Fire Alarm Testing 

Your commercial fire alarm system must be operating correctly to properly protect your business. The only way to ensure correct operation is to test and maintain your system on a regular basis. Additionally, businesses must conduct an annual fire alarm system test in Chicago to meet the standards of the National Fire Alarm Code. Your insurance carrier can reject claims if you don’t possess proof of inspection. At Alarm Detection Systems, your Chicago fire alarm test company, we provide all of the services you need to ensure your alarm system is operating properly. This also limits your potential liability for injuries.

We test & visually inspect:

  • Panel functionality, LED’s, and fuses
  • Panel battery charger
  • Battery discharge
  • Horns, strobes, chimes, and bells
  • Smoke detectors
  • Heat detectors
  • Duct smoke detectors
  • Voice evacuation equipment

Fire Sprinkler System Testing

Fire sprinkler systems are a typical requirement in standard building-codes. However, sprinkler systems are not typical building technology that can be installed and ignored. That’s because degradation of the water supply or any impairment to a fire sprinkler system can have disastrous consequences. Periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance of a fire sprinkler system are essential elements for proper sprinkler function.

from the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA).

We visually inspect:

  • All sprinkler heads
  • Fire department connections
