Access to fire alarm panel blocked by landlord

Good morning. I'm wondering if you could give me some advice.
I rent a shop off a landlord.
He recently put a coded gate up the alleyway where my fire alarm control panel is situated and is refusing to give me the code to access it. (We've had access to the alleyway for 38yrs and been able to access the control panel until recently)
Is this against the law? Would you know if I can contest this.
If it's not something you can advise on, would you be able to point me in the right direction?
Many thanks in advance.

Does he do the weekly testing and arrange the 6 monthly  servicing for you? If you are expected to do it you need access. Also if it's activated you need access to reset it (if not a fire) and to see where the fire is (if it is and a detector triggered it not you).

Your Fire & Rescue Service enforces Business Fire Safety and can assist if you feel this obstruction could present a risk or non compliance.
