Why you should choose DRAM for your Fire Safety Equipment Maintenance

Fire Safety Equipment Maintenance
At DRAM Fire & Security, we completely understand the pressures put upon commercial business owners to not only make a running success of their business venture, but also to meet with and maintain all current UK health and safety and fire regulations.
As detailed in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, a ‘responsible person’ must be nominated to carry out a fire risk assessment to not only assess any potential fire hazards within your commercial building, but to also take any necessary steps and actions towards resolving or reducing any fire risks on-site, including the installation, testing and ongoing upkeep of fire safety equipment.
For the safety of your employee’s as well as yourself and your property, it is vitally important to keep fire safety equipment in perfect working order – failure to do so could result in some very serious consequences that could endanger the life of people.

We will ensure that your fire safety equipment is appropriate for your needs and is in full working order. We will also check that your equipment is in the best possible locations to be fully obvious and accessible in the event of a fire.
DRAM can check both your active and passive fire safety equipment on a regular basis to make sure there are no signs of wear and tear or damage. We will advise you of our recommendations to replace old or expired safety equipment that no longer meets with current regulations.

Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
One of the most important pieces of your fire protection are your fire extinguishers. These are vital first-line methods of fire fighting within commercial and industrial premises. Fire extinguishers are extremely valuable as they can be a very effective way of tackling and extinguishing small fires before they get a chance to take hold and cause real damage to your building or become a risk to life.
DRAM can make sure that your fire extinguishers are frequently maintained and remain fully operational should you ever need to use them.
