Installation of Commercial Fire Alarm Systems
Part of our service as a professional safety company involves high quality commercial fire alarm installation in the UK. Our experts are trained to meet the latest standards in fire protection, so you can rest assured your alarm system has been installed safely and correctly.
There’s no one-size-fits all when it comes to fire alarms as it will heavily depend on specific factors including the size and layout of your premises, building specifics, personal constraints and the functionality of your business. In some cases, more than one fire alarm system may need to be installed to cover every corner of your workplace.
As a result, when it comes to installation, the process duration can vary from property to property. Smaller fire alarm systems such as fire safety signs can take a few hours to install, whereas more complex systems such as monitoring devices may take a few months.
Fire Alarm System Maintenance and Repair
Fire alarm maintenance/repair is crucial to provide adequate protection to your workplace. We recommend that a delegated, trained individual carries out this task on a weekly (or monthly) basis to ensure your fire systems remain in line with the recommended requirements.
Professional fire safety experts, such as our team at SWITCH must periodically carry out checks to ensure that every device is working as it should be. Our specialists are trained to easily identify faults with batteries, wiring, panelling and the general integrity of your fire safety equipment, and then quickly find the solution.
If your fire safety system is identified as faulty, we are able to provide fire alarm repairs to ensure they’re working correctly again. This is an incredibly important step to provide safety in the workplace and shouldn’t be overlooked.
