Fire alarm Servicing Essex and London – Your legal requirements
According to the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005, it is a legal requirement that commercial establishments must be equipped with appropriate and functional fire alarms and fire detectors.
Additionally, you must regularly service your fire detection system to comply with the British Standards for fire detection and fire alarm systems in non-domestic buildings and property, BS 5839. British Standard recommends having routine testing every six months with a qualified and certified provider.
Commercial establishments should also display a fire alarm zone plan in the building to support local fire services. Our experts at IQ Fire Solutions can help you comply with the legal requirements of the Fire Safety Order.
All Types of Fire Alarms Covered in our Fire Alarm Service in and Around London
We are expert engineers familiar with the three main types of fire alarm systems in commercial premises:
- Conventional fire alarm servicing
- Addressable fire alarm servicing
- Wireless fire alarm servicing
Our trained engineers are qualified to support commercial premises with either of these alarm systems. Unsure which alarm system you have or which would be more relevant for your building?
Here’s a brief overview of fire alarm servicing per system type:
Conventional Fire Alarm Servicing
This is typically found in small and low-risk commercial sites. Your premises are divided by the fire alarm system into broad zones with no requirements for specific area identification.
Our team can ensure functions and connections in each fire alarm area during inspection and fire alarm testing. We can also help address fire alarm panel confusion and damage.
Addressable Fire Alarm Servicing
This type of fire alarm system is best suited for large and high risk environments, such as hospitals, schools, and care homes. Individual fire alarm systems have their unique electronic address, which is tested and verified during the inspection and maintenance service. We also ensure that when a fire alarm activates, it becomes immediately visible and identifiable on the fire alarm panel.
Wireless Fire Alarm Servicing
This type of system is preferred for premises that can’t use a lot of wiring and cabling due to their nature, such as historic buildings. It works in a similar way to the addressable fire alarm system, relying on a secure wireless link to connect the sensors and the alarm panel. Our maintenance panel will test and inspect the wireless connections and ensure they activate the appropriate response on the panel.
Schedule Fire Alarm Maintenance in Essex and London
As mentioned, professionals must test and inspect your fire alarm systems regularly. We also recommend running weekly testing to ensure the alarm panel, sounders, and sensors operate as they should. Please ensure that the fire brigade is notified of your test period before and after completion to reduce the risk of false emergency responses. In the event of problems with the fire alarm system, we advise you to get in touch with our team as soon as possible for rapid diagnosis and repair.
Arranging for professional, periodic inspection is a non-negotiable risk assessment duty in each commercial building. We can work closely with your team to arrange timely and regular maintenance appointments on your site.
