Fire alarms: Maintenance

  • Fire alarms: Maintenance


In the event of a fire, everyone relies on your fire alarm system to perform effectively, as it serves as a warning system to notify residents or employees and allows for safe and quick evacuation. If you own a non-domestic building in the UK, you have a legal obligation to protect your employees, tenants, and property from fire, as well as to keep this detection system in good working order and adheres to current regulatory standards.

According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, you must ensure that your fire alarm is subject to an appropriate maintenance scheme, is in an efficient state and order, and in a state of good repair.

Every 6 months, all fire alarm systems must be serviced in compliance with BS5839-1:2017. Regular maintenance is essential to guarantee that your investment continues to perform properly and is fit for purpose. It will also identify any deviations from the norm that may occur as a result of changes to building layouts or uses. Maintenance visits from one of our technicians on a regular basis mean our clients have the opportunity to refresh their knowledge of the panel functions if they so wish.
