Summary of service
Commercial fire alarm maintenance or fire alarm servicing is an essential part of the safety checks a company is legally bound to carry out in order to keep its employees and assets safe. Simply put, a fire alarm system is redundant if it does not operate effectively, placing the safety of your employees at risk and exposing you to prosecution.
At Tecserv UK, we believe that an ongoing programme of maintenance inspections, sometimes referred to as planned preventative maintenance(PPM), should be part of your operational strategy to ensure the optimum performance of your fire, security alarm, access control or CCTV surveillance systems.
