Prior to Tecserv’s appointment, maintenance was being carried out using a combination of in-house personal together with another provider who looked after some but not all buildings. Uppingham School decided they would like to place the entire contract with one fire alarm system maintenance specialist with the capabilities, skills and expertise to take over the servicing of the all fire alarms across the entire school site. For a short while, this meant working with the existing provider until the end of their contract.
The most recent work involved installation of new control panels to replace of old panels, and the installation of upgraded detection in various buildings due to the age of the panel and detection devices.
TecservUK visited each building with plans and checked everywhere including basements, ceiling and roof voids to see if further detection was needed, particularly in buildings where there was no fire detection. The school also needed to fill the gaps within some buildings to bring them in line with an L1/L2 system.
Because some buildings had old conventional half addressable systems the school also decided to upgrade their system so that all were addressable systems.
Having been issued with a summary of the school site and following a thorough on-site assessment, Tecserv UK was appointed to carry out regular fire alarm system maintenance and servicing. We now visit the school according to the agreed service schedule to inspect all buildings and test all components to ensure the fire alarm system is functioning effectively and that Uppingham School complies with the required fire safety regulations.
Our engineers are also on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to ensure that any unforeseen maintenance issues are fixed promptly. We also work with staff to help them educate staff and pupils on fire safety and how to avoid triggering unwanted fire alarms.
