Design

Our engineers have a wealth of experience in the design of fire alarm systems and have been fully trained on the latest standards by recognised governing bodies.

To help us choose the right equipment and system for your needs we:

We also keep up with the latest legislation. For instance, did you know that the 2013 version of BS5839 Part – 1 has been withdrawn and replaced by the 2017 version?

This code of practice provides the recommendations which, if followed, would ensure adherence to current good practice. Variations are allowed, but should be justified with sound engineering principles. The new code has substantial new sections on monitoring and integrity, choice of detector type, false alarms and grade of cables. System design should therefore be carried out by a competent person to ensure that the requirements of BS 5839 Part – 1 – 2017 are complied with.

We can design and provide the best system that will conform to all current legislation.

Installation

For a fire alarm system to work correctly, it is important that the installation is carried out by competent engineers to protect you, your building, and its contents.

Our engineers have the capabilities to install a wide range of systems, from a small basic conventional system through to large network systems suitable for all types of business.

At each stage of the installation, care is taken to keep to the original Design Plan and meet the requirements of BS5839-1:2017.

We have access to products and software from most of the UK’s leading and most popular manufacturers, and as an independent company we are not tied to one supplier.

This means that we are able to offer impartial advice and offer the right system to suit your requirements and budget.

Commission

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.

Maintenance

Everyone depends on your fire alarm system functioning properly in the event of a fire.

A fire alarm acts as a warning system to notify inhabitants or employees and enables safe and timely evacuation.

If you are the owner of a non-domestic building in the UK, you have a legal obligation to protect your staff, tenants, and property from fire, and to ensure that this detection system is in good working order and adheres to current regulatory standards.

All fire alarm systems must be serviced in accordance with BS5839-1:2017 at least every 6 months. Regular maintenance is important to ensure that your investment will continue to function correctly and is still fit for purpose.

It will also identify any variations from the standard that may arise from changes that may be made to building layouts or uses. Regular maintenance visits from one of our engineers means our clients have the opportunity to refresh their knowledge of the panel functions if they so wish.

Our experienced engineers at M&G Fire Protection will make servicing your fire alarm panel an effortless process, carrying it out in accordance with BS5839-1 and providing you with a cost effective way to ensure your sounders will activate if needed, giving you peace of mind. We also offer routine bi-annual alarm testing and servicing, as well as an emergency 24-hour response call-out service.
