It is a legal requirement to have appropriate fire detection and alarm system in place in an office or workplace. The system must be fully functioning and regularly maintained.
Regular maintenance and service checks on all fire safety equipment is important. A defective system will not save lives or minimise the risk of property damage.
Fire Alarm Systems should be tested and serviced at a minimum twice a year. Extinguishers must be serviced annually.
C&M Fire Alarms offer a range of different fire detection and alarm systems: from conventional to networked addressable. The type of system you need will be dependent upon the size of your property and a fire risk assessment.
