LPCB 1301 Accreditation for Fire Sprinklers

Did I mention we are the only domestic and residential fire sprinkler installer with the LPCB 1301 accreditation?

Who are the LPCB?

The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) has been working with industry and government for more than 100 years to set the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB is a certification brand of BRE Global Limited whose mission is to protect people, property and the planet.

BRE (formerly the Building Research Establishment before privitisation in 1972) is an independent and impartial, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, offering expertise in every aspect of the built environment and associated industries. They help create better, safer and more sustainable products and buildings – and support the innovation needed to achieve this.

Performance claims for fire and security products and services that are not backed up by third-party approval can be misleading.

Why choose a company with LPCB 1301 accreditation

Correctly specifying and installing fire resisting systems and fire protection construction products – often called passive fire protection products – is fundamental to fire safety in buildings. A frequent concern of anyone investing in or specifying a fire sprinkler is in knowing whether a product will perform in accordance with the stated specifications.
