Our own team of UK-wide engineers – why it makes a difference
Scheduled annual smoke control maintenance is something that every building owner/occupier, employer or facilities manager should know all about – it’s legislatively required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order after all.
There will be an asset register of smoke control components which must receive periodic testing and preventative maintenance, including upgrade and replacement where necessary, to ensure successful operation of a system that can save lives, assets and property if and when called upon to do so in the event of a fire.
There are times, however, when knowing that your 5th floor smoke ventilator is due for servicing is of little use; if it suddenly fails in the open position and is letting rainwater into your building.
That’s why, as the UK’s leading specialist service provider for smoke control systems, Brakel Airvent offers a four hour emergency call out service for all of our service contract clients – any time of day, any day of the year. We call it our 4/24/365 service and there’s only one way we’re able to offer it where our competitors can’t: our directly employed nationwide workforce.
Unlike a lot of other smoke control maintenance firms, Brakel Airvent employs all its own regionally based service engineers. No subcontractors means no delays, no confusion and ensures that an appropriately trained and experienced engineer is mobilised to deal with your specific problem. It means people who fully understand and work to the highest standards for which we’ve become renowned, and it means people who will be able to answer your questions on site there and then, without needing to clamber through multiple chains of authority.
So if your smoke control maintenance contract is up for renewal, or you’re considering a system refurbishment, please do contact Brakel Airvent for a chat about how our directly employed UK-wide engineer network can make life easier for you.
