RES provides a range of fire protection services for shops and retail facilities across the South of England.


We understand that each retail environment will have its own unique challenges and requirements, whether you own or manage a small shop, retail unit or even a shopping centre, RES has the experience and know-how to service and maintain all of the premises fire safety systems and measures.

As the owner or manager of a shop or retail outlet, it is your responsibility to protect employees and customers in the event of a fire.  Shops and retail premises present a number of potential fire risks such as the storage of flammable materials, cleaning equipment, faulty electrical equipment, lighting, product packaging or even arson.

There are stringent rules in place for premises which can be found in various legislation such as Building Regulations and The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 as well as British Standards and specific premises related guidance documents.

There are five main actions you need to take:

  1. Undertake and regularly review the premises Fire Risk Assessment.
  2. Install the necessary fire safety systems, equipment and measures.
  3. Train staff (and or provided information to occupiers) on the prevention of fire and in the premises fire procedures.
  4. Service and maintain all fire safety systems, equipment and measures at the relevant intervals to current British Standards.
  5. Keep a record of all of the premises fire safety related information and maintain a fire log book for the premises.


Whether you need to service and maintain an existing fire detection and alarm system or repair or replace a fire safety system or your fire extinguishers need servicing or perhaps require advice regarding your premises fire risk assessment, RES is well placed to full fill your fire safety needs. All our work is tailored to our customer needs.
