As one of the UK’s leading fire design component experts, FDS understands that innovative fire safety design helps contractors reduce both system and component costs as well as installation time. That expertise means that we have helped contractors to complete some of the largest commercial and residential projects in the UK, helping them fit the right fire safety systems to meet their needs and offering them all the design and installation support they require.

Our Experience

Thanks to our knowledge and experience, we’ve helped contractors to make savings by eliminating unnecessary smoke shaft venting systems, sprinkler systems and other expensive fire systems – and all without ever compromising on fire safety. We have helped contractors to save £millions, and as any contractor knows, an ability to find significant financial savings can be a make or break in winning a job.

Design & Installation

Over the years, our impressive system design and installation services have evolved to incorporate cutting-edge methodologies that allow us to commission smoke control systems without power supplies and assist in the phased handover of projects to clients. What’s more, we understand the importance of achieving completion on time and have never missed a deadline, whether on accelerated programmes or phased handovers, so you can be completely confident that whatever the challenges of the scheme, we can always add value and work to programme and budget.
