FIRE & GAS DETECTION SYSTEM COMMISSIONING
Commissioning is a systematic process that provides documented confirmation that the fire protection and life safety systems function as designed and in a way that satisfies the owner’s operational needs.
Proper fire & gas detection system performance is achieved by starting during the design phase including documenting the design intent and performance objectives then continues throughout construction, acceptance, and the warranty period. Thorough commissioning should include verification of system performance but should also include evaluation of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) documentation and oversight of the training of operating personnel. The commissioning process begins at project inception and continues through design, construction, and project closeout.
The Ultimate Goal of fire & gas detection system commissioning is to ensure that a system meets the owner’s operational needs and provides continued reliable, efficient, and effective operation throughout the intended service life.
