Fire Alarm Testing


At IPS Ltd our aim is to be the irresistible choice for anyone that has a need for a fire alarm solution be it large or small, commercial or domestic. We can design, supply, install commission service and maintain any fire alarm system in full accordance and compliance with the British Standards and in particular BS5839 parts 1, 6 & 8; our Fire Alarm Testing is done to a high standard. We have fully qualified designers to look at each project and provide the right solution and the right price. Our engineering team will manage every aspect of a project from start to finish, everything is documented and drawings produced for all projects regardless of size. Our onsite teams of installers, commissioning and service engineers will ensure that every step of the process is carried out in a professional manner and handed over to you in a pristine condition.


A correctly designed and working fire alarm system will give enough warning to save lives and hopefully allow fire fighters enough time to limit property damage. Periodic testing, backed up by regular user checks will ensure that the system is always protecting people and property. Fire Alarm Testing is very important to maintain the integrity of the system.


Over time, smoke detectors become less sensitive, standby batteries in control panels become weak and general faults can develop. The sensitivity of detectors on a poorly maintained or neglected fire alarm system may result in the system not going into alarm condition should a fire develop, that could be deadly. Regular checks are an essential part of fire alarm system maintenance. Fire Alarm Testing is a requirement for a local authority fire certificate.

Our Fire Alarm Testing includes:

All smoke and heat detectors will be tested for functionality. Bells and sounders will be operated and assessed to ensure that they provide sufficient sound levels in all areas. Fire panels, their batteries and all cable joints where accessible will be checked for integrity and functionality.

Ranging from the small conventional style system design for commercial and domestic properties through to the latest technology analogue / addressable detection systems for large industrial and commercial applications.

At IPS we have experience in working on all systems, including Apollo, Hochiki, Gent, Notifier, Protec, Chubb, ADT to name but a few. We can design, supply, install, commission and service a fire system for you.
