A Complete Service
Whether you need a new installation, alterations to an existing system or a service contract we can offer a complete service for both fire alarms, fire extinguishers and emergency lighting.
Where We Operate
Drewlec operates throughout Central Southern England including Dorset & Hampshire.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which came into force in 2006, requires the “responsible person” for each building to carry out or commission from a competent person a Fire Risk Assessment to ensure that the general fire precautions within a particular building are fit for the purposes that that building is being currently put to.
Whether or not a Fire Alarm System is installed in your premises it is a legal requirement that a Risk Assessment is undertaken.
When you have assessed Fire Safety and carried out a Risk Assessment in your building you may wish to implement precautionary measures and either install (or upgrade an existing) a Fire Alarm System.
Drewlec Ltd has the expertise to design, install and commission a new fire alarm system and associated emergency lighting for your building.
We use a wide variety of manufacturers and can tailor a solution for your particular needs and budget. All Drewlec’s installations comply with BS 5839, 2013. This regulates the design, installation and maintenance of Fire Detection & Fire alarms.
Continued Compliance & Servicing
BS 5839 places a responsibility on the “Duty Holder” of the building to ensure that the fire alarm and emergency lighting system is properly tested, serviced and maintained.
Minimum test & check frequencies required by BS 5839 are: Daily, Weekly, Half Yearly, Annually. Each system has specific requirements and checks should be recorded where necessary in a Fire Safety Log Book.
We maintain systems on approximately 300 sites throughout Dorset & Hampshire. Drewlec is accredited by BAFE and we can organise a servicing regime for your new or existing fire alarm & emergency light system within our servicing department. Our dedicated Service Co-Ordinator will pre-arrange service dates with you well in advance. Following our engineers visit any repairs to the system are notified to clients, carried out and the certificate is issued.
