We supply business customers, public bodies and organisations but also welcome individual end customers. Customers will receive perfect customer care from us whether they purchase one smoke alarm or 10,000.
Our wholesale customers are offered huge trade discounts and a free trade portal branded for them to serve their own customer base with a modern online tool that has been developed by Safelincs specifically for the fire safety industry.
We have achieved numerous certifications and awards including:
We support the local community by sponsoring local charities, such as the Alford Corn Exchange, the Alford library and we involve local artists in the development of promotional materials. We also support local schools with fire safety activities and work placements.
We believe that we should recommend the products and services that you really need and no more. In fact we will always try to save you money and will recommend more economic solutions if these are available. This philosophy is reflected by our sales staff and our service engineers. None of our sales or service staff therefore receive any performance bonus. All our staff are paid fixed wages, taking the pressure off them to force products onto our customers that are not really needed.
We are always looking for ways to improve so we ask our customers to complete a 3rd party review. This feedback is continuously assessed by our dedicated team to see what changes can be implemented to improve the buying experience for our customers. See our customer feedback

Many people are unaware of the devastating effects of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon Monoxide has no colour, smell or taste and cannot be detected by the human senses. It is extremely dangerous, binding itself to the haemoglobin in red blood cells and preventing them from transporting oxygen around the body.
According to statistics released by the Office for National Statistics, throughout England and Wales there are an average of over 60 deaths every year due to accidental exposure to carbon monoxide - up to 45% of which occur in the home.
Figures from the Department of Health and Social Care show that there are around 4000 cases of carbon monoxide poisoning treated in A&E Departments across England each year - even mild cases can exacerbate existing conditions such as respiratory illnesses, leading to fatalities.
According to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for England, around 200 per year are hospitalised in England and Wales as a result of accidental carbon monixide posioning.
A study of more than 27,000 properties by the Liverpool John Moores University, supported by the Merseyside and West Midlands Fire Services, found that less than 10% of homes have a single carbon monoxide alarm to protect occupants from this deadly gas.
