Servicing of Sprinkler Systems

To ensure your sprinkler system will operate correctly at all times it is a requirement of the British Standard that it is maintained and subject to an annual service. On completion and commissioning of a fire sprinkler system, the details of the system are added to our servicing database.

Approximately four weeks before the system requires a service, the person responsible for the sprinkler system will be contacted to remind them that the system now requires a service. Servicing costs vary from £140 + VAT for small dwellings up to three bedrooms, to £400 + VAT for a block of flats, (prices correct as of June 1st 2018).

Sprinkler LTD also offers a service contract for an additional 20% of the service cost. This is paid annually or in two payments over the year and in addition to an annual service includes:

  • 15% discount on all replacement parts
  • 10% discount on any labour should remedial work be required
