Fire Alarm Maintenance
Why do you need Fire Alarm testing & Fire Alarm Maintenance?
Fire alarms are designed to save lives; Periodic fire alarm testing and fire alarm maintenance is essential to ensure that the system is in good working order and ready to react in the event of a disaster!
Typical problems include smoke detectors becoming less sensitive over time and standby batteries in control panels weakening. Regular checks will detect these issues, whilst periodic testing is a requirement for a local authority fire certificate.
Is it essential?
Fire Alarm testing and fire alarm maintenance is essential to ensure that the system is in full working order and is a requirement under BS5839 Part 1 2002. All systems must be fully operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Fire Alarm testing should occur quarterly for systems with lead acid batteries otherwise 6 monthly (periodic) and annually. A more frequent service schedule may be put in place if the responsible person or service engineer feel that it is required.
Fire Alarm Maintenance is just as important as installing them in the first place and is a legal requirement.
