We can provide aspirating smoke detection, which can detect fires at a very early stage, before the visual signs of a fire become apparent.
This solution is designed to protect high risk and valuable locations. Aspirating systems can be integrated with traditional fire detection systems and aesthetics modified to be sympathetic to the environments in which they are installed.
Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
We are the UK’s leading designers, installers and maintainers of Ansul R-102® systems, awarded the Distributor of the Year award 6 times. Our staff have extensive knowledge of fire suppression systems developed specifically for commercial catering environments.
Commercial kitchens utilise high temperature cooking oils, slow cooking appliances and deep-fat fryers all of which represent a difficult challenge to maintaining a safe working environment and compliance to H&S legislation.
Disabled WC Alarms
We offer a range of fully compliant BS8300:2009 Disabled WC Alarm Systems available either as stand alone alarms or systems that can be integrated into our range of Emergency Voice Communication Systems.
The Equality Act (formerly The Disability Discrimination Act) made it the responsibility of all companies, nationwide, to ensure that access to buildings and services is available to everyone.
We install dry and wet risers to ensure the availability of large quantities of water to the emergency services when attending to a fire in a building over 18 metres in height.
To ensure the effectiveness of this solution, risers must be tested annually to ensure the system is sufficiently pressurised to deliver the water when needed.
We can design, install and maintain emergency lighting systems which are an essential element of a building’s fire safety strategy.
In the event of a fire affecting the power supply to your building and endangering your occupants, emergency lighting luminaires will activate and guide your people to the appropriate emergency exits, enabling a safe and efficient evacuation.
Emergency Voice Alarms
From our extensive experience working with commercial and residential properties, we are experts in the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of integrated Emergency Voice Communication Systems (EVCS).
EVCS or Disabled Refuge Systems are designed for use in buildings that contain refuge areas. The intercom system allows emergency services to be in constant contact with the people in the refuge areas who seek assistance.
Fire Detection and Alarm Systems
A reliable and effective Fire Alarm system is essential for all premesis. Our Fire & Security division has a leading reputation in the design, installation, commissioning, maintenance and monitoring of fire detection systems. We provide bespoke and innovative solutions for our customers.
We offer both conventional and analogue addressable solutions utilising the latest technologies to protect what matters most.
In addition to providing open protocol fire detection solutions, we offer specialist, managed protocol solutions for specific risk applications. We offer cost effective solutions designed for challenging environments and critical system risks.
We supply, install and maintain fire extinguishers at a competitive price. We are fully compliant with BS 5306-3, and all extinguishers we supply are British Standard Kite Marked to ensure quality.
Professional maintenance of fire extinguishers is a vital part of any business’ fire safety strategy, understanding that the integrity of these systems need to be maintained to protect the safety of not only your premises and assets but also your employees and residents.
Fire Risk Assessments
Our highly qualified and expereiced risk assessors are experienced in identifying and addressing the needs of all users of your premises and providing advice about how you can comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Regulations require that any commercial premise e.g. an office, shop or hotel with more than 5 occupants, must ensure that a thorough Fire Risk Assessment has been carried out by a Competent Person and is reviewed at regular intervals.
Additionally, our Health, Safety & Compliance specialists at William Martin & Quantum Compliance can offer a highly specialist fire consultancy should you have the requirement.
Gaseous Extinguishing Systems
We install, maintain and service all types of fire suppression systems to a high standard compliant with relevant fire safety regulations.
Gaseous fire suppression systems extinguish electrical fires by releasing a concentration of gas, to remove oxygen and extinguishing the fire. Most commonly found in server rooms, computer suites and communication rooms a gas suppression system protects the integral functions of your business.

Our engineers can inspect and test hydrants annually to ensure that water pressure and flow rate are adequate.
Fire hydrants are an integral part of our national fire safety infrastructure. They are utilised by the fire brigade to access water from the local mains supply.
Although, hydrants are typically installed, owned and maintained by water companies or fire authorities if a hydrant is located on private or commercial property, maintenance is the responsibility of the owner.
Residential and Commercial Sprinkler Systems
From initial design, installation and commissioning through to ongoing maintenance, we help to protect people and property with a fully compliant sprinkler system.
A well designed and installed sprinkler system will automatically detect heat from a fire, sound the alarm and release water directly onto the source of the fire. While fire detection systems alert inhabitants to a fire, sprinklers actively fight fire to limit its advancement.
Residential Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Our KitchenSafe fire suppression system for domestic & residential kitchens is third party tested and approved to UL300A. The KitchenSafe System is a fully automatic domestic and residential fire suppression system which uses state of the art digital technology to sense and respond to high temperatures and fire conditions.
This is the ideal solution to protect cook top areas for assisted living, student accommodation and domestic properties where the cook top is a major risk for either occupants or insurance providers.
Room Integrity Testing
We conduct Room Integrity Tests, or RITs to ensure that in the event of a fire a room’s containment is sufficient to ensure the effectiveness of a Gasous Extinguishing System.
This is an integral part of fire safety strategy, Room Integrity Testing ensures an extinguishing agent will achieve the correct concentration and maintains it for a minimum retention time value.
Sauna Suppression Systems
Our SaunaSafe system is the world’s first fire suppression system specifically developed for the unique environment of a sauna.
Air from the sauna is monitored whilst the Sauna is in operation, and in the event of smoke being detected the SaunaSafe will operate an audible alarm, and shut down the power to the Sauna heater, with the emphasis on preventing fire. Should the smouldering product catch fire, the system will release a water mist directly onto the heater and also into and across the internal parts of the Sauna.
SaunaSafe has achieved third party approval from the world renowned Danish Fire Laboratories (DFL) testing house in Svendborg and by global insurance giants, Zurich.
Water Mist Systems
Our water mist systems offer an alternative fire fighting solution for general applications such as hotels, office blocks and industrial applications.
Water mist systems are installed in the same way as a sprinkler system. The difference is that in operation micron sized water droplets are discharged over a wider surface area. By rapidly converting energy to steam the water mist starves the fire of the oxygen it needs to burn.
We ensure the safety and protection of your people and property. Our ongoing commitment to compliance and best practice ensures that every industry standard and all current legislation is adhered to, providing you with peace of mind throughout our partnership. Consisting of five established and complementary brands, we are experts in all aspects of fire safety and security, life and property protection.
