Fire Maintenance

Every quality conscientious organisation wants to do everything they can to ensure the smooth and safe running of their day to day activities. When it comes to fire safety, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes it a legal obligation to ensure that fire equipment is installed and maintained to a set quality standard.

For fire prevention and protection systems to work reliably 24/7 they must be regularly maintained by properly qualified technicians, and the regulations make this ongoing maintenance of equipment a legal necessity! Whilst using in-house maintenance resources might be able to attend to some of these issues, can you take the risk of using non specialised staff to deal with specialised equipment and standards?

Fire Alarm System

British Standard BS5839-1:2013, states that the fire alarm should be serviced by a competent person at least every 6 months. However, this number of service visits, can increase according to the potential fire risk of the premises. This is usually determined by carrying out a fire risk assessment. Our assessor would evaluate the risk and make a recommendation based on your working practices and the current fire protection within the building.

Our engineers have the most up to date knowledge of the fire regulations and training ensuring that their personal workmanship is both of the highest standard and meets or exceeds the regulatory requirement. By using DRAM you can have complete peace of mind that your investment in fire protection systems is fully compliant with the regulations and giving your staff a safe place to work.

Emergency Lighting

DRAM can also include your emergency lighting within your fire alarm maintenance contract, and will maintain systems in accordance with BS 5266-1:2011

Fire Extinguishers

British Standard BS5306 part 3:2009, states that Fire Extinguishers should be serviced by a competent person at 12 monthly intervals.

According to the Code this is a “person with the qualifications, training and experience, with access to the relevant tools, equipment and information, manuals and knowledge of any special procedures recommended by the manufacturer of an extinguisher, to carry out the relevant maintenance procedures”.
