Installation, inspection, documentation and more
In addition to installations and preliminary inspections ready for approval by the relevant authority, we document our work and show you how to use your fire safety equipment. We also take care of everything else involved in setting up your fire safety equipment, like connecting it to your water system. We provide you with a turnkey system.
How CWS can benefit you
We work with our own experts and train them continuously, so you can expect a great deal of knowledge and high quality from us.
We know what’s required, whether it's a care home, office building or production site, as CWS works across all sectors.
Installing and approving equipment is one thing, but we’re also here for you when it comes to structural and technical measures, as well as any additional services you require
We draw on digital processes, so you, and we, always know how your equipment is working and if any maintenance is required.
No installation goes without planning
You wouldn't build a house without planning it first. The same goes for fire safety equipment. After all, it’s supposed to save lives. That’s why it’s essential to seek comprehensive advice and plan according to the specifications given by authorities, insurance companies and fire safety equipment manufacturers. Fire safety concepts and risk assessments form the basis. And if you don’t yet have any specific plans for a water extinguishing system, we’d be happy to provide them. Then you'll be ready to go.
It’s good to ask questions. Questions help you understand our work and help us understand your needs. We’ve probably covered some questions in our FAQs, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any more.
Should electricity, water or anything else be turned off during the installation?
That always depends on the equipment that we’re installing for you. If individual supply flows need to be cut off temporarily, we’ll let you know in advance and agree on a time frame with you.
Does CWS provide specialists to approve fire safety equipment?
Not necessarily, but we’d be happy to take care of that for you. We do also provide our own specialists who can approve third-party equipment within the regulatory framework.
How long does the installation take?
It can vary, as it depends on the type of equipment for one thing – fire extinguishers are typically quicker to install than an extinguishing system. On the other hand, you can quicken up the installation by preparing in advance. Detailed plans help us carry out inspections and assessments.
Can CWS handle the installation all by itself?
Yes. We usually carry out the installation and inspection ourselves with our experts and coordinate with other tradesmen if necessary. Nevertheless, please provide an available point of contact who we can reach out to if needed.
How important is a certificate for the installation of the equipment?
A certificate is essential because the relevant authorities require a declaration of conformity with the fire safety concept.
