We ensure all your fire protection equipment operates effectively and complies with all relevant Australian legislation and industry standards.

The Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 requires periodic inspection, testing and maintenance for all fire protection and fire fighting equipment. Ensuring the reliability and performance of fire protection systems as they age is crucial in meeting fire safety design objectives.


To comply with all Australian Standards, testing and inspection of all fire safety equipment must be carried out by a competent person with relevant qualifications. Our experts provide the knowledge and expertise to ensure your fire safety is maintained to the highest level. To maintain compliance, we provide a detailed registry of all equipment, test results, and due dates, as well as follow up reminders of next test (sms, email, or call).
