Fire Alarm Servicing and Testing
It is essential that regular maintenance inspections are carried out to ensure that there has not been a major failure of any of the fire detection or fire alarm equipment that may otherwise go unnoticed.
The period between visits to undertake inspection and service should be based upon risk assessments together with regulatory requirements.
BS 5839 advises that your fire alarm system should be inspected by a professional at least every six months. For larger premises and more complex systems, three monthly inspections are the recommendation.
AJS holds the appropriate accreditations to undertake this work including BAFE SP203-1 Fire Detection and Alarm Systems. This offers our clients the peace of mind that their buildings are compliant and protected.
Systems & Compliance
We provide maintenance and testing services for the following system types:
- Conventional System
- Analogue Addressable Systems
- Wireless Systems
- Voice Alarm Systems
All systems we design, install and maintain will meet the statutory British Standards relating to fire alarms in non-domestic premises for design installation and maintenance of systems in dwellings.
Testing fire extinguishers annually is essential to make sure they work when you need them, and to ensure they conform to British Standards.
Our test will include internal and external inspection of all working parts and triggering mechanisms, checking for any corrosion and ensuring they are properly pressurised and conform to current British Standards.
In the event of a small fire, a fire blanket or fire extinguishers using water, CO2, foam, powder or wet chemical are usually the first line of defence for most businesses and will successfully extinguish the fire in over 80% of instances.
Our engineers are appropriately trained and accredited to keep your extinguishers working and to maintain your compliance.
They have the expertise and experience to provide you with the best possible service and advice when designing your maintenance package.
AJS design, install and service complete sprinkler systems to new and existing buildings in accordance with the relevant requirements of British Standards. These include:
- Wet and dry sprinkler systems.
- Commercial Sprinklers (BS 12845:2015)
- Domestic & Residential Sprinklers (BS 9251:2014)
- Pre-action fire sprinkler systems.
- Deluge fire sprinkler systems.
- Fire pumps and water storage tanks.
- Fire hydrants and hose reels.
We have a dedicated fire safety team which oversees all sprinkler system servicing and maintenance. We will provide a tailored service to you based on your systems, building and its use, to ensure your fire protection systems remain fully compliant with current regulations.
The methods we use for servicing and testing these systems comply with the relevant requirements of British Standards and BAFSA recommendations which can include weekly, monthly and quarterly checks alongside six and 12 month tests.
During the test we visually inspect all components of the entire system from roof to ground level together with a connection made to a pressurised water supply at the inlet.
Gas Fire Suppression Systems
Many of our clients have specialist environments such as IT data and server rooms where they require a fire suppression solution that will minimise damage to critical equipment.
AJS installs and maintains all the main Gas Suppression Systems that extinguish fires by releasing a concentration of gas which removes the oxygen in the room and kills the fire. These include Inert Systems, CO2 and Water Mist Systems.
All installation and maintenance offers our clients’ full compliance and certification to BAFE SP203.
Our experienced engineers will offer you impartial advice on the different systems available and the most suitable maintenance packages to protect your business and your data in the event of a fire.
Room Integrity Testing
Room Integrity Testing is a requirement required for any Gas Suppression Installation to check the pressure within the room will ensure the effectiveness of the Gaseous Extinguishing System.
It is a requirement of British Standards (ISO14520 / BS EN15004) that a room integrity test is completed on initial installation with subsequent testing annually at a minimum.
Our skilled and experienced engineers will conduct the tests to the required standards and certify once passed. If the installation fails, we will provide a full report and undertake any required remedial works to give our clients peace of mind that their critical enclosures are protected.
