Fire alarm maintenance

The Annual Maintenance Scheme is offered to ensure Fire Alarm Systems and Emergency Lighting Installations within your school are tested and serviced to comply with Part 6, Section 26 of BS 5839-1:2013, Section 12 of BS 5266-1: 2011 and Section 7 of BS50172 2004, this involves the testing and servicing of the batteries, the annual duration testing of your emergency lighting and statutory operational tests of the fire alarm systems and components. These tests require up to a maximum of four visits per annum for compliance with current regulations.

Building and Technical Services maintain the Authority’s Estate and many of the systems within schools.

We have listed the relevant prices for your school which have remained constant for six years and represent excellent value.

Please note that these prices do not cover any repairs identified during the servicing or contractors charges.

Fire Alarm

If during the 6 monthly Fire Alarm Servicing, the panel batteries are found to be faulty (or out of date) our engineers will inform you of the fault and give advice on appropriate procedures to follow. If you should require Building and Technical Service to replace the batteries for you then this can be done however please note that there will be a charge for this.

Your monthly emergency lighting and weekly fire alarm checks must still be carried out along with record keeping of all activities. It is very important to ensure you keep up to the minimum service levels to comply with the relevant British Standards.

Schools interested in joining or renewing the subscription to the scheme must tick and complete the relevant details on the subscription form within this brochure. We will process this ASAP upon receipt of the subscription in order to avoid any interruption in the maintenance and testing schedule.

We will monitor the contract closely on your behalf to ensure all operations are carried out satisfactorily and will advise all participants of any items which require attention. Separate quotations will be provided for any items not covered to enable you to take appropriate action.
