Fire Services, Portable Appliances (PAT) and Asbestos

Fire Servicing

i) Fire Extinguishers require annual maintenance by a competent person (usually a specialist contractor) 12 months after installation of a new extinguisher and at 12 monthly intervals thereafter.

We service all types of portable fire extinguishers in accordance with British Standards and Amendments as well as refilling when they have been discharged.


ii) Fire Alarm Systems and Emergency Lighting

We can provide planned maintenance on any size of system from simple to complex networked systems from a single building to a portfolio of buildings.

a) Fire alarms require annual servicing and maintenance to ensure that they operate when a signal is received when a fire is detected and that the component parts of the alarm work as expected when tested.

b) Emergency Lighting - the purpose of emergency lighting testing is to ensure that in the event of an emergency then the each emergency luminaire (light) would operate to ensure safe passage from the building until such time that it can be reoccupied and that it is fit for purpose and satisfies the requirements of the standards.


Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is a process where electrical appliances are routinely checked to see whether they are safe which is undertaken by qualified and experienced PAT Testing engineers.

When we PAT Test your equipment, each appliance is tested to meet the exacting requirements of the IEE Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. Using current computerised equipment, we are able to test all portable appliances in your company including - IT equipment, microwaves, 110V plant equipment and more.


Reports and Certification

Once testing is complete a safety certificate and a report detailing the information on each individual item is issued. Each item that passes the inspection and testing will be labelled with a safety sticker and a unique number to help keep track of all portable appliances in your company.
