Fire Alarm Servicing and Maintenance

To comply with Health and Safety Regulations it is most important to ensure your fire alarm equipment is regularly serviced. It is a requirement to do so to meet British Standards. Failure can, in effect, give your insurance company a good reason not to pay in the event you have to make a claim.

All fire systems are maintained to BS 5839. Remember, as a condition of meeting BS 5839 Part 1, the period between successive inspection and servicing should not exceed six months. If this recommendation is not implemented, it should be considered that the system is no longer compliant with this part of BS 5839. This is in addition to duties required by the system user.

Our Engineers can provide a full maintenance program or the basic minimum which is one annual and one bi-annual test, and inspection by qualified Fire Alarm Engineers each year.

Fire Alarm Testing and Maintenance (BS5839: Part 1:2017)

The following information lists the testing and maintenance schedule that is required.

Daily Inspection (to be carried out by user) - Check that the power LED is lit on your fire panel and there are no faults showing. Inform the designated, responsible person if any fault is found.

Weekly Test (to be carried out by user or Cook Fire & Security, if requested) - Operate a call point to test the system. Check that all sounders and relays (i.e.Door release/shutters/monitoring signals) are fully operational. Reset the fire alarm panel. Each week, choose a different zone, so that way all call points are tested in rotation, ensuring that all call points are tested at least once within a one-month period. Check all call points and detectors and ensure that none are obstructed in any way. Enter results of tests into logbook.

Quarterly/Bi-Annual Test (to be carried out by Cook Fire & Security) - Check all previous logbook entries and clarify that any remedial action has been taken. Check the battery readings. Operate all call points in each zone to test the fire alarm and operate automatic detection in rotation. Remove mains supply and check that the battery capacity is compliant with BS 5839 Standards for standby periods.

Annual Test (to be carried out by Cook Fire & Security) - Carry out tests as detailed above. Additionally test all detectors and call points and check for operation.

Every 4 years (to be carried out by Cook Fire & Security) - Replace sealed lead acid batteries as per BS 5839 requirements.

We also offer Emergency Light installation and maintenance.
