Brighton Fire Alarms

Brighton Fire Alarms was formed in 1993 and over the years have seen many changes to our industry, we have had to adapt to all of these changes and regulatory reforms over the years and we find ourselves in a fortunate position. We have invested heavily in becoming one of the most respected company’s in our areas of expertise, offering our large client base and new clients, big or small a wide range of services to fit their needs in this ever changing industry.

So “why choose BFA” we think “why not choose us” we are very competitive on price in all our fields of expertise including the insurances and accreditations that our smaller competitors do not possess but still being able to offer the personal touch that our bigger competitors don’t seem to have.

Karl Tilling, Managing director of BFA “although I was not the founder of BFA the last 19 years working for the company has made it a massive part of my life and I am proud to be a part of it. Working up through the ranks facing challenges and overcoming them has made me understand that you are nothing without your team and that is what we are. We all work together to get the job done to the highest standard we can and early in my career, I was once told “don’t bring me problems, bring me answers” and between us that is what we do”.

I have used BFA for the past 15 years, in all that time I have only positive things to say about the company.

Having worked with Brighton Fire Alarms for 12 years in my management role I can happily recommend them as an exceptionally professional and customer focused organisation. Works orders are actioned immediately with highly competitive quotes and sound advice provided speedily. Works are always carried out to the highest of standards.

Brighton Sea Life will always put safety first, so it is for that reason that we contract Brighton Fire Alarms for all our fire and electrical safety needs. From risk assessments, surveys, installation, servicing and emergency call outs we have total confidence in the excellent service that we receive. Nothing is too much trouble and this was proven during their Christmas staff party 2016, when one of Brighton Fire Alarms Directors attended site on an emergency call out himself, despite hosting his own festive celebration at the time. I have absolutely nothing but great recommendations for the service this company provides, and I feel a lot safer with this company by my side.

Max Leviston, General manager, Brighton Sea Life
