Fire Alarm Maintenance and Servicing
Means of raising the alarm in the event of fire are an essential part of any workplace or property. Fire alarms allow people in a building to be notified immediately if there are any dangers from fire and they need to take appropriate actions and vacate the premises. This can only happen if the fire alarms in place are in good working order, and work on demand in pressured situations such as the event of a fire. It is no use having fire alarms that do not work, have not been tested, or are faulty due to a lack of maintenance. At Gemini Fire & Electrical we offer fire alarm testing and servicing in accordance with BS 5839 to keep your employees or workers safe so they can go about their day without any safety fears.
Fire alarm maintenance and tests are required under the Regulatory reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to ensure your fire alarm system remains in full working order in accordance with BS 5839. Fire alarm inspections should include ensuring the standby battery within the fire alarm panel is in full working order, all detectors and call points activate when required and sounders emit the correct level of audibility throughout the building, keeping everyone in the building safe through regular fire alarm checks and drills.
Fire Alarm Monitoring
Alongside the weekly fire alarm tests that are usually carried out by the responsible person it is recommended that a full fire alarm service is conducted at intervals not greater than 6 months. This maintenance test should be carried out by a competent person to ensure it is done safely and correctly so no issues are uncovered later down the line, when you need reliability the most .
Our fire alarm technicians use specialised equipment to activate both heat and smoke detectors easily without the risk of contamination to the system. Our teams are equipped with a wide range of test equipment to ensure we can service any fire alarm system.
Regular maintenance will reduce false alarms from the system, you and your employees will know when you really have to respond to a safety alert from the fire alarm. A faulty alarm system can mean employees become complacent when they hear a fire alarm so it’s essential that your alarms work properly so that your employees know when to respond to a true safety alert.
Is Fire Alarm Testing a Legal Requirement
Appropriate means of raising the alarm in the event of fire is required to be fitted in every business across the UK. Fire alarms don’t just have to be fitted, but they have to be tested and maintained properly to comply with regulations. As well as committing to six monthly inspections (at a minimum), you are legally required to carry out weekly fire alarm tests, keeping your employees safe at all times.
