Fire Sprinkler Installations was established in October 2001 by Terry Gaffney and Dean Hodgkinson who have in excess of 67 years’ combined experience in design and installations of Automatic Fixed Fire Protection.
Although Fire Sprinkler Installations is an East London based company, we have successfully carried out contracts in Richards Bay, Port Elizabeth, Queenstown, Mthatha, Grahamstown, Durban and Johannesburg. Due to the amount of successful contracts completed in the Port Elizabeth area, we decided to open a branch in Port Elizabeth in 2010 and this branch is currently managed by Arch De Jongh.
Fire Sprinkler Installations work closely with: Architects; Consultants; Developers; Main Contractors; Mechanical and Electrical Contractors; Factory Personal and other role players to provide a cost effective, reliable and superior quality installation. We are committed to provide our clients with an unrivalled service, ensuring all matters are dealt with proactively and professionally within the desired timescale.
Fire Sprinkler Installations is approved and listed by the Automatic Sprinkler Inspection Bureau (A.S.I.B.) as a SUPERVISING INSTALLER. This assists in protecting the clients’ interests in that an A.S.I.B. listed company will comply with proven standards and the latest developments in Automatic Fire Protection Design. We currently have three certified designers and are in the process of training another student to qualify in due course.
We are aware of all systems and procedures relating to health, safety and environmental requirements, with regards to the OSH act, and have received the highest accolades throughout our various contracts with Mercedes Benz of S.A.
We employ approximately 81 people of whom 66 are PDI’s in permanent or on fixed term contracts depending on the economy in the area. Our design work is produced in house by qualified personal on a CAD system. We have a fully stocked store on our premises that assists turnaround time and
also compliments our 24 hour call out service.
We are also committed to giving back to the community and assisting 100% beneficiary compliant organisations.
