One critical part of A.J. Building Services (NW) Ltd is to ensure the correct maintenance of any automatic fire detection fitted within your building complies to The British Standards (BS5839-1:2002 ). Under the changes to BS5839-1:2002, on appointment, the service company now has to carry out an initial inspection of the system to ascertain it’s condition and report on any major areas of non-compliance within the code.
System inspection will cover the following areas:
1. Number of call points.
2. Provision of fire detection.
3. Sound pressure levels.
4. Standby power supplies.
5. Fire resistance of cabling.
6. Fault monitoring of circuits.
7. Standards of electrical safety.
8. Incidence of false and unwanted alarms
9. Changes in use, layout or construction
of the protected area that may impact on the effectiveness of the system.
