Whether you have a fire alarm system that comprises a few smoke detectors, or a large multi panel networked system, Drax 360 offers a range of fire alarm servicing agreements to suit your needs. We work with organisations in a range of environments; from nursing homes to multinational manufacturers, and local NHS Trusts to some of the largest university estates in the UK. We can tailor our fire alarm servicing packages to include weekly bell testing, routine maintenance, and call outs – regardless of the sophistication of your systems.
Our fire maintenance service is in line with the recommendations made with BS5839, ensuring that 100% of your devices are tested over a 12 month period – with a minimum of 2 service visits per year. However, we can tailor our fire alarm maintenance and servicing packages to suit your operational needs including a full-time site presence, or a rolling programme.
Fire alarm system faults are inevitable – building works, water ingress, and general wear and tear can all contribute to system problems. At Drax 360, our expert staff can identify and rectify faults quickly and efficiently, and we aim to return your system to full working order in the shortest possible time.
Your building layouts may change, meaning that escape routes and their protection level will be modified. Our fire alarm servicing team can advise on any potential changes the fire alarm system design may need as a result of this, including the often forgotten considerations needed to alarm loop loadings, and control panel software.
What we offer
Recommendations for dilapidation
Our specialist engineers can provide consultation on the service life of your fire alarm system components, the potential they have for failure, and the availability of spare parts.
Drax 360 can help ensure that your devices are operating satisfactorily, based of the recommended design life. We do this by assessing the current condition of your systems and advise whether replacement is needed.
Reporting non compliances
We’ll assess your installed fire alarm system and review its compliance with the current standards. Then, we'll report any shortcomings to the responsible person in your organisation.
In addition to our other services, Drax 360 provides a combined compliance and condition report, with a fully costed gap analysis. Working with you, we can then prioritise certain activities - enabling you to plan your budget in advance.
Drax 360 technologies are improving levels of fire protection, boosting efficiency, and reducing costs. We make service reports accessible via our online portal (IRIS), and display all your information in a central performance management dashboard (SafeVue).

Paul Slater, Project Manager
Pyrotec Fire & Security
Drax helped us design and install a temporary fire alarm solution for a large, partly inhabited, residential renovation project. The outcome saved over £5k per week, as we no longer required waking watch, but more importantly, improved our residents safety. The installation was so successful, we decided to integrate it into the final construction. Thank you Drax!
Lyn Ware, Interim Project Manager
Drax offer a great piece of technology which tells you the exact location/flat number of the fire activation, meaning a reduction in false alarm calls to the fire and rescue services. They were a pleasure to work with when integrating this solution into our monitoring centres
