Argus Fire - A ‘One Stop Shop’ For Fire Protection

Argus Fire - A ‘One Stop Shop’ For Fire Protection

The Argus Fire service team is totally committed to the provision of timely, cost-effective and personalised maintenance programmes designed to assist their customers in maintaining and improving their investments in people and property. Argus Fire believes in working smarter hence they have developed an integrated ‘one stop’ team capable of delivering a no hassle solution to compliance requirements, integrating one technician, one contact and total commitment.

At Argus Fire they service sprinkler systems, fire alarms, hose-reels, extinguishers, magnetic hold open devices and emergency lighting without repeat visits and the cost savings are then passed on to their customers. The other benefits of utilising the skills of the Argus integrated service team are single, simple and clear service contact, no strings attached in the fine print, fast, flexible and clear reporting procedures, resulting in reduced interruptions to production, and strong relationships built between the client and the Argus technician.

Argus recognises that within the compliance industry as a whole, accountability needs to be improved. The Argus Fire team have backed themselves to ensure the standard of the service they have been delivering to their clients remains excellent and have put out a challenge to the rest of the industry in the shape of a promise. Argus Fire promises that they will ensure that Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) documents (12As) are issued on time or they will credit the value of one month’s testing.

A Building Warrant of Fitness is very similar to the warrant of fitness for a motor vehicle. For a motor vehicle a series of inspections and tests are carried out by a qualified person to ensure that the motor vehicle is safe. Once the vehicle passes the inspections and tests, the mechanic will then issue the vehicle with a warrant of fitness. This process is then repeated to ensure the vehicle is safe on an annual basis. This is very similar for buildings. Each building has certain features (specified systems) that need to be inspected and tested regularly by an independent qualified person (IQP). Once these features pass the inspections and tests, the IQP will issue the building owner (or owner’s representative) issues the BWOF). A copy is sent to the local Council and a copy is also sent to the building to be put on display. This process is then repeated annually to ensure the building is kept safe.
