The requirement for your Testing and Maintenance of your Fire and Essential Systems maintenance is a legal requirement covered by various Acts, Legislation and Codes.Routine Service, Testing and maintenance is a requirement drawn from several areas including but not limited to:
All fire systems that are required for premises are outlined in the local Council Registered Fire Schedule; this can be requested from the council or be attached to the reminder letter sent to your from the council 90 days prior to the annual fore statement anniversary date.All systems require Inspection, Service and Maintenance as outlined in the applicable Australian Standard for that system and the Australian Standard AS1851 -2012.
This Australian Standard specifically outlines the requirements for the routine servicing, inspection, testing, preventative maintenance, installation, survey, and maintenance frequencies required for fire protection systems, equipment, integrated systems, peripheral devices, and connected services.
For the Fire System to work effectively, there is integration with other building services and equipment.For example:
As part of the standard, there is a relationship with the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system, that is, the standard AS1668.Typically, HVAC is referred to as the “Mechanical Services” component of the Fire System.Supply and Exhaust fans, which serve the air conditioning system for our indoor environmental control, become potential life-saving equipment in “Fire Mode” where these fans are called to run to reduce smoke and provide fresh air and oxygen into the building, reducing smoke inhalation and potentially saving lives.With our HVAC / Mechanical services team, we can provide the relevant maintenance and repairs to this part of the system in line with the Standards.
There are many components between the Fire Control System and the Mechanical Services System which interconnect and work together here, for example:
During a given FIRE MODE, the mechanical services system:
just to name a few
Emergency Lighting, that is, lighting, which is supported by a backup battery and installed and maintained specifically as per AS2293, is a core component of the maintenance of the fire protection system.We offer the scheduled maintenance of the lighting system in line with the recommendations and procedures of both AS1851 and AS2993 and as per relevant Codes.
We do not subcontract this component; we have electricians on the team who provide the expertise for this service.
With any of the Commercial or residential buildings, we maintain we ask the Fire Alarm Monitoring Company (ADT, RomTechGrid) to include our contact details as part of the alarm notification list.Firstly, this ensures we receive the alarm at the same time the Fire Brigade receives the alarm.Secondly, this ensures you know we are aware of the situation and can organize repairs promptly if required.
Most ASE equipment is proprietary which means testing and repairs of the device will be by the proprietor.
We still test the ASE device by sending a signal to the fire brigade and ensuring it performs its task. Should there be any faults with the ASE, these are typically proprietary and repaired by the vendor. We will oversee any repairs and ensure the final result is a fully functional system that notifies the fire brigade.
