In accordance with the requirements of BS5266, emergency lighting systems should be periodically tested and inspected to ensure that all luminaires function for design lighting levels, duration and are positioned (including signage) correctly for use in 'power loss situations'.
Elecforce offer a comprehensive testing and assessment service to include the following:
Having carried out testing, the results are presented in a high quality report which includes the following documentation:
A correctly designed and working fire alarm system will give enough warning to save lives and hopefully allow fire fighters enough time to limit property damage. Periodic testing, backed up by regular user checks will ensure that the system is always protecting people and property.
Over time, smoke detectors become less sensitive, standby batteries in control panels become weak and general faults can develop.
The sensitivity of detectors on a poorly maintained or neglected fire alarm system may result in the system not going into alarm condition should a fire develop, that could be deadly.
Regular checks are an essential part of fire alarm system maintenance.
Periodic testing of fire alarm systems is a requirement for a local authority fire certificate.
Tests Carried Out
All smoke and heat detectorswill be tested for functionality. Bells and sounders will be operated and assessed to ensure that they provide sufficient sound levels in all areas. Fire panels, their batteries and all cable joints where accessible will be checked for integrity and functionality.
