If you don’t have an alarm installed yet, be sure to get a professional to come and look at your premises – you may find you don’t need to have one at all. Tas Valley Fire (UK) Ltd is committed to giving our customers honest advice and to find ways to save them money, so we’ll tell you if you don’t need something, as well as if you do.
Once it’s been established that you need an alarm system, we’ll carry out surveys to guide you on the appropriate system for you, one that is tailored to your budget too. In your fire risk assessment, we can identify the minimum type of fire alarm system you require and also advise on what type of system you may require for property protection. We are then in a position to offer you our installation service where our fully trained team can ensure your alarm is installed and working in a timely fashion.
In order to maintain your fire alarm system following installation, an inspection by an experienced professional should be done every six months. This will ascertain that the alarm is fully operational and to support this a weekly test should be carried out by the occupier. Tas Valley Fire (UK) Ltd can carry out these inspections for all customers who require them.
The purpose of emergency lighting systems is to provide sufficient light in the event of the fire causing sudden failure in the lighting circuitry. It is also useful during power cuts to provide illumination for people to exit the building or continue to carry out some tasks in the event of a power cut, which would not be possible during a total lighting failure.
Emergency lighting in sleeping risks (such as in hotels, residential homes, hostels etc) should be capable of providing lasting light for a minimum of three hours, whereas the lighting in offices and factories and other institutions should remain on for at least an hour.
The emergency lighting should be tested on a bi-yearly basis by a competent person and the occupier of the premises should do a flick test once a month.
