  • Fire alarms: Design & Installation


M&G Fire Protection (Essex) Ltd. provides a one-of-a-kind design service for all of your fire alarm needs. Our experts have extensive experience in the design of fire alarm systems and have received comprehensive training on the latest requirements from recognised governing bodies.

To assist us in selecting the best equipment and system for your needs, we:

  • Undertake site visits.
  • Carry out accompanied site visits.
  • Discuss local legislation requirements with fire officers and local authorities.
  • Arrange for samples.
  • Complete design certificates.
  • Arrange and carry out full commissioning of the system.
  • Offer a full quotation package.

We also stay up to date on the current legislation. Did you know, for example, that the 2013 edition of BS5839 Part – 1 has been withdrawn and replaced by the 2017 version?

This code of practise contains guidelines that, if implemented, would assure compliance with current good practise. Variations are permitted, but must be supported by strong engineering principles. The new code includes significant new sections on monitoring and integrity, detector type selection, false alarms, and cable grade. As a result, system design should be performed by a qualified individual to ensure that the requirements of BS 5839 Part – 1 – 2017 are complied with. We can design and provide the best system that will conform to all current legislation.


For a fire alarm system to function properly, it must be installed by qualified experts in order to protect you, your building, and its contents. Our specialists can install a wide range of systems, from basic conventional systems to huge network systems suited to all types of businesses.

At each stage of the installation, care is taken to keep to the original Design Plan and meet the requirements of BS5839-1:2017.

We have access to products and software from the majority of the UK’s largest and most popular manufacturers, and as an independent firm, we are not bound to a specific supplier. This means that we can provide unbiased advise and recommend the best system for your needs and budget.
