Fire Safety System Service & Maintenance

A Fire Safety System plays a vital role in protecting a building’s occupants. However, while the correct specification and installation of a system is paramount, ensuring that it is correctly serviced and maintained throughout its life is of equal importance.

For instance, if a Smoke Ventilation system is not working at full efficiency – or in a worst-case scenario breaks down entirely – smoke will not be adequately cleared from the affected area. This poses a significant risk to individuals trying to escape the building, as well as any attending firefighters.

To remove the stress of maintaining your fire safety system, we provide a maintenance service, where our team of experienced experts will regularly check your systems and carry out any work required to keep them to a high standard.

This service will not only meet the required British Standards (BS 7346:1-1990, BS 5588:12-2004, and Approved Document B) which require fire safety systems to be serviced and maintained, but also The Regulatory Reform Order 2005 (RRO), which requires a responsible person to be appointed to make sure that all equipment is kept in good working order.

No matter who originally installed or manufactured the system, the FDS maintenance service will not only ensure that safety is maximised, but also that costs are kept down, by identifying issues before they become expensive problems.

Once on site our experts will carry out an initial visual inspection, followed by an in-depth 15 point test of every fire safety component in the building. If a system component fails at any point we also offer a 24-hour emergency callout service.

Both scheduled and emergency attendances by the FDS maintenance team will be thoroughly documented, providing you with the records you need to ensure that your fire safety systems are correctly maintained.
