Testing &
Commissioning:
For Radio-frequency units, it is essential that a site survey is undertaken to ensure
adequate signal strength throughout the building and also that the installers are trained
on how to ‘code’/set-up the system. The manufacturer should be contacted for additional
information on these points.
When installation is complete the dust cover must be removed from the alarm/s and the
system tested for correct operation both on the mains and stand-by power supplies as
detailed in the instructions supplied with the alarms.
The alarms should not be tested other than by the means detailed in the instructions. The
test function of each alarm shall fully test the alarm’s circuitry, sensor and horn assembly
from the Test button. The installer should supply a duly completed and signed copy of the
attached Installation Certificate for all installations, noting the variations from the
requirements of Clause 23.3p of BS 5839: Pt.6: 2013.
Tenant
Instruction:
Additional
Information:
The installer must supply the tenant with the user instruction leaflet supplied with the
alarm/s and explain how the system works, how to test it, how to silence nuisance alarms
and explain the need to cover the alarms when re-decoration work takes place. The dust
cover for the alarm/s must be left with the tenant for use in these circumstances. The
tenant should be notified that the batteries in the alarm/s cannot be removed and will not
require replacement during the life of the alarm/s.
A Tenant User Card giving simplified information on testing and maintenance of the alarm
system shall be available.
