The following is an overview of the services we provide nationally through our team of qualified, installation engineers.
Fire Risk Assessment (FRA)
Your buildings’ fire risk assessment (FRA) forms the basis of the systems that should be present. The FRA should be suitable to the premises and processes undertaken at the premises and be sufficiently well completed. There are a number of registers for fire risk assessors, JCW follow the PAS 79 Fire Risk Assessment, guidance and methodology from BSI along with the governments guidance for FRA’s that is applicable to the type and use of the premises.
If you require assistance with your FRA and would like to appoint a competent person to complete one for you, get in contact with us, we can complete a professional risk assessment of your premises.

Fire Alarm System Installations
All buildings whether publicly or privately owned have a legal requirement for a minimum level of fire protection and JCW can ensure that you fulfil your legal obligation by having the necessary level of protection for you building.
We can provide a full project management service for your installation from the initial Fire Risk Assessment through to the design, installation or replacement of fire alarm equipment. We will ensure that new and existing buildings comply with Fire Regulations and maintain structural fire integrity in a cost effective and efficient manner.
Emergency lighting is lighting for an unforeseen situation when the mains power supply is lost, and normal illumination fails. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to staff and customers, either through physical danger or mental distress.
The purpose of emergency lighting is to allow work continuity or in worst-case scenarios, safe evacuation of staff and/or public. The installation of adequate emergency lighting is a legal requirement.
Portable Fire Fighting Equipment
Having the correct fire extinguishers installed in your premises is a vital component of your fire safety strategy. The fire alarm system can alert you to the fact there is a fire, the extinguishers provide the opportunity to put the fire out. It is essential that the occupants of the building are provided sufficient training in the use of portable fire fighting equipment.
Your fire risk assessment will provide guidance as to the amount and type of extinguishers that are required. Fire extinguishers should always be installed and commissioned by qualified engineers and a certificate provided as proof of correct installation and confirm they meet with current regulations.
