BlazeMaster® Fire Protection Systems have long been an approved solution in the UK for both retrofits and new builds. Our CPVC fire sprinkler piping provides reliable protection and cost-savings in a variety of buildings across the globe, including hotels, schools, hospitals, and high-rise buildings.

While steel fire protection systems have been the traditional choice for retrofits and residential installations, UK certifications held by the BlazeMaster brand prove that our CPVC piping system delivers the same, if not heightened, reassurance when compared with steel.
