Colt Service

The UK’s No.1 for smoke control maintenance and servicing.

The failure to maintain smoke ventilation systems can be dire, because whilst fire grabs more headlines, smoke is the real killer. In fact, more than twice as many people die from smoke inhalation than they do from burns. Often smoke incapacitates so rapidly that victims are unable to make it to an otherwise accessible exit.

That’s why you need the UK’s No. 1 for smoke control system maintenance.


Our expertise

Having pioneered smoke control in the 1930s and with over 70 years of service experience, Colt is the U.K.’s leading provider of smoke control and ventilation maintenance.


Smoke is different to fire

Using a fire security company to look after your smoke ventilation systems can be dangerous. Smoke control needs specific maintenance from specialist engineers.


Are your systems safe?

Under the RRO, building operators and owners are required by law to provide suitable maintenance to ensure proper smoke control system functionality in an emergency.


Colt engineers. Your best choice

Colt has more highly trained and experienced smoke control service engineers ready to help 24/7, 365 days a year across the UK than any other company.


Your legal obligations as a building operator

The RRO requires that life safety systems be “maintained by a competent person who is familiar with the fire engineering performance specifications of that specific system”.


The UK’s most competent smoke control servicer

Colt was the UK's first smoke business to be certified to both IFCC SDI 19 and SDI 05 as a competent installer and servicer of smoke control systems. Find out more about our competency.
