We always thought we should lead.
Always have done. Still do.

Since 1931, Colt has been leading the way in smoke control technology and regulation and we’re still doing it now.

We are proud to announce that Colt has just been named the first UK smoke control business to be certified to both IFCC SDI 19 and SDI 05 standards, developed by the SCA.

The new certifications, which have been provided by IFC, have been awarded in recognition of Colt’s skill as an installer and servicer of both smoke control systems and fire curtains.

SDI 19, which is mandatory for all smoke control installations, aims to ensure that installers are competent in areas such as fire strategy, scheme design and installation.

SDI 05 demands the same levels of competency in regards to the installation, commissioning and servicing of active and fixed barriers for fire and smoke control.

“This certification scheme will ensure quality and competency, affording the end user confidence that their safety critical system is fit for purpose. Certified contractors will have clearly demonstrated that their trained staff consistently adhere to industry best practice and fully appreciate the importance of correct installation, inspection and maintenance.”
