Fire Alarm System Maintenance

If your system failed, how would know?

Your fire alarm system is designed to protect you, your people, and your property. Everyone depends on it to work properly in order to warn them of danger and make a safe escape.

Fire alarm system maintenance is essential to prolong the life of the system and discover any faults that may occur. A system that is not maintained cannot be guaranteed to protect life and property.

You have a legal obligation to ensure your system is in good working order and adheres to current regulatory standards and TIS are here to help.

Fire Safety Legal Requirements

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order section 17, states that fire alarm systems should be subject to suitable maintenance and maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order, and in good repair.

The consequence of poor fire alarm maintenance is that fire detection system operation checks and the inspection of equipment such as call points, detection devices, and sounders that should have been completed would not have been done. This places responsible individuals and company directors in breach of the Fire Safety Order 2005.

By failing to invest in fire safety maintenance, your business will not only be non-compliant but also susceptible to faults and defects within the system and other equipment such as control panels, manual call points, fire detectors, sensors, and fire extinguishers.

Should a fire break out without the proper policies and procedures in place, those responsible for not having executed fire safety regulations in accordance with legislation face prosecution and fines.

British Standards BS5839-1 recommends that a fire alarm system should be inspected by a competent person at least every six months.

Do I need a maintenance company?

No-one benefits from false fire alarms that activate due to a fault or another unwanted false trigger. And failing to prepare for a real-life fire is not only illegal but also irresponsible.

Fire alarm maintenance companies help you to comply with legal obligations and protect what matters. They conduct regular inspection services so you can rest easy knowing your alarm systems have been inspected and certified as functioning correctly.

To help you choose the right maintenance company, check for Third-Party Certification schemes. These accreditation schemes ensure the company is fully trained and competent in the services they are providing. TIS is independently certified by a UKAS accredited third-party certification body under the BAFE SP201 scheme and all work is audited in line with the scheme.
