The Best Fire Protection Company
We Are One of the Leaders in the Fire Protection and Security Industry

About Us

After many years working as a head manager in the same industry, Gary Wilcox decided to start working for himself. In 2003 he established Aarhus Fire Protection and became Executive director at his own company.
Day by day, step by step, working tirelessly, Gary began to realise his dream – to be one of the leaders in the field of Fire Protection.
Thankfully for his fabulous flair and tremendous talent, he collected the best team he needed in one place. With his energetic and inexhaustible team and his accomplishment gained over the years, Aarhus Fire Protection achieved the highest standards in the Fire Safety industry.
Now, the company is proud to offer the best products and services at the highest British standards all over the country.
With wise leaders such as Gary Wilcox (Executive Director with over 35 years of experience) and Tony Hartley (Managing Director with over 30 years of experience), the energetic team of Aarhus Fire Protection realised uncountable successful projects. They worked tirelessly, following the rules of the British Government, and developed and led the company among the top of the best Fire Protection providers.
We have worked and have implemented fire protection to large companies in the UK such as ITV, Peel Holdings, Bruntwood and many other significant operations. But also, as an independent company, we offer the same high-quality service to the small individual companies.  

We Are

Qualified to Check If Your Business Complies With the Fire Door Safety Regulations?

Aarhus Fire is one of the few fire door inspectors in the UK that can help you find out if your fire door is ultimately and fully protecting you. This is very important because fire doors are among the crucial components to help you survive a fire. Many people think that the inspector's job is to measure the gaps around doors and other related things, but honestly, they are wrong because the truth is quite different.

Do you have the right fire door that will protect your property in case of fire?

Precisely here is where the inspectors come to the rescue. They are the ones who will inspect and tell you exactly whether your door will protect you in case of fire or everything you own will burn to the ground until firefighters arrive. They will tell you precisely what to improve and fix if you come one day face to face with the evil disaster that does not forgive.

Choosing fire doors can be very difficult. But we must bet on a quality shield that will be the irreplaceable guard to protect us when a destroying fire occurs. Therefore, when choosing doors, make sure they are certificated under a third-party certification scheme.
