Temporary Closure

If your building is temporarily closed, due to the coronavirus and Government restrictions, it is important to consider what action is needed to safeguard your fire protection systems such as the building sprinkler system and automatic fire protection.

Whilst the Government restrictions remain in place, Zurich automatically accepts that weekly testing of the sprinkler system bell test, pump(s) running and ancillary equipment is no longer considered to be essential.

We are here to help you, and there are separate guides available that cover the broader risk management considerations for closing down the building or part of the site. Please see our Zurich website to download these documents.
