Fire Alarm Servicing Intervals  

Regular Maintenance is Essential!

Until the arrival of the 2002 revision of BS5839, and the Regulatory Reform (FIRE SAFETY) Order 2005 which took effect in October 2006 the required fire alarm services per year was very clear. It was quarterly (i.e. four times per year) for all Fire alarm systems.

Fire alarm servicing frequency is now determined by the outcome of the Fire Risk Assessment which should have been carried out on all workplaces by October 2006.

As we are BAFE Approved as well as NSI Fire GOLD Recognised, we have a wealth of experience in ascertaining the risks at a premises and understanding the necessity of having a fully working and effective fire alarm.

We are recommending that all premises with sleeping accommodation or where there are 10 or more occupants/people at work or high hazard premises (e.g. flammable liquids or highly combustible materials are stored) require four quarterly maintenance visits. All other premises can have a service at six monthly intervals - of course, subject to an up-to-date Fire Safety Risk Assessment.
