On completion of the system installation, the system is commissioned and a formal handover takes place, including the presentation of all relevant certificates and instructions on the use of the panel.
Commissioning a fire alarm system is not simply turning it on and setting detector addresses – it means going through a comprehensive step-by-step checklist to ensure compliance with the British Standard, as well as undergoing a series of tests to ensure reliable and trouble-free operation.
All fire alarms installed by M&G Fire Protection are commissioned strictly in accordance with BS5839-1:2017 and manufacturers recommendations. The commissioning procedure ensures all equipment works correctly and that the installation meets the design criteria. Upon completion of the commissioning a BS5839 commissioning certificate will be issued which should be retained by the building user.
If your fire alarm has been installed by a non-fire specialist we may still be able to commission and certificate your system. Please get in touch with our friendly team for further details.
