Blake Fire and Security Systems

Not Just Any Fire Alarm Maintenance... Blake's Fire Alarm Maintenance!

Date: 10 February 2022

We don't mean to sound like an advert for a well known food shop but, in the words of Spandau Ballet, "it's true!"...

Any competent company can offer you Fire Alarm maintenance. However, not every company gets it right, or goes out of their way to deliver the best possible service.

Avoid choosing a maintenance provider whose primary goal is to pay the bills. Instead, you'll want a fire and security company who can:

  • work to British Standards and legislation
  • be held accountable by a governing body or organisation (such as NSI Gold)
  • pay attention to the tiny details
  • go the extra mile

After all, that's the only way to ensure you're truly fulfilling on your duty of care as the business owner or Responsible Person...

Here are 5 reasons why Blake's Fire Alarm maintenance service is second to none:

1. First and foremost, we're NSI Gold Fire accredited

NSI Gold for fire entinguisher maintenanceThis covers BAFE qualifications for:

  • Design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Fire Alarm systems: SP203-1
  • Supply, positioning, commissioning and maintenance of portable Fire Extinguishers: SP101/ST104
  • Design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Emergency Lighting systems: SP203-4

NSI Gold approval means that we are audited beyond BAFE competency standards as we're tested for quality management.

For your Fire Alarm maintenance, this means:

  • Certainty that you have fulfilled your duty as Responsible Person
  • Reliable, polite, qualified staff - both customer-facing and on the phone
  • The highest quality commercial systems

2. Reduced callout fees

Yes, you read that right! We don't take every little opportunity to charge you extra callout fees.

Most companies will only bring the tools they deem necessary to go about their general maintenance duties and, if something unexpected crops up, they'll arrange another visit at an additional cost.

Blake's, on the other hand, carry extra tools in our vans so we can fix any other issues before they become a worry - a small problem could escalate quickly if you have to wait 7 days for another site visit!

No extra call out = no extra hassle.

3. Stress-free takeovers

Your current maintenance provider might not be up to scratch... or perhaps the Fire Brigade have recommended you change provider after unnecessary false Fire Alarm call-outs.

Whatever the reason, Blake's can offer a stress-free takeover for your current system, no matter who installed it.

After you cancel your existing maintenance, we can quickly initiate the takeover and, if there are any further details we need from your previous provider, we'll get in touch. Your time won't be taken up with tedious back-and-forth phone calls - Blake's have got you covered.

Want to discuss a takeover with a member of our friendly team? We'd be happy to help! Just call 01702 447800.

4. We're big enough to cope but small enough to care

Blake's is big enough to cope with complex commercial system designs, installations and maintenance. It also means that, if you have an issue that needs immediate attention, we'll get someone to your premises ASAP.

You're not guaranteed that service if your maintenance provider is a sole-trader. He can't be in two places at once and you may have to wait your turn if there's more than one urgent job...

On the other hand, we're small enough to care passionately about you. Your business doesn't become an anonymous number when it's added to a customer spreadsheet like it can with the larger companies.

As a family run business, we strive to maintain real relationships with our clients.

5. We've been maintaining commercial fire systems for years

Blake's have been helping Southend homes and businesses since 1979, when Ian Blake formed Blake Electrical as a sole trader.

2002 saw the addition of a new Fire & Security department which became NSI Gold accredited in 2005.

Do you really need a company like Blake's?

Although there are laws and regulations that your systems have to meet, there is no law that states a commercial premises has to hire a qualified Fire Alarm maintenance provider - just a 'competent' one.

Anyone can claim they are competent at installing and maintaining fire alarms, even your friend who loves DIY and thinks he can give it a go. The point is, he may talk the talk, have a branded van and all the tools, but you'd be none the wiser.

In a world of unregistered, unqualified and unaccredited cowboys, the engineers at Blake's are trained professionals who always get the job done right the first time round.

Choose Blake's for your commercial Fire Alarm maintenance to avoid a horror story...

Choosing the wrong Fire Alarm maintenance provider could literally land you in jail! If the worst should happen and your equipment isn't working as it should be, The Responsible Person will be held accountable and could face unlimited fines or a prison sentence...
