Fire & Security for Listed Buildings

Bespoke solutions to meet the unique requirements faced by custodians of UK’s historic homes and estates. Fire and security measures that are perfectly suited to heritage sites.

As a team, we have experience working on fire and security for the following historic estates and museums...

Fire Protection for Heritage Sites

P50 Fire Extinguisher

The P50 entirely replaces water, dry powder, CO2 and foam extinguishers. Meaning there only needs to be one type of fire extinguisher for most types of fire. Reducing clutter and maintaining the historical charm of the UK’s estates.

Wireless Fire Alarms

Avoid drilling through original wood and stone walls and beams to install wired fire alarms, and choose fully wireless systems that work over a dedicated mesh network. No mess, no damage and no external trunking attached to walls.

Automatic Heat & Smoke Alert Systems

Don’t rely on human interaction to protect heritage sites. Our Cygnus Wireless systems can operate entirely autonomously, meaning the second heat or smoke is detected the fire brigade can be alerted.

Outbuilding Protection

Wireless fire alarms operate perfectly in premises that are not connected. Farmhouses, stables, kitchens, guest houses, chapels, can all be linked to one network. If fire occurs in any of the protected buildings managers will instantly know where, and the fire brigade will be alerted. Leaving no room for error.

Intelligent Remote Monitoring

Perfect for National Trust and English Heritage sites. Intelligent Remote Monitoring by Nimbus is a premium option that allows facility managers and caretakers to monitor an entire estate from a remote location. The Nimbus Control Room Monitor alerts staff in seconds that a fire has been detected. Sending push notifications and popup alerts to the control room desktop and to the mobile phones of staff. The system tells user the room, and the location of the fire within the room, while also giving users the ability to instantly alert emergency services.

Thermal Imaging Cameras

The latest in heat detecting cameras can spot an increase in temperature by the degree, and trigger the fire alarm to an exact location. When beam detectors don't cut it, or you can't rely on traditional fire or smoke detectors. Use thermal imaging cameras to instantly alert staff to a potential fire.

Specialist Security Solutions for Heritage Sites

Historical sites in the UK are some of the most targeted properties in the UK for burglary and theft, the most common of which is lead roof theft or copper wiring. Both of which can be incredibly expensive to repair and replace, and can sometimes leave the property with irreparable damage.

Prevention measures for heritage sites should prioritise discretion and flexibility. Bearing in mind that the same access should be completely open during the day for visitors.


Using state-of-the-art cutting-edge technology we know there's a problem before you do. We combine intruder alarms with remote CCTV monitoring to alert you and the authorities immediately if there is an unauthorised visitor to your estate.

You also have complete transparency using the system via a mobile phone app to view your estate at any time.


By inviting thousands of visitors to your estate every day, you run the risk of unknowingly allowing known danger vehicles into your premises. ANPR can instantly flag problem vehicles, and even refuse entry if combined with access systems.

This solution allows your security team to alert the authorities, or deal with the issue on site.


Similar to the use of Wireless Fire Alarms, CCTV must not be overly obvious to protect the charm of historic sites in the UK. In the same vein, they must be present to deter and capture nefarious and anti-social activity.

We have worked on many historical sites in the UK that have used CCTV to protect their visitors as well as their estate. Encouraging more footfall and increasing revenue.
