Country Page: United Kingdom

Global Fire Equipment (GFE) considers the UK to be one of its most important strategic markets and has established a new dedicated UK office facility and learning centre in Havant, Hampshire, to further strengthen its presence in this key region. Managing Director at GFE UK, Matt Ketley, is based out of this office.

UK Conformity Assessment (UKCA)

As the UK has left the European Union (EU), the UK Government is developing its own UK Conformity Assessment (UKCA) marking which applies to most products previously subject to the European Union’s Construction Products Regulation (CPR) CE marking. The EU’s CPR CE marking will still be valid in England, Wales and Scotland until 30 June 2025. This does not apply to Northern Ireland which will continue to use EU CPR CE marking or the new UKNI marking.

Global Fire Equipment are implementing the necessary changes to achieve full UK compliance before the relevant deadlines.

Introducing the new G-One Fire Alarm Control Panel

The G-One is a versatile addressable single loop fire control panel with advanced connectivity and is fully CPR certified to EN54-2 and EN54-4.

Designed with affordability and flexibility in mind, the G-One combines sophisticated design with easy installation and intuitive commissioning, making it the ideal solution for a wide range of single loop applications, from offices and restaurants, to shops, schools and more.

The G-One incorporates sophisticated Chameleon peer-to-peer multi-master network communications and powerful cause and effect programming capability. It can be networked with up to 32 fire control panels from the GFE range and has a high-integrity digital protocol for resilient high-speed monitoring and data communication with up to 250 devices on a single loop. Easy to install, programme and operate, the G-One can be either surface or recessed mounted.

A unique installer-friendly dynamic, automatic self-learn facility bypasses the traditional manually initiated auto-learn process. Other features include a unique high resolution back-lit blue graphical LCD display, which ensures a clear and effective user interface. The G-One is fully compatible with all GFE-manufactured digital analogue-addressable loop devices and its menu structure is identical to existing GFE panels, ensuring familiarity and ease of operation for users.
