We Keep You Up to Code
To ensure their reliability, fire alarm systems must be inspected, tested and maintained. Confires will set up a service program for periodic testing, inspection and maintenance that conforms to:
- NFPA code requirements
- Local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs)
- System manufacturer’s recommended inspection and maintenance requirements
- Required Annual Fire Alarm System Testing
Fire alarm systems consist of much more than smoke detectors on the walls or ceilings or a main fire alarm control panel in the front of your building. Many elements of fire alarm systems are kept out of sight, so you might not be able to check them every day. During a routine annual fire alarm system inspection, the various components of your fire alarm system are exercised and tested to make sure they’re all in good working order. That would include all of the manual pull stations, alert/alarm methods (strobes and horns), smoke and heat detectors, duct detectors, annunciator panels, the main alarm panel and any communications sub-panels and battery backup supplies.
Fire Alarm Inspection & Repair
At Confires, we offer troubleshooting and repair of circuit boards and all other fire alarm components. If a fire alarm inspection turns up any items that need to be addressed, our experienced technical staff will quickly find the answer to the problem and have it fixed as quickly as possible.
Why are fire alarm system inspections important?
One of the most important fire protection systems you can install in your New Jersey, Delaware or Philadelphia building is a fire alarm. A fire alarm system is one of the best ways to alert your employees and coworkers of a fire so they can quickly get to safety. It is important to keep your fire alarm system up to code to ensure it works properly at all times. Having these tests done annually will ensure that the fire alarm system is ready and able to perform correctly in the actual event of a fire emergency.
