FIRE ALARM MAINTENANCE EXPLAINED:
You have a fire alarm installed at your premises to protect your building and its occupants. Legally, this must be serviced at least once every six months (according to BS 5839-1: 2017)
It is essential that this system functions properly as, in the event of a fire, this acts as an early warning, enabling safe and timely evacuation.
You are legally obliged to ensure that this detection system works and is in line with current regulatory standards. To do this, you must have fire alarm maintenance carried out by a competent person. On top of this, if your competent specialist/maintenance provider recommends replacements or repairs, it is the duty of the responsible person to ensure these works are carried out.
Artius PP is the best choice for your fire alarm maintenance, being a leading BAFE-accredited provider to hundreds of customers across UK.

- Battery condition
- Accuracy of zone plans
- Heat and smoke detectors
- Manual call points and zones

- False alarms requiring investigation
