Welcome to Sharpfibre Limited

Sharpfibre is the UK’s leading specialist fire protection contractor providing passive fire protection systems and life safety solutions throughout the UK and Europe.

Formed in 1987, Sharpfibre is proud to be one of the longest established privately owned fire protection companies in its sector. Operating from its head quarters in Basildon and its offices in Blackwood and Paris, Sharpfibre boasts a reputation for being the specialist fire protection contractor of choice when it comes to health and safety, service delivery and technical expertise. Working closely with our key supply chain partners, Sharpfibre provides the most cost effective, efficient and technically compatible fire protection solutions available on the market today.

The protection of the building structure from and during a fire is one of the most important aspects of its design. Inadequate or incorrectly installed fire protection systems could result in the premature loss of the structure or worse still, the loss of life. To protect the structure from fire, Sharpfibre can provide up to 240minutes protection to the structures steelwork using the latest Cementitious Fire Sprays, Intumescent Paints and a wide range of Fire Boards, including Promat Vermiculux ®, Promatect ®-250 and Promat Supalux ®. To avoid the spread of fire through the loss of compartmentation, all penetrations through compartment walls must be correctly sealed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke. Sharpfibre has extensive experience in the installation of fire rated mineral fibre batts, fire rated mastics and mortar compounds. Some structures demand much higher protection from fire and blast where only specially developed products will meet these requirements. These markets include road tunnels, petrochemical environments, power generation, underground rail stations and vault and archive storage facilities. Sharpfibre is a licenced and approved installer of Promat DURASTEEL ® barrier systems as well as Promat Cafco Fendolite ® MII and Grace Monokote ® Z-146 fire spray systems.

With its flexible approach and experience, Sharpfibre is able to offer its clients further solutions and services including the provision of thermal and fire rated soffit insulation, and the installation of Drylining, Ceilings and Spray Applied Render Systems.

Detailed information on all of these services can be found in the what we do section of our website.

With the confidence of capability and a “Right First Time” culture embedded throughout the business supported by independent third party certification (FIRAS scheme), trade association membership (ASFP) and a number of industry awards including Specialist Contractor of the Year, only one company can offer the complete fire protection package.
