Fire alarm testing should be undertaken in two parts: non-maintenance testing by the user and UKAS accredited, third-party certified maintenance and servicing by professionals. Here are what those two elements should cover and how often they should be carried out. Fire alarms are an essential part of any commercial or public building, and it is crucial that they are regularly tested to ensure they are in good working order. User testing should be carried out weekly and should include checking that all alarms are in place and operational, as well as testing the manual call point and sounding the alarm to check that it is loud enough to be heard throughout the building. UKAS accredited, third-party certified maintenance and servicing should be carried out at least once a year, and should include a full test of the alarm system, as well as a visual inspection of all components. Fire alarm testing is a vital part of fire safety, and by ensuring that it is carried out regularly, you can help to protect your property and occupants from the dangers of fire.

Fire Alarm Testing in Swansea

Fire alarms are a critical part of any fire safety strategy. In the event of a fire, they provide an early warning that can give people the time they need to evacuate safely. Fire alarm systems must be regularly inspected and tested to ensure that they are in good working order. BS 5839 recommends that fire alarm systems be inspected at least every six months by a competent person, such as a specialist fire safety company. This professional testing will cover factors including, but not limited to: logbook inspection, visual call point inspections, visual inspection of detectors and other devices, and inspection of any building changes (layout, alterations). Changes to use or occupancy levels can also affect the required frequency of inspection. 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. Fire alarm systems play a vital role in keeping people safe, so it is important to ensure that they are properly maintained.

In order to ensure that your fire alarm system is up to code and meets all the regulations set out by the government and relevant industry bodies, you will need to use specialist fire alarm services from a professional organisation. Fire alarm systems can save lives by alerting people to a fire at the earliest possible moment, and can also save businesses time and money by reducing false alarms and unnecessary downtime.

Aspirating fire and smoke detection systems Swansea

Aspirating smoke detectors are a type of smoke detection system that work by drawing in air from across a building and testing it for the presence of smoke particles. The system consists of a central detection unit with one or more sampling chambers, which are connected to a network of pipes. The pipes draw in air from selected points throughout the building, and the air is constantly being tested in the detection unit. If smoke is detected, the alarm is raised as the system can be integrated with fire control panels. Aspirating smoke detectors are more sensitive than traditional smoke detectors and can be programmed to suit the environment, making them an ideal choice for smoke detection in commercial and industrial buildings.
