Fire Alarm Testing London

The Importance of Fire Alarm Testing

London is a highly populated and dense city, with many properties, both new and old. From high rises to historical buildings, they house families, businesses and irreplaceable memories. History has taught us that fire can spread fast and it is important to do all we can to prevent damage and loss of life due to fire.

Our best defence against the damage fire can cause is early warning, which is why fire alarm testing in London is so vital to ensure our warning systems are working efficiently to provide and allow early escape and fire management for families, businesses and tenants.

It is a legal requirement in UK law that any home and workplace has a working fire alarm system in accordance with BS5839. Therefore it is your responsibility as a homeowner, landlord or workplace to ensure fire safety systems are working correctly.

Fire alarm testing in London allows you to ensure your fire alarm system is working as it should and a fire alarm certificate will provide proof of this as well as highlight if there are any issues, so they can be fixed.

Is it a legal requirement to service and maintain fire alarms?

It is UK law to ensure that your property has a working fire alarm system. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that is a legal requirement that the responsible person is responsible for providing and maintaining appropriate fire detectors and alarms. This means that a property owner or landlord is responsible for ensuring regular fire alarm testing is carried out and the working order of a fire alarm system.

Current UK fire alarm regulations require all business premises to have a fire alarm system. Completing a fire risk assessment will help guide you to understand to what level of fire detection you need within your building.

The relevant British Standard 5839 states that all fire alarm systems in commercial premises and properties need to be tested weekly to ensure they are working correctly, and no major failures have occurred. This can usually be carried out by a resident Fire Safety Officer or property owner but there should be regular inspection and servicing from someone with specialist knowledge of fire detection and alarm systems.

For a private or rented property, fire alarm testing in London should be carried out at least every 6 months by a competent person such as an electrician or fire alarm engineer.
