Fire Alarm Testing

Fire Alarm Testing

Have you got a commercial property that needs to have the fire alarms tested? Testing can be done in very little time and is often quite noisy, so we understand the importance of doing it at a time that suits you.

Fire Alarm testing is the inspection of all the components of a fire alarm installation. It is recommended that your system is checked every 6 months (in accordance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005).

Most fire alarms essentially operated in the same way and when they detect either smoke or heat, the alarm is sounded. Sometimes someone may have to break the glass unit to set off the alarm. When we come to test your alarm we will be looking at various factors such as:

  • Break Glass call points
  • Bell sounders
  • Smoke alarms
  • Heat detectors
  • Fire Extinguishers

At Black Sheep Electrical we can offer professional advice about your installation, safety, and testing of your fire alarms.

It is vital for a regular test to be carried out to ensure no failures have occurred and that it can successfully detect a fire and sound the alarm.
