Over the last few years, we have been developing one area in particular, spending a lot of time, resources, and energy to become a leading company in this space. We are of course talking about fire safety and protection. We are proud to say that we are now certified by BM Trada to protect commercial buildings from fire hazards by installing fire doors in Manchester and the surrounding areas. BM Trada is an audit and certification organization that helps regulate the national and international standards of safety in buildings, including ISO 17021, ISO 17024, and ISO 17065.
