Following extensive surveys, last year, at 15 Tower Hamlets Schools we are now going back to do upgrading and fire door maintenance works. We will complete works in time for the Autumn term.
We are expanding rapidly with work across all of London and the home counties and are keen to increase our team with experienced, good quality tradesmen. Although industry qualifications and driving licence would be preferred they are not essential for the right experienced, reliable trustworthy individual. This job offers a great opportunity to move into a supervisor role and is based on long term employment. Price work will be available when skills and professionalism can be assured. Must have UTR number and CSC card.
Introducing London Fire Solution’s Mobile Workshop. Built to their own specification and with their client’s certified fire door maintenance needs in mind this purpose built workshop is now in use and is especially good for organisations where a multitude of doors need to be worked on or in a security conscious environment where working on site is preferable to removing the doors to another site.
As the vehicle is self-powered and has all the necessary tools and benches the operators are able to fulfil all the necessary repairs and upgrading works without taking fire doors off site. It also includes cooking, drinking and hand washing facilities plus a built-in flood light and extendable canopy so short winter days and bad weather conditions present no problems.
Commenting on this unique addition to LFS’s fleet of vehicles, Jim Hannon (Director) said “The advantage to our clients is that as well as being able to complete the work on site they themselves don’t need to provide much in the way of site welfare, we can simply pull up and start work”.
A busy week last week for CAM Specialist Support, surveying 25 single doors and 47 pairs of double doors at Ashford Shopping situated in the heart of Ashford, Kent.
We started last month with the whole scope of fire prevention services at various locations throughout London. Works, for Viridian Housing, are ongoing and include fire stopping, installation of new fire doors, upgrades and surveying.
We are in the process of installing fire stopping and new fire doors in the basement of DuCane Court in Balham. This impressive Art Deco Residential building was once ear-marked by Hitler as his HQ for when he invaded Blighty. Rumour has it that with some modifications this building was one of several that could be shaped like a Nazi Swaztika!
Our work is complete on the Spa Green Estate for Mears Islington. A whopping 80 traditional-style letter plates installed and fully tested – have made sure the original appearance has been maintained.
We are busy working on the Family Mosaic Housing Estates in South East London. Works (which are for valued client Axis Europe) include repairs and maintenance plus passive fire protection and certified upgrade works. Family Mosaic are one of the largest housing, care and support service providers in London and the South East, managing approximately 26,000 affordable rented homes.
We believe this incident demonstrates just how our people have saving lives at the heart of their business;
Whilst working at one of the Notting Hill Housing estates, Alan Kelly House, on behalf of Axis Europe one of our team had cause to save one of the residents’ lives through his swift actions and the implementation of his first aid training.
One of the residents – a wheel chair user – suffered extensive bleeding whilst accessing the gates (it’s suspected that he damaged the arteries due to colliding into the wall). Our quick-thinking operative quickly identified the potential danger to the gentleman’s life and managed to apply enough pressure to the wound for the 45 minutes it took for the ambulance to arrive. Having lost 2.5 pints of blood the paramedics and the client were quick to congratulate our operative on saving the gentleman’s life. The resident is now recovering in hospital and awaiting a blood transfusion. We wish him a speedy recovery.
We are continuing to keep the country’s finances safe with further projects in Canary Wharf and the City for the eminent UBS Bank – carrying our fire stopping and fire door installation work.
We’re delighted to be undertaking fire stopping works at 7 residential blocks for Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation Limited (KCTMO) who are responsible for the management of nearly 10,000 properties on behalf of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

We’re delighted to have achieved the Certified Quality System ISO9001, proving we deliver a consistently high level of service. Great to have this recognised by this widely respected measurement system! Here are the principles by which we have been measured – and have been successful;

The LFS team have successfully tested 110 traditional-style letter plates at BM TRADA for the Spa Green estate (located opposite the esteemed Sadler’s wells). This was in response to a request from the London Borough of Islington to maintain the original appearance of the letter plates. Nice to be keeping the detail traditional but safe!
All of our installers benefitted from further BM TRADA in fire door maintenance and installation this month. Our continual investment in staff training reinforces our position as specialists within an industry where training and skills acquisition are imperative.
LFS’s Director, Jim Hannon, is now an accredited and qualified Fire Door Inspector under the FDIS (Fire Door Inspection Scheme).

FDIS Certified Inspectors are uniquely qualified to undertake fire door inspections. Not only have they achieved a Diploma in fire doors but they have also had their knowledge assessed by Exova Warringtonfire.
We’re pleased to have completed a time critical project at Crofton Infant and Junior Schools in Bromley for Ridge & Partners LLP. The renewal of over 125 fire door sets and glazing replacements as well as fire stopping and several door upgrades were completed on time and will ensure the children have returned to schools that have maximum protection.
London Fire Solutions are now fully certified under the Considerate Constructors Scheme. As this is the recognised benchmark for how sites interact with their community we are delighted to receive this acknowledgement. We have worked hard to meet the 8-point code set by the scheme – all designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements and all have an impact on the environment we work in and the people we affect.
Working with high security market leaders Winkhaus and Mul-T-Locks we have successfully tested our own doorsets for Secured by Design and 30 minute fire resistance – creating enhanced security features on our fire door range.
Our fire doors play a major role in the fire safety and protection in various schools throughout London and the Home Counties. We’ve been busy inspecting, surveying and testing and in preparation for the Autumn term we will be renewing approximately 130 doors in at least 2 schools in Orpington.
We’ve also been asked to survey the safety of the existing fire doors at various schools within the Tower Hamlets area. Good to know that under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) these schools are ensuring procedures are in place to reduce the likelihood of fire and thereby protecting their students.
We’re delighted to start work on a major project with Mears Group for the London Borough of Sutton. Works include fire stopping and fire doors in 50 housing blocks across the estate – keeping the residents of Sutton safe!
