Comelit Fires Up New Division With FIA Membership


Comelit UK has become a member of the prominent Fire Industry Association (FIA) following the introduction of its new fire division, designed to complement its renowned security portfolio.

The Italian door entry manufacturer, known for its high specification solutions, now offers a range of automatic fire detection systems, including conventional and addressable panels, that have proven successful across Europe.

And pledging its commitment to the sector, Comelit has become a member of the FIA, as the largest fire protection trade association in the UK and influential in helping to promote and shape legislation and professional standards in the fire industry.

Says Colin Smith, Fire Manager Comelit UK: “One of my first priorities in my new role was to ensure Comelit joined the FIA.  This was not only to cement our commitment to the fire industry but also define our position in alignment with an organisation that can set industry best practice, shape standards and influence legislation.

“I am looking forward to attending the FIA networking events and conference opportunities, to raise awareness of our new fire division, and with an ability to present a portfolio of products that achieves the highest safety standards, without compromising on the style and aesthetic that is synonymous with the Comelit brand.”

Comelit will now be able to present its membership of FIA with use of its logo on all printed and digital media; to demonstrate its dedication to an organisation associated with quality, credibility and raising industry standards.

Kat Schabowska, Marketing Executive at Fire Industry Association added: “The FIA has a duty to inform the public about good practice. Employers in particular are often confused about their responsibilities, and it is our duty to provide the necessary guidance and requirements to achieve the standards.

“We are delighted to welcome Comelit UK on board as it launches into the fire industry.  What this demonstrates is a commitment to offering products and services to the highest standards,  which achieve our strict membership criteria.  We look forward to working with Colin and the team.”
