Company Overview


Established in 1907, H. Roberts & Son Ltd. is based in Liverpool and is one of the longest established fire protection companies in the United Kingdom. Since 1937, the company has been in the ownership of the current family for three generations.

Our main trade has always been and remains fire protection. We constantly strive to stay ahead of the competition, offering businesses and individuals our fire protection experience.

Our position as market leaders in this field has stood for many years thanks to the innovations found in fire protection products and the services we provide such as thorough fire risk assessments and comprehensive fire safety training.

It is the policy of H.Roberts & Son Ltd. to provide services that conform to our customers requirements. Our aim is to provide the best service at reasonable costs to all of our clients. All clients whether they are large corporations or small to medium enterprises, receive the same high standard of service.

Our belief is that there are two main elements to fire rating. These are integrity, which stops the spread of flame and then insulation, which stops the transfer of heat. Both of these factors have the ability to cause combustion and thus aid the spread of a fire.

Over the past 50 years, heavy emphasis has been placed on research and development resulting in innovative and life saving products with technology specifically designed to meet our commercial, residential, industrial, governmental and institutional customers' needs and requirments.

Utilising our services with products we offer helps to ensure that no gaps or overlaps form in your fire protection.
