SYAM’s FAB/16Z Fire Alarm Log Book has been updated to the latest edition of BS5839 Part 1: 2017. This Standard requires more information to be recorded in the log book than its previous versions so that engineers conducting periodic inspections have the information in the log book rather than having to second-guess the designer’s original intentions.
These changes include areas identified as L2 having their fire risk and chosen detection stated, all areas with detection other than EN54-7 (optical smoke detector) such as heat detectors shall have the cause for this variation stated, and areas where multi-sensors have their sensitivity adjusted outside of EN54-7 shall also be identified together with the reason.
The FAB/16Z has useful information such as a chart to explain the categories of systems, an explanation of servicing work, space to record contact details for the designer, installer and maintenance company. It also now features a false/unwanted alarm record where the event can be detailed in such a way as to make analysis easier for management and a fire drill record that guides non-technical staff through the basic requirements that a fire drill is expected to achieve. www.syamltd.com
