Fire Alarm Service

Our alarm technicians do a thorough check and any faults will be reported to client and rectified immediately.

What is a fire alarm service?

Our alarm technicians will do a thorough check on smoked devices/ beam detectors /door closures/ link into intruder /gas shut off supply, in simple terms, whatever is linked to your fire alarm system – and I mean whatever – and we see how the devices respond under test conditions as if it was a real life event. Any faults will be reported to client and rectified immediately.

This test is a bi-annual test in line with British Standard BS 5839-1.

A full report is handed to the client, log books are completed and a certificate is issued once fire alarm is in good working order.

We make sure that your system is up and running.

The chart below indicates why it is important to have your systems checked twice-yearly.
