Fire Alarm Inspection & Certificate

Fire Alarm Certificate

When a property is in multiple occupations, the risk of fire breaking out is greater than in an
ordinary single family home. Some of the reasons for this are:

  • Portable heating appliances may be used Electrical circuits can become overloaded
  • There is often more than one kitchen present (a high-risk area)
  • There are people in the house who are living independently of, and having no control over, each other’s behavior.
  • If a fire should break out in a building, escape can be difficult. The risk of serious injury or death can, therefore, be increased.
  • A Fire alarm certificate is a compulsory inspection and should be conducted in accordance to BS5839. These regulations are part of the fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings; they cover design maintenance and commissioning.

The guide to fire alarm inspections are listed below and are classified based on systems types:

Grade A Fire Alarm system
Grade A fire alarm systems have the following requirements;

  • Heat Detectors.
  • Manual Call Points.
  • Smoke Detectors.
  • Central Control Panel.
  • Sounders.

They are automatic fire detection system which incorporates control and indicating equipment conforming to BS EN54-2, and power supply equipment conforming to BS EN54-4 (designed for dwellings and based on a BS5839 part 1 system) with detectors sited in escape routes (including rooms that open onto escape routes) and in rooms or areas that present a high fire risk to occupants, detailed in BS 5839.
They are normally found in a commercial property, but can also be placed in homes.

Grade D Fire Alarm System:
They are automatic fire detection system (designed for dwellings) based on interconnected mains powered smoke alarms (with battery back-up) with detectors sited in escape routes (including rooms that open onto escape routes) and in rooms or areas that present a high fire risk to occupants, detailed in BS 5839. This system can be found in most domestic properties.

A full test of the fire alarm system must be carried out every 6 months. The installer must certify that the installation conforms to the recommendation of the current BS 5839 Part 6 detailing the Grade and Category of system installed. The fire alarm test should be carried out in accordance with BS5839 part 1 section 6. Once the test is concluded, it should be put down in the log book. On completion of your fire alarm testing, you should receive a fire alarm certificate.
