I WIRED SMOKE ALARMS AND HEAT DETECTORS FROM THE LOCAL LIGHTING CIRCUIT FOR A SHARED OCCUPANCY FLAT. i COMPLETED A MINOR WORKS CERTIFICATE HOWEVER THEY WANT CERTIFICATION FROM

The Certificate we require is

FIRE DETECTION & ALARM SYSTEM
Please provide a copy of the Installation Certificate for the fire > detection and alarm system. This should be completed by the > installer, in accordance > with the recommendations of British Standard 5839: Part 6: 2004 Type LD2 (Grade D).

I enclose copy of British Standard. Installation certificate is contained in this publication

Has anyone ever filled in these before and if so can someone point me in the right direction.

The certificate for fire alarms can be found in the bs 5839/6
It is usual to issue this with installed smoke detectors in domestic installations
The minor works cert is not adequate for this
The form is very straight forward just stating the type of system eg ld3
It is for design installation and commisioning of the system so
You should tell/show the clients how they work and leave information etc

I know it's not totally relevant to this post, but I would tend to put smoke alarms ona seperate breaker as if the fire causes the lighting circuit to trip it's breaker, you're straight on to batteries rather than there possibly being a delay.

Thank you Paul

I have had a look at BS5839-6, I presume I just have to fill in form E2 - Installation Certificate

Do I have to fill in form E3 Commissioning certificate and what is a soak test?

Cheers

i put Fire alarm systems in for a living, and i think the soak test wont be relavent to yourself mate. just put not aplicable next to it, basically to calc the soak test you need to first do a battery calc. adding up all the devices on all the loops of the fire alarm panel then fit the batterys to suit and kill power and it is ment to live of the batterys for 28 hours then the sounders are ment to run for x amount of hours, im not sure on the figure. also i think the soak test may be just leaving it there for a week and making sure no faults appear on the system. i dont commision my systems have a seperate team in for that. on eof them is your answer and neither apply to a smoke fed from a lighting circuit.
