Repair and Maintenance
Our services include preventive and corrective maintenance, emergency call outs, a dedicated 24/7-support centre. For your convenience, we can tailor a service package suited to your business circumstances and requirements. An added benefit to our customers is our ability to service a wide variety of fire systems while we ourselves remain brand agnostic, meaning we will recommend the products most suitable based on your needs, not by the brand alliance.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing. However, it is essential to understand that visual examination is an essential part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect can't be detected by testing alone.
BS9990 and your business
We offer regular inspection and servicing to ensure that if there is a fire, the fire and rescue services have all they need in good working condition. This is a legal requirement as per BS9990.
Approved Document B (Fire Safety) of the Building Regulations (England & Wales) requires that any building more than 18m high, measured from the fire brigade access level to the top floor, or which has floors more than 10m below ground must be provided with ‘fire fighting shafts’ and a fire fighting rising main. If the building has a floor level higher than 18m but less than 50m or has floors more than 10m below ground, the fire main can be either a Dry or a Wet riser. When a building is more than 50m high the rising main has to be a Wet riser. In Scotland, the Technical Handbooks of Scottish Building Standards contain similar requirements.
