and Assessment Fire Alarm System

The expected lifespan of your fire alarm system is around 10-15 years. During this period, it’s important to keep your system maintained, up to date and compliant with legislation. After this period, we would recommend upgrading your fire alarm system to ensure your people and property are protected. Our fully qualified engineers will advise you exactly when a new fire alarm system upgrade is required and how best to go about its installation.

What is the best kind of fire alarm?

It depends on your workplace setup or whether you’re talking about an industrial site or facility. There are many different kinds to consider from simple break glass units that you’ll be familiar with to alarms which calculate dangerous rises in heat, sudden bursts of flame or the quantity on carbon monoxide in the air.

Our team of expect engineers are ready to advise you on the best option for your needs and can visit site nationally to provide a full assessment of potential risks and create a safety plan to suit your needs.
