      Common Questions about Commercial Fire Alarm Maintenance

      How often should fire alarm maintenance be performed?

      It is recommended to have a fire alarm system serviced by a competent provider every 6 months to comply with BS 5839-1. This standard outlines the necessary inspections and tests for fire detection and alarm systems in non-domestic premises.

      Regular servicing ensures that faults are identified, preventive measures are taken to maintain the system’s reliability, false alarms are reduced, and the building’s fire protection stays up-to-date with any changes. Failure to follow the recommended 6-month schedule may result in the system being non-compliant with BS 5839-1 standards.

      What is the British standard for fire alarm maintenance?

      The British standard for fire alarm maintenance is BS 5839-1. This standard outlines the necessary inspections and tests for fire detection and alarm systems in non-domestic premises. It provides recommendations for periodic inspection and testing of the system to ensure its reliability, reduce false alarms, and keep the building’s fire protection up-to-date with any changes. BS 5839-1 is a critical component in maintaining the safety of buildings and ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations.

      How often should a Fire Alarm System be checked?

      According to the UK fire safety regulations, all fire alarm systems in commercial and public buildings must be tested regularly to ensure they are functioning properly. The frequency of these tests depends on the type of building and the fire alarm system in use, but it is generally recommended to test fire alarms once a week and to have a full inspection carried out by a competent fire alarm engineer at least once a year.

      Who is responsible for maintaining a Fire Alarm System?

      As a building owner, manager, or responsible person, you are responsible for maintaining a fire alarm system and ensuring that it is in compliance with local fire codes and regulations. This includes conducting regular fire alarm maintenance and inspections, as well as keeping detailed documentation of all maintenance activities. It is important to work with a competent and accredited fire alarm maintenance provider to ensure that your fire alarm system is functioning properly and provides adequate protection in case of a fire.
