A1 Fire Protection offers

  • We can advise on, supply and install a wide range of fire extinguishers, which all carry the British Standards Institution Kitemark label, devised in 1903 and used on equipment where safety is paramount.

    It pays to make the right decision according to your environment, because different types of fire extinguishers are suitable for different situations and materials.

    Water fire extinguishers can be used on burning paper, wood and plastics. If you are likely to need to put out fires containing flammable liquids, such as paraffin, petrol or oil, perhaps in a workshop, garage or factory, you will need a foam fire extinguisher, which will also put out fires involving paper, wood and plastics, as above.

    Foam extinguishers are therefore more versatile – and more expensive - than water extinguishers, but still not recommended for electrical apparatus.

  • We can supply and install a wide range of fire alarm systems, appropriate for domestic and commercial settings.

    We can supply all you need, from detection equipment to control panels and electronic sounders and bells to wiring and batteries.

    We work closely with Haes Systems who have offered simple, reliable and affordable fire alarm systems for more than 40 years and who are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers.

  • With our motto ‘To protect life and property’ in mind, we are pleased to be able to supply fire blankets for a wide range of scenarios.

    People often think of non-flammable fire blankets as something that will smother flames on property, to stop a small fire. These consist of a fire retardant material which smothers the fire, cutting out its oxygen supply.

    However, there are also larger fire blankets which can be easily pulled out and wrapped around someone whose clothes are on fire, perhaps in a laboratory or industrial setting. These are often made of wool and sometimes treated with a flame retardant fluid.

    Fire blankets are a key part of a fire protection package that we would recommend for domestic and residential settings, as well as commercial or industrial environments.

  • When confronted with a fire, it is essential that those in charge of a property have not only a plan to escape but one which is clearly marked.

    As part of your enquiry about fire safety at your school, workplace, residential or commercial building, we will talk you through all the types of signage you will need.

    This will include a sign to highlight where the alarm or equipment is and how to use them, other signage to show how to reach the fire exit and another to mark the designated fire assembly point, so that everyone in the building can be accounted for within the building’s emergency planning routine.

    We will work closely with you on this important aspect of your fire safety policy, using our experience to ensure that your signage meetings current legislation.

  • When fire breaks out, it is a legal requirement in non-domestic buildings to have emergency lighting, under the Regulatory reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, as a guide to emergency routes and exits.

    Non-domestic buildings must be safe at all times, even in the event of the main power supply failing, making emergency back-up lighting essential.

    For this requirement, we supply and install LED lighting, which are low energy, highly efficient and have a long life, typically 10 years, making them more environmentally sound than alternatives. They also come on instantly, which is vital in an emergency situation.

    These will need checking regularly, which we would do as part of a maintenance contract.

  • Detecting a fire in its early stages is a vital aspect of not only staying safe but of minimising damage to property. Smoke detectors are an essential early warning sign of a fire and will increase the chances of escaping the building.

    For this vital aspect of fire safety, we supply and install smoke detectors from Apollo.

    Using these manufacturers, you can be assured of the finest quality.

    Established in 1980, it is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of smoke detectors, modules and notification devices and acquired Royal Appointment status in the UK by Her Majesty the Queen for services to royal households. Devices can also be found in places such as The Kremlin, in Moscow..

  • Buildings are compartmentalised to delay the spread of fire from one area to another. These compartments are usually linked by fire doors to allow the flow of traffic around the building. Fire doors have two important functions in a fire; when closed they form a barrier to stop the spread of fire and when opened they provide a means of escape.

    A well designed timber fire door will delay the spread of fire and smoke without causing too much hindrance to the movement of people and goods.

    Every fire door is therefore required to act as a barrier to the passage of smoke and/or fire to varying degrees depending upon its location in a building and the fire hazards associated with that building.

    A fire door required to provide resistance to the passage of a well-developed fire must be fitted with intumescent seals. These seals remain dormant under normal conditions but expand greatly in the heat of a fire to close the gap between the door and its frame.

    As smoke spread is an even greater threat to life and property than flames, particularly in the early stages of a fire, fire doors should also be fitted with a ‘cold smoke’ seal to prevent the ingress of smoke around the door edges. Combined smoke and intumescent seals protect from all aspects of fire in a single unit.
