A trusted fire and security provider for social housing and multi-tenant residencies

Fire safety and security solutions for tenants and landlords

Social housing and multi-tenant properties present large-scale fire and security challenges. Most deaths from fire occur in dwellings and those living in blocks of flats and social housing can be amongst the most vulnerable. 

To protect residents from the risk of fire, housing associations and landlords must meet strict regulations, including the updated Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the BS269 code of practice. Increasingly stringent regulations around security must also be met to protect residents from the risk of crime. 

At Ace, we understand that the safety of your residents is your number one priority, with upgrades to fire evacuation systems, CCTV upgrades, incident detection, and smart access control all high on the agenda.
