Inspection of Fire Safety Equipment

Inspection of Fire Safety Equipment

Fire alarm, fire extinguishing and smoke extraction systems all have a crucial role in ensuring fire safety. They can even save lives, or at least help to minimize unnecessary costs or other losses. Well-functioning systems detect fires effectively and extinguish them rapidly, and also help to remove harmful smoke from the building.

Risks and accidents may occur if your fire safety systems are not maintained, inspected and used properly. Kiwa Inspecta supports real estate owners and property occupiers to ensure the safety and reliability of their equipment by regular inspections or assessments. Our expertise covers the whole lifecycle from installation inspections to periodic inspections and condition assessments.

In all inspections we use random tests as appropriate to make sure your equipment is functioning correctly. We also check that the system is appropriate for its use; that it has an updated maintenance program and that the maintenance is being carried out with high quality, according to the program. After the inspection the owner will receive a report, which includes a conclusion of the inspection and possible actions to be taken.

Some of the inspections are prescribed by law and the equipment owners are responsible to follow up such demands from the authorities. Kiwa Inspecta also provides additional services such as plan audits, statements, conformity evaluations, condition ratings and smoke tests, which are tools that support ensuring fire safety even further.
