Fire Alarm Testing
Why do I need to carry it out?
As part of our package of electrical compliance services, we provide the highest quality of fire alarm testing with national coverage throughout the UK. Fire alarm systems save lives and it is crucial that they are tested properly and regularly by a company that is suitably qualified to do so.
BS 58839 states that fire alarm systems must be subject to regular maintenance by a competent person. This should be carried out at a minimum interval of six months to make sure your alarm system is always fit for purpose.
A weekly test should also be carried out involving activation of a ‘break glass’ unit. This is best conducted by a responsible person within the building and we can provide all the assistance and advice you need to ensure that this process is carried out accurately. The results of these tests must be recorded in the fire alarm log book, and should you not already have one of these, IQ Electrical can supply you with one.
These key routines are put in place completely for your safety, so following them consistently is of the utmost importance.
What we do:
We will test your fire alarms thoroughly in line with BS 5839 to ensure that you are meeting your statutory requirements and that your system functions as it should. We will come out to you as a one off or whenever your fire alarm testing is due and we’re always happy to discuss any queries you may have regarding the maintenance of your fire alarm systems.
As experienced, NICEIC approved contractors, you can trust us to carry out your fire alarm testing efficiently and professionally and to supply you with compliant documentation.
