Fire Alarms Cardiff

Call 029 2086 7222 Today
Fire alarm testing is essential to ensure that your system is functioning correctly and will activate in the event of a fire. There are two main types of testing that should be carried out: non-maintenance testing by the user, and UKAS accredited, third-party certified maintenance and servicing by professionals. User tests should be carried out weekly and should include checking that all alarm call points are clear, testing the visual indicators, and sounding the alarms to ensure they are loud enough to be heard throughout the building. Maintenance tests should be carried out every six months by a qualified engineer, and should include a full system check, functional test, and sensitivity test. By carrying out both types of testing on a regular basis, you can be confident that your fire alarm system is up to date and compliant with Fire Regulations.

Fire Alarm Testing in Cardiff

Fire alarms are an essential part of any fire safety system, and it is important that they are regularly inspected to ensure that they are functioning properly. BS 5839 recommends that fire alarm systems be inspected at least every six months by a 'competent person', usually a specialist fire safety company such as City Fire Protection. This professional testing will cover factors including, but not limited to: logbook inspection, visual call point inspections, visual inspection of detectors and other devices, inspection of any building changes (layout, alterations), and changes to use or occupancy levels. Failure to meet the six-month inspection quota means that your system will not be deemed compliant with British Standards, something which could cause issues if you are tasked with proving that your building meets required fire safety regulations. Therefore, it is essential that you ensure that your fire alarm system is regularly inspected by a competent person in order to maintain compliance with BS 5839.

Fire Alarm Installation & Maintenance Cardiff

Fire alarms are critical for ensuring the safety of any building and its occupants. In order to ensure your building has a fire alarm which meets the regulations set out by the government and the relevant industry bodies, you will need specialist fire alarm services from a professional organisation. This can help to save lives since a fully operational system will alert people to a fire at the earliest possible moment. Professional installation, along with regular fire alarm maintenance and inspection can also save you time and money, since it will mean fewer false alarms occur, thereby reducing unnecessary downtime for your business. Fire alarms are an essential part of any business's safety plan, and working with a professional fire alarm company is the best way to ensure that your building is protected.

Aspirating fire and smoke detection systems Cardiff

An aspirating smoke detector is a smoke detection system that draws in air from across a building and tests it for the presence of smoke particles. The system constantly monitors the air for smoke, and if any is detected, the alarm is raised. This can be a critical early warning for a fire, as it allows the building's fire control panel to be activated. Aspirating smoke detectors are particularly suited to larger buildings, where smoke might not be immediately visible but could still pose a serious threat. By constantly monitoring the air, these systems can help to ensure the safety of a building and its occupants.
