Integrated Fire Safety Systems achieves coveted LPS 1014 certified status

14 December 2020

INTEGRATED FIRE Safety Systems – a specialist when it comes to the design, installation, commissioning and servicing of fire safety systems – has just attained Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1014 certified status. This is part of the company’s ongoing strategy to expand its list of accreditations and certifications and provide customers with the reassurance that the business complies with and correctly manages the system design, installation, commissioning and servicing of fire detection and alarm systems.

“Following an influx of projects and service contracts, including for NHS sites, apartment blocks and high-end residentials, we felt it was the right time to apply for this certification,” explained James Broadest, director at Integrated Fire Safety Systems. “It ensures that our products and services have met, and will continue to meet, the necessary standards through regular audits conducted by the Loss Prevention Certification Board.”

Part of BRE Global, the Loss Prevention Certification Board sets the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. The LPS 1014 certification itself sets a benchmark for consistency, competency and professionalism in the industry.  

“We’re thrilled to have achieved the LPS 1014 certification,” enthused Broadest. “We regard it as the highest level of certification achievable within this sector. Unlike other schemes, LPS 1014 demonstrates and audits competence for the design, supply, installation, commissioning, service and maintenance functions. It’s a key business driver for us.”

He continued: “LPS 1014 not only instils huge confidence in our customers, but also puts us in a great position for specifiers looking to select reliable and competent contractors to ensure adequate and compliant fire safety systems are put in place, maintained and serviced by firms with a proven track record to undertake such work.”

Projects carried out by Integrated Fire Safety Systems will be independently audited by the Building Research Establishment, with the auditors specifically looking for a demonstrable record-keeping system for all areas covered in the standard. Companies must demonstrate a long-term track record of performance, as well as evidence of reliability and stability.

Integrated Fire Safety Systems are members of the Fire Industry Association, the Fire and Security Association, the Fire Protection Association and the Electrical Contractors Association and presently in the process of gaining BAFSA and Construction Line Gold accreditation.
