Weekly Bell


What is it?

In accordance with British Standards guidance, fire alarm systems should be tested on a weekly basis.

However, many companies either make infrequent checks throughout the year or totally ignore the importance altogether.

You specify the time and day, and we will carry out the duty on a weekly basis.


Our weekly bell test takes the hassle out of making sure your property is safe in the event of an emergency, our officers will attend your premises and carry out the test at your convenience.
