Fire alarm maintenance is an essential maintenance routine that is required by law under the fire safety order. Automatic fire detection is commonly used to protect property by ensuring the early attendance of the fire and rescue service, and as a result a regular service, inspection and fault finding of your alarm system is paramount.

It is vital that regular maintenance is carried out to ensure it will operate effectively when required and that any faults with the system will be detected and corrected to ensure operation.

Routine testing of the fire alarm system also provides an opportunity for occupants of the building to become, and remain, familiar with the fire alarm signals that the system produces. Our fire safety technicians are provided with specialist knowledge of fire detection and fire alarm systems, including the knowledge on the causes of false alarms.

The objectives may differ in time or place. Other possible objectives exist, such as protection against business interuption and protection of the environment.

Categories of fire systems

Systems are divided into a number of different categories as follows;

Category M systems; Manual systems and therefore incorporate no automatic fire detectors.

Category L systems; Automatic fire detection systems intended for protection of life. They are further subdivided into;

L1: Systems installed throughout all areas of the building
L2: Sytems only installed in defined parts of the building
L3: Systems designed to give a warning of fire at an early enough stage to enable all occupants, other than possibly those in the room of fire origin.
L4: Sytems installed within those parts of the escape routes comprising circulation areas and circulation spaces, such as corridors and stairways.
L5: Systems in which the protected area(s) and/or the location of detectors is designed to satisfy a specific fire safety objective.
