Alberta is the first company outside the UK & Ireland to have the highest level of certification for fire detection, alarm and firefighting systems: the BRE Global Loss Prevention approval.

The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) is the leading international Certification Body in the fields of security and fire protection. LPCB approval is recognised by governments and regulatory authorities across the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Europe.

One of the main challenges of making buildings safe and secure is selecting and installing fire safety and security products that actually do what they claim. Even with the best equipment, fire detection and alarm systems are only effective if they are correctly designed, installed and maintained. Therefore, it is important that competent firms have a proven track record to design, install and service fire detection and alarm systems.

The LPCB approval process involves stringent assessment and testing in order to ensure that products and systems meet quality standards set by a team of experts, ranging from regulators to insurers, designers, manufacturers, installers, engineers and scientists.

The approval demonstrates that Alberta’s Fire detection and alarm systems have been extensively tested for functionality and performance and have been designed, installed and commissioned in conformity with LPCB recognized standards.

All LPCB approved fire safety and security products are listed in the Red Books. Published annually and used across the world, the Red Books have become the de-facto directory of approved and trusted fire and security products and services. They are also available online at, where the lists are constantly updated with all the latest LPCB approval information.
