Fire Alarm System installers who complete on time!

Very easy to employ time and again

RDS Fire and Security deliver fire detection system installations across the South of England. These range from small additions to existing systems to complex networked installations. We are fully conversant with conventional and addressable fire alarm systems, air sampling and gas suppression. And we also manage your portable extinguishers, supply, installation and maintenance. Expect:

  • Projects completed on time.
  • The highest professional standards.
  • Full end to end managed service.

Naturally, you get Risk Assessments, Method statements and all the Fire & Security accreditations you’d expect. Packaged and ready for you. You’ll never chase a BS7858 2012 or IPAF with us.

Reliable partners who get the job done

It’s simple, we know. A new building cannot open without the Fire Alarm system – installed, commissioned and compliant!

RDS make that happen. You get a program of work designed to fit the deadline. We complete as much work as possible early on… so the pressure is off as the deadline looms!

Your project is delivered, signed off and the paperwork with you… Your building will open to the public on time.

We’re here to make life easy for project managers… That’s why you’ll use us again and again!

I find RDS to be a company that’s dependable, provides an extremely high level of installation works, is conscious and proactive in managing health and safety in the workplace and provides well completed documentation for all works.

They are very easy to employ time and again and I would highly recommend them for small or large projects.
