Fire Alarm Systems We Work With

Conventional Alarm System

These system have simple on and off switches. The alarm can be triggered by smoke and steam, even if it’s not a real fire yet. This is the most cost effective system for small projects.

Analogue Addressable Systems

This system has a control panel that can monitor each smoke detector. It can therefore identify which device detected the fire. It has a more advanced system and is not easily triggered by false fire.

Fire Alarm Inspection Services

Even the most simple fire alarm system is not easily comprehended by a normal person. It involves a lot of parts that are invisible to the untrained eye. You need an experienced fire technician to check every element of your fire alarm system.

Phontain Controls certified fire alarm inspectors will conduct these routine checks for you, at a schedule based on your fire alarm system. We will consult this with you to ensure that inspections are done at correct intervals and don’t interfere with day to day business. Each check will confirm that all the components are functional and free from physical damage or other impairment.

The following are some of the tests completed during each inspection:

  • Smoke detector sensitivity test
  • Notification appliance audibility and intelligibility test
  • Battery load test

  • Control panel fuse and power supply test
  • Manual pull stations test
  • Random check of circuits

After these test, we provide you with a detailed inspection report indicating all performances and deficiencies of each of the alarm system’s components. We go over these reports with you and answer any questions you might have.

There are fire alarm components that require  monthly inspection, while others require a quarterly, semi-annual or annual inspection. Most manufacturers also require one annual test and inspection after installation of the fire alarm system.

You can also request for an emergency inspection if you think that something’s not right with the system. Technicians for arrive as soon as possible to identify if there are any problems that need to be fixed.
