Unwanted Fire Alarm Signals are a concern to both business and Fire and Rescue Services.
Most fire alarm systems cause no problems but those that frequently have false alarms cost the UK in excess of £1 billion a year.
There are many causes of false fire alarms. Here are some example reasons listed below:
Why fire alarm maintenance prevents false alarms?
The maintenance of the system is very important, a fire detection and alarm system should be maintained by a third-party accredited service provider, ensuring only competent persons work on the system and any faults should be investigated and resolved immediately.
Ageing systems and components
Manufacturers generally recommend the replacement of detectors between 10 and 15 years, the recommended age varies across the wide range of manufacturers. Ageing equipment can be a cause of false alarms as the components start to fail.
