SYAM has created the "Mains/Battery Smoke Detectors Log-Book’ in response to demand from users and installers wanting to comply with BS5839 Part 6.
BS5839 Part 6 is the British Standard that applies to all domestic dwellings including certain categories of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), bed-sits and flats.
This A5 booklet enables the location, battery replacement dates and test history of up to 22 mains/battery Fire Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors to be recorded. It also records that the Periodic Test demanded by the standard has been carried out.
This is particularly important for anyone with potential liability for fire safety such as landlords, any company offering property management services, holiday let operators and those providing static caravan or chalet accommodation.
Although regular testing is a legal requirement in these accommodation categories a log book is not, but if the worst were to happen, a written record may assist in proving compliance with Duty of Care obligations in any subsequent legal action.
Batteries reach the end of their life, detectors eventually fail with age and some tenants disable detectors which puts other occupant’s lives at risk.
In our opinion there are too many fires in rented accommodation each year to risk not ensuring that detectors work and that there is evidence to support that they have been checked and tested.
Installers of mains/battery detectors are required by BS5839 Part 6 to provide the property owner with written details of testing and battery changing requirements as well as the BS5839 Part 6 Installation Certificate.
This Log Book does all of this in a convenient form making it ideal for new-build houses and flats sold to the owner-occupier market.
Each log-book also contains a Design Certificate, Installation Certificate and a Commissioning Certificate for the work undertaken.
In the emergency lighting versions there is also an Adoption Certificate for contractors taking over existing systems. The Adoption Certificate creates a simple report on any work that is required to bring the system up to standard.
All our log-books have a simple colour key system for ease of use.
