The Armstrong Priestley Maidstone design department comprises both LPC and Firas fully accredited designers with a wealth of experience and access to prior project blueprints. We design all our fire sprinklers to the necessary standards, including – in some cases – UFC military standards and ACE guidance for energy from waste application.

Types of system, covering a vast scope of application, include automatic, deluge, foam-enhanced, dry riser and water mist systems.

Our innovative designs make us one of the leading fire protection specialists in the UK. There is no project too large or too unique for us to handle.

Public and Private Sectors we serve in Maidstone and Kent:

Industrial Sector Fire Sprinklers, Maidstone

The industrial sector has a vast array of different building types. We have worked on basic mezzanine extensions to fully automated storage systems and air craft hangers. No matter your trade, Armstrong Priestley can design you a Maidstone fire sprinkler system that will save your product and keep your employees protected.

We can supply fire sprinklers to brand new buildings, or fit them in older buildings in need of a fire safety update. Usually we are required to fit a suitable pump and tanked water supply arrangement that can be modified to your specific insurer requirement.

Commercial Sector Fire Sprinklers, Maidstone 

Projects that we have undertaken in this category range from food factories and other production facilities, to office blocks, hotels and even fire stations. Typically we need to fit a full pumped water supply, but in some cases, such as OH1 risk levels, a town’s main solution has also been undertaken.

We do offer retro-fit sprinkler coverage, where a client’s needs have changed or where new clients come to us looking to install fire protection in an existing building. Whatever your requirements in Maidstone, we have the adaptability and the expertise to meet them.

Retail Sector Fire Sprinklers, Maidstone 

From malls and shopping centres to single stores, Armstrong Priestley works alongside specialist shopfitters to make buildings within the retail sector safe for customers and employees. We will deliver effective sprinkler systems that blend seamlessly into the aesthetic of your retail environment so all that hard work on interior design is not wasted.

Some examples of our work in this sector include Blue Water shopping centre in Kent and clients such as Watches of Switzerland, Goldsmiths, ASDA and Tag Heuer.

Residential Sector Fire Sprinklers, Maidstone 

Our Residential department is on hand to advise and support you through the process of installing fire sprinklers in your Maidstone residence. No building is too big or too small. We have designed and installed systems in houses and single bedroom apartments, as well as care homes, sheltered housing and high rise blocks of flats, among others.

We have installed fire sprinklers in buildings where the use has changed or the building has been modified; for example, to a more open plan living situation. We have a range of different sprinkler types from water mist to foam systems, all made to the relevant safety standard.

Education Fire Protection Sector Sprinklers, Maidstone 

Armstrong Priestley has installed fire sprinklers in over 200 buildings within the education sector since the year 2000. We have noticed a growing need for improved fire safety due to cases of arson within schools, even in Maidstone.

Working for contractors such as Willmott Dixon and Bam Construction, we have undertaken fire protection projects on anything ranging from £50k small primary schools to £500k academies.

Beyond schools, we have worked closely with local authorities to help develop a fire sprinkler strategy for the protection of buildings within their portfolio, such as council buildings.

About Maidstone

Lying just 32 miles from London, Maidstone is the county town of Kent in South East England. Kent is known as the ‘Garden of England’ and Maidstone has traditionally been the centre of commerce for the region. The River Medway that runs through the town centre was used for the transportation of goods to and from the Thames Estuary. Historically, brewing and paper making were other important areas of industry for Maidstone. Kent’s largest brewery, Fremlin’s brewery, has now been converted into Fremlin Walk shopping centre.

Maidstone’s heritage can be traced back to the Neolithic era, the Romans and the Normans. It has played an important role in British history and, as such, is home to some historic buildings, such as All Saints Church, Leeds Castle and the Archbishop’s Palace; all Grade I listed. Maidstone’s Mote Park was originally part of a country estate, converted into landscaped parkland at the end of the 18th century, and now used as a municipal public park.
