Ensuring Complete Coverage and Protection

    For decades, fire alarm systems have helped people escape from immediate danger, providing the crucial early alerts to the presence of a fire. In England alone, you’re up to 8x more likely to die from a fire if you don’t have a working fire alarm.

    Chris Lewis Group have been the South East’s most trusted fire alarm installer for over 25 years. Since 1993, we’ve helped property owners make an immediate response to fire, protecting their buildings, assets and people when flames ignite.
