Our service agreements can be tailored to meet the individual requirements of our customers, which may range from an annual visit through to weekly inspections together with Insurance Company inspections.

Fixed fire protection equipment has to be ready for operation at any time. Only regular skilled, precise and meticulous maintenance can ensure that systems remain in an alert condition. Maintenance is therefore essential to ensure that any fire protection system is able to offer uninterrupted performance. It may only get one opportunity.

Certificate of Compliance

Wet and Dry Riser Maintenance

As with all fire protection systems, wet and dry risers should be maintained on a regular basis to ensure they are operating correctly and can be relied upon when they are needed.

Our maintenance engineers have at their disposal a fully equipped test vehicle with on board pumping unit and a supply of stored water. Once an initial visual inspection has been undertaken and landing valves checked, the riser is pumped full of water before the further tests are carried out.

Upon successful completion of the test and inspection, a certificate of compliance will be issued for each riser in accordance with BS9990. Should any defects be found, a report would be raised along with a cost for the remedial works to be carried out.
