Electrical Testing Box

Developed to run in tandem with our highly successful fire alarm installation and maintenance departments, Brighton Fire Alarms employs a number of full time electricians to concentrate solely on electrical contracting.

Electrical works carried out range from small works such as additional power points, minor repairs, domestic rewires to larger installations at factory and commercial premises.

As Brighton Fire Alarms are approved contractors with NICEIC, all works are carried out to the latest revision of BS7671 complete with the relevant certification and are backed up by the E.C.A. Warranty and Bond Scheme. From January 1st 2005 Brighton Fire Alarms became Part P compliant, this ensures that all works are suitably designed, installed and inspected to the exact legal requirements of the building regulations.

Electrical Testing

All electrical installations deteriorate with time. Landlord properties should be inspected and tested every 3 to 5 years. Domestic dwellings every 10 years. Such safety checks are commonly known as ‘periodic inspection’ or ‘electrical installation condition reports’ (EICR).

An electrical inspection report will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
  • Identify any defective electrical work.
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.

Tests are carried out on fixed wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property

Brighton Fire Alarms will issue you with an Electrical Installation Condition Report detailing any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliance with the current BS7671 regulations

If any dangerous or potentially dangerous condition or conditions are found, the overall condition of the electrical installation will be declared to be ‘unsatisfactory’, meaning that remedial action is required without delay to remove the risks to those in the premises.

With our team of electricians we are able to address any recommendations listed in the report and issue relevant certificates of compliance on completion.

All works will be carried out to the latest BS7671 IET wiring regulations. 

Emergency Lighting Installation

British Standard 5266-1 2016 regulations decree that it is a legal requirement for all emergency lighting systems to be tested and maintained on a regular basis. This includes responsible persons nominated to keep adequate records of the installation details, test reports and maintenance records.

Brighton Fire Alarms maintenance division offers comprehensive packages which can be tailored to suit your property including weekly visual inspections, monthly tests for a short period not exceeding one quarter of the system duration, quarterly tests for one third of the system duration and annual inspections for the full durations of the system all of which are upheld to the highest possible standard. All maintenance and repairs are carried out to the latest revision of BS 5266 for Non Maintained 3 and Maintained 3 systems, including full certification. 

AOV Installation

AOV’s (automatic opening vents) are an important part of fire safety in escape staircases. They are often linked to the fire alarm system but can be stand-alone systems. On activation the control will open a window or vent situated on the upper level to allow any smoke out of the building

Brighton Fire Alarms can supply and install these systems with all parts certified to BS EN12101.

Brighton Sea Life will always put safety first, so it is for that reason that we contract Brighton Fire Alarms for all our fire and electrical safety needs. From risk assessments, surveys, installation, servicing and emergency call outs we have total confidence in the excellent service that we receive. Nothing is too much trouble and this was proven during their Christmas staff party 2016, when one of Brighton Fire Alarms Directors attended site on an emergency call out himself, despite hosting his own festive celebration at the time. I have absolutely nothing but great recommendations for the service this company provides, and I feel a lot safer with this company by my side.
