Make sure your fire system works as it should
Regular fire system maintenance is crucial to ensure the reliability of your fire safety system, extending its useful life. We ensure that your fire system works as it should.
If you aren’t conducting regular fire system maintenance in your building, you can not be confident that it will be reliable in the event of an emergency.
Fire systems, like any other equipment, can degrade over time. Factors such as dirt, dust, or damage can impact their performance. Structural changes within your building such as debris, vibrations, or accidents, can also impact your fire alarms functionality.
Temperature, humidity, and voltage fluctuations are additional factors that can affect the performance of your fire system. This can potentially lead to false alarms or inadequate response. The older your system, the more maintenance it is likely to need to ensure their continued reliability.
Investing in maintenance not only helps maintain compliance with regulatory requirements but also enhances the overall safety and effectiveness of your fire system. It provides you with the peace of mind that your system is prepared to respond appropriately in case of an emergency.
Fire system maintenance
A regular fire system maintenance programme will help to keep your fire safety system in reliable working condition and extend its useful life. Your routine maintenance should include daily checks and a record of any faults and failures. An action plan should also be in place to address and rectify these issues if or when they arise.
To ensure the effectiveness of your fire system, at least one detector should be tested each week. If your premises have multiple zones, it is recommended to test one detector in each zone. Automatic release of fire doors should also be tested on a weekly basis.
Quarterly tests should include batteries, connections, alarm functions, indicators, and audible alarms. If any damage or failures are discovered within these tests, then repairs and replacements will be needed.
Every year, a competent person should review your system to ensure that all components are operating properly. This review serves as a valuable check to detect any damage or failures that might need repairs or replacements.
By sticking to a maintenance schedule and addressing any identified issues, we can help you maintain the reliability and functionality of your fire safety system. This not only ensures that you comply with regulations, but also gives you peace of mind that your system will respond effectively in emergencies.
