Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems: The Importance of Planned Maintenance & Servicing

As a business owner, ensuring the safety and protection of your property/assets is of utmost importance. One crucial aspect of safeguarding your premises is installing a reliable fire suppression system. However, simply installing a fire suppression system is not enough. Regular planned maintenance and servicing of these systems are vital to ensure they are in perfect working condition.


Why Is Regular Maintenance So Important?

Planned maintenance and servicing are essential to keep your Fireward automatic fire suppression system functioning optimally. Neglecting regular maintenance can lead to system failures, rendering the system ineffective when you need it the most. That's why, by adhering to the recommended maintenance schedule, you can ensure that your fire suppression system remains in the best condition and ready to protect your property in case of a fire emergency.

1- Enhancing System Longevity and Reliability

Fire suppression systems are a long-term investment in the safety of your assets and the continuity of your business operations. By adhering to regular maintenance schedules, you can significantly enhance the longevity and reliability of your Fireward fire suppression system. Proper regular maintenance ensures that all system components are in optimal condition, reducing the risk of malfunction and maximising the system's lifespan.  

2- Compliance with Insurance Requirements

In addition to adhering to warranty conditions and industry standards, regular maintenance of your fire suppression system is crucial for insurance compliance. Insurance providers often require proof of regular maintenance and servicing to validate your cover. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in your insurance being affected or even deemed invalid. This is why Fireward always promote regular servicing by one of their certified engineers.

3- The Cost of Servicing 

Fireward's 3-year FULL parts and labour warranty ensures you don't get caught out by hidden charges and can help reduce the cost of ownership when compared to other systems.

1- Inspection of the Entire System

During a scheduled service, the Fireward engineer will conduct a comprehensive inspection of the entire fire suppression system. This inspection ensures that all components, including the detection sensors, control panel, and extinguishing agents, are functioning correctly. The engineer will carefully examine each part to identify any signs of debris, damage, or wear and tear. This meticulous inspection guarantees that the system is free from any obstructions or faults that could hinder its performance.

2-    Testing the Activation Mechanism

Fireward engineers will test the activation mechanism during their servicing visits to ensure that the system activates promptly and effectively if a fire occurs. They verify that the system responds as intended and initiates the appropriate response to suppress it. This testing provides you with peace of mind, knowing that your fire suppression system will activate in case of an emergency.

3-   Inspection for Obstructions

Over time, debris such as dust, dirt, or other foreign particles can accumulate within the fire suppression system, which can obstruct its functioning or cause damage to its components. During the maintenance visit, the Fireward engineer will check the system to ensure that all parts are free from debris that may impede the system's performance.



Regular maintenance and servicing of your Fireward fire suppression system can prevent costly repairs in the long run. By identifying and addressing minor issues during routine inspections, potential problems can be resolved before they escalate into major faults. This proactive approach not only saves you from unexpected costly repair expenses but also minimises the risk of system failure.
