FIRAS Approved Contractors

Over the 35 years, CLM Fireproofing has shown an outstanding commitment to fire protection best practice, compliance, and client satisfaction. We have been rewarded for this commitment with a FIRAS accreditation, a testament to the quality of our installation work and customer service. We work to maintain our position as leaders in the industry, continually investing in new fire protection products and enhancing our service delivery.

What is FIRAS Accreditation?

FIRAS accreditation is a third party certification scheme for active and passive fire protection companies can gain third party certification via the FIRAS accreditation scheme. The scheme has worked to actively improve compliance and installation standards since 1994. This assures clients whilst also improving processes within the construction industry. Requirements for FIRAS accreditations were developed in consultation with a number of regulatory bodies, including the Association of Specialist Fire Protection.

FIRAS-certified companies must conduct regular audits, showing that all installers, supervisors and technicians are not only competent in their respective fields but that their work remains 100% compliant. CLM Fireproofing are proactive in identifying areas of improvement, regularly carrying out internal audits with ‘destructive testing’. Operatives are also regularly assessed by FIRAS inspectors, which can include inspections of their installation work. This ensures that every aspect of their passive fire protection systems are of the highest possible quality.

The FIRAS Accreditation register

The FIRAS register contains the details of all certified fire protection companies, as required by the FIRAS scheme. These companies are subject to regular accreditation checks, to ensure that they remain compliant with industry standards. Companies on this register are approved by several trade associations, assuring clients that they will maintain the highest standards of installation and practical competence.

Testimonials/Case Study Spotlights

“It was a pleasure working with the team and we are extremely grateful for their support.”

The CLM Team volunteered at Henry Fawcett School after matching on the @Hyde Group portal #MatchMyProject. We relocated the school library, setup furniture, categorised and displayed all the children’s books and supplies. Access to the library for all 260 pupils was previously inaccessible and in an unheated space in the school. The children were unable to have regular and comfortable access to the books to support their love of reading and phonics development. We also provided soft furnishings and additional décor to make the space comfortable and exciting for the children to spend time and read in.


“Very prompt responses and really lovely members of CLM who attended site and installed the computer. Very professional company and the computer and printer was exactly what we asked for.”

CLM donated a brand new state of the art PC and Printer for Britannia Court aged care scheme in Chichester. Our IT Technician attended site, installed and gave basic use training to benefit the 65 residents who may not be able to afford to buy a PC themselves. Residents that have never used a PC could experience the benefits of the digital world and be able to use different digital platforms.


“CLM work at the scheme and the result has been outstanding. We now have a new patio area that not only looks good but greatly improves the look of the entrance to the communal lounge and is now also fully accessible for all of our residents.”

The requirement of the project was to provide the materials and practical skills to turn a grassed area into a patio area that would be more suitable for the resident’s needs. Using our internal workforce’s additional skills, we were able to secure appropriately trained resource and source materials to design and deliver the required outcomes.


CLM participated in the ‘Sponsor a Christmas Tree’ campaign and partnered with The Boury Academy.

We provided and delivered a 10 foot Christmas Tree allowing 750 performers at the Academy to enjoy Christmas Cheer. The Studios a safe, warm and welcoming place to be. By helping us to bring festive cheer we hope that it is somewhere even more welcoming and friendly for our community to be at during the school holidays.

Amazing Christmas tree delivered in time for Christmas and the Young Peoples show. A huge thank you for bringing Christmas Cheer to the young people and families at The Boury Academy!
