Richard Thorpe Fire Safety Services
Our fire extinguisher services encompass everything including the supply, installation and servicing. We follow British regulations and make sure to always comply with British Standard BS 5306-3:2017. All of our fire extinguishers have service labels attached. We are happy to provide service agreements and can provide servicing for however long you need it, whether it be 1 year, 5 years or 10 years. We sell fire extinguishers outright, because in the long run, you will get far better value for money. Your safety is our number one concern and we are happy to provide advice when required. Unlike most other companies, none of our engineers are on sales commission or have sales targets to meet, so everything we tell you will always be honest and genuine.
For commercial customers, we always offer service agreements as this is often required for insurance purposes. These agreements can be cancelled at any time, and this is unlike most other companies who want to tie you in to multiple-year contracts. Your safety is our number one concern and we are happy to service your fire extinguishers without a service agreement.
We supply, install, and test fire alarm installations. Specialising in HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupation), nursing homes, offices, and domestic houses, our installation team provide neat installations and conceal cabling where possible. We carry out the routine testing of fire alarms to British Standard requirements, and are happy to advise you of your responsibilities regarding weekly testing etc.
We offer fire safety training, carried out by our own ex-fire officer. This training can be carried out at your premises, at a time to suit your working requirements. Training normally lasts for one and a half hours, ending with a hands-on operation of a fire extinguisher. All participating students will receive a certificate.
Emergency lighting is suitable for offices, factories and nursing homes and will provide you with illumination should your power fail. This will enable everyone at your premises to evacuate safely when an emergency occurs. We install and test emergency lighting and whether you require a single light or multiple units, we’ll be able to fit it for you. If required, we can carry out the routine discharge testing to British Standards requirements.
We also supply and install all other fire safety equipment. We can supply the full range of fire safety signs which meet current legislation. If required, we can visit your premises to carry out a survey of your requirements and identify the best ways to prepare your property for an emergency. If you would like us to supply signs to your specifications, this can also be arranged. We also offer a range of associated fire safety equipment such as fire cabinets, fire horns and fire bells.
