Commercial fire alarms are designed to protect the people in your business. But they only work if they are properly maintained on a regular schedule. You can’t anticipate an emergency in your business but you can make sure that your fire alarm is working properly. To protect your employees and your business, let’s talk about some things you’ll need to know about your commercial fire alarms.
How Old is Your Fire Alarm?
Just like the vehicle you took in for its 30,000-mile tune-up, fire alarms systems need specific maintenance depending on their age. Knowing the age of your commercial fire alarm can help you anticipate the maintenance that is required as well as potential repairs you will need to do down the road. Systems between the ages of five and 10 could have breakdowns to different components of the system because of the environment they serve in. Temperature, humidity, and even voltage fluctuations can cause components of your system to break down over time. The older a system gets; the more work will need to be done to them in order for them to function normally.
One of the most important aspects of commercial fire alarm maintenance is testing and calibration. In order to perform these tests and calibration, you will need to know about the specific sensors of the unit, failure modes, and re-installation requirements before testing the system. While you could learn about these systems, many business owners prefer to leave this part of the maintenance up to the specialists like Fireline.
