All fire alarm systems should be serviced in accordance with BS5839-1:2013 at least every 6 months, more often if the system doesn't comply with the current version of the standard or where risk assessment determines that a more frequent service would be more appropriate. Regular maintenance is important to ensure that your investment will continue to function correctly and is still fit for purpose. It will also identify any variations from the standard that may arise from changes that may be made to building layouts or uses. Regular maintenance visits from one of our engineers also means our clients have the opportunity to refresh their knowledge of the panel functions if they so wish.


M & G Fire Protection (Essex) Ltd. offer a unique design
service covering all of your fire alarm requirements.

Our engineers have a wealth of experience in the
design of fire alarm systems and have been fully
trained on the latest standards by recognised
governing bodies.

To help us choose the right equipment and system for
your needs we:

  • Undertake site visits.
  • Carry out accompanied site visits.
  • Discuss local legislation requirements with fire officers and local authorities.
  • Arrange for samples.
  • Complete design certificates.
  • Arrange and carry out full commissioning of the system.
  • Offer a full quotation package.
  • Keeping up with current legislation is a headache for many specifiers and clients: you may not be aware that the 1988 version of BS5839 Part - 1 has been withdrawn and replaced by the 2013 version?
This code of practice provides the recommendations which, if followed, would ensure adherence to current good practice. Variations are allowed, but should be justified with sound engineering principles. The new code has substantial new sections on monitoring and integrity, choice of detector type, false alarms and grade of cables. System design should therefore be carried out by a competent person to ensure that the requirements of BS 5839 Part - 1 - 2013 are complied with. We can design and provide the best system that will conform to all current legislation.
