Adaston are the leading passive fire protection specialists in the UK, dedicated to protecting the integrity of buildings and safeguarding the lives of those who live and work in them.

We are independent, professional, and work with absolute integrity, consulting primarily on Passive Fire Protection. Across the team we are fully accredited and experienced in all aspects of Fire Safety Protection. From hospitals and schools to student accommodation and flagship office buildings, we have extensive experience across all building types in the public and private sector.

If you own, manage or operate a business, you will need to comply with fire safety law.  The main law is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which applies across England and Wales.

The Order applies to virtually all buildings, places and structures other than individual private dwellings. Our site surveys could involve inspecting sections of a building, the entire building or an estate.
