Here at KDE Ltd, we're always working to offer our customers the best, safest and most comprehensive service available. We like to be pro-active about making sure that our experienced team are up to date with relevant qualifications and certification, to give customers complete peace of mind.

That's why we're delighted to announce that we've just gained BAFE accreditation, which is awarded by an independent organisation.

What is BAFE accreditation?

BAFE is the third party, independent registration body for the fire protection industry. It's their job to assess and approve companies around the UK to recognised standards, and companies who meet these standards are then allowed to display the BAFE logo to prove their competence and registration.  

Companies registered with BAFE include installers, manufacturers and maintainers  of fire protection products, from small businesses to international organisations. The BAFE mark shows that all these companies have invested in quality training and systems and have achieved their registration, monitored by regular assessments. For clients, this means they can be sure that the suppliers they choose are competent and trained.

What does it mean for KDE Ltd?

The scheme consists of four modules, each of while has to be passed independently. KDE Ltd has been approved for all four modules - system design, installation, commissioning and handover/maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems.Here at KDE Ltd, we've already got years of experience in designing and installing fire alarm systems. We've now had that expertise recognised by being independently assessed and approved for the official Fire Detection and Alarm System Scheme. BAFE say that this scheme "recognises the importance of providing compliant systems while at the same time minimising false alarms".

If you'd like to talk to us about a fire detection or alarm system, we'd love to hear from you on 01928 711444.
