Rated 'Excellent' on Trustpilot

Pyro undertook a detailed fire door and fire stopping survey of a large portfolio of school buildings across a 6-week programme. They were proactive and delivered on the dates they advised they would. We would recommend Pyro Fire to many other clients due to the quality of the report provided and also their proactive and engaging work ethic.

Andrew S - Large School Portfolio

Pyro Fire produce Fire Strategy Reports and undertake fire risk assessments and fire-stopping surveys always to a high standard. Pyro Fire are responsive and clearly experts in their field. We continue to use Pyro Fire with existing clients and recommend them to prospective clients.

Dan M - Henry Riley LLP

Thorough and comprehensive assessment of our premises. This is the third time we have used Pyro Fire Services and I recommend this very professional organisation!

David C - HMO

Full FRA on a conversion of a former care home to 14 self-contained apartments. Very quick to attend site and to turnaround the report. The online system worked well as we could photo and evidence our upgrades without the assessor returning to site. Already instructed Pyro on our next scheme. Would highly recommend.

Oliver B - Property Developer

Pyro Fire Services have recently carried out some works for our company, and as always providing an exceptional service. We have worked with Pyro Fire for the past 5 years now and would recommend them to any business.

Dave H - Supported Living

Pyro supported us with our fire risk assessment for the launch of our new barbers & coffee shop in Sheffield. The process was quick, efficient, fairly priced and they went above and beyond to support us, aswell as being incredibly flexible and understanding of our needs as a business location in it's creation stage. I'd highly recommend Pyro for all fire safety needs.

Sam M - Retail Premises

FRA on a block of flats was carried out, this was required due to out of date FRA, Service was amazing, Report delivered almost instantly. Would use again, would highly recommend!
