Installer Schemes

Installer Certification Schemes

We offer a range of schemes designed to provide confidence that fire protection products and systems are installed correctly to good standards of workmanship and within the scope of approval for the specified product.

Correct installation of fire protection products is vital if they are to perform as intended and provide the specified fire performance. Incorrect installation can lead to non-performance, premature failure, loss of insurance cover and potential loss of life, property, stock and business interruption.
To be effective in preventing or controlling the spread of fire, or for protection of structural elements from the effects of fire, these products need to be installed properly within their approved field of application. Failure to do so can compromise fire performance with consequences for property, life safety and commercial risk.

Our installer certification schemes together with our product certification provides a robust system that gives confidence to specifiers, contractors, enforcement authorities, regulators, and end users that proven products, together with good installation, will achieve the required level of fire performance.

The IFC Certification Quality Mark enables installer companies to demonstrate the superiority of their installations. The following is an indication of the wide-ranging schemes currently available:

The process involves auditing of an installer company’s office and site based activities, competence assessment of operatives and supervisors and certificates of conformity.
