Don’t discover the hard way that
a Smoke Test is not a Smoke Control Service.
Poorly maintained smoke control systems can be deadly.
Whilst fire grabs more headlines, smoke is the real killer. More
than twice as many people die from smoke inhalation than from
burns. Often, smoke incapacitates so rapidly that victims are
unable to make it to an otherwise perfectly accessible exit.
Why a ‘smoke test’ is not a service
There is no substitute for a proper service. If your current
servicer is not conducting full motor resistance and load tests,
checking battery charge rates and identifying cause and effect
of any failures, then your system is not being tested robustly
enough to ensure that it will work in the event of a real fire.
Competency and certification are crucial
Colt carries out thorough, notarised testing on each system
we maintain and our engineers receive full technical training on
all system types when they join. This is refreshed regularly and
supplemented whenever important developments or updates to
the legal requirements occur. Colt has 60 fully trained engineers
and is the UK’s first company to be awarded certification to
both IFC SDI 19 and SDI 05.
Furthermore, nearly a quarter of our engineers have been
with us for over 20 years. That’s truly unparalleled experience.
Small wonder then that, when looking for reliable servicing
for their smoke control systems, more and more people are
turning to the most competent. Colt.
