FIRAS Certification : What is it and why does it matter?

Proud to be a FIRAS Certified Company

Started in 1994 FIRAS Certification has been instrumental in improving standards of installation of fire protection products and systems. This offers many benefits to the construction industry and clients alike.

What is FIRAS Certification

FIRAS is a third party certification scheme for companies who install both passive and active fire protection systems. 

As part of the FIRAS Schemes, certificated companies are required to employ, on a permanent or contract basis, competent supervisors and technicians (Operators). The technical and practical competence of these operators is assessed by FIRAS Inspectors in the trade disciplines for which certification is held. A register of competent employees is maintained for each certificated company, which is regularly reviewed to ensure that the company maintains a competent workforce whose abilities remain current with the work scope the company provides.

FIRAS Certificated Installer Companies are subject to ongoing random inspection of their installation work. There is also an annual audit of their office systems by FIRAS Inspectors to ensure that compliance with the Scheme is maintained.

Why choose a FIRAS certificated installation contractor?

To gain FIRAS Certification the contractor must have current proven technical and practical competence in the fields for which they are certified. This provides assurance to the client that the contractor is competent to undertake the project. Sprinklers Direct are FIRAS certified for installation of Residential and Domestic Sprinkler Systems.

The FIRAS Register

This register contains the details of companies who are certificated installers of fire protection in accordance with the requirements of the FIRAS Schemes. Each FIRAS Certificated company is required to continue to demonstrate compliance with industry standards, material/product manufacturer installation instructions in order to assure clients that the fire protection installed by them is correct to specification and will afford the required fire protection.
