About Impulse

Impulse Fire & Security is a privately owned family run Company formed in 1979 by Managing Director Alan Nash who has over 50 years of experience in the Electronic Security Systems & Fire industry.

Installation work is carried out by our own fully trained and externally security vetted Engineers. We have multi-skilled Engineers capable of designing, installing, commissioning and maintaining systems to the current British Standards and Codes of Practices.

A Preventative Maintenance Contract is recommended and is normally required by insurance companies. Engineers check and test the systems to ensure they are operating correctly in accordance with the relevant British Standards in force at the time of the installation.

An Emergency Service Engineer is available to customers with a live maintenance agreement; this includes access to 24-hour cover all year round. We provide a four hour response to emergency call outs.


Customers have the option of having their systems remotely monitored at our Alarm Receiving Centre where operators are based 24 hours a day to contact Key holders, Police or Fire Brigade.

Alarm monitoring can be provided by connecting a control panel to a Communicator such as a BT RedCare Essential or CSL DigiAir, communicators use GPRS mobile technology or an IP/Ethernet connection to communicate with the alarm receiving centre. There are various types and grades of communicators ranging from basic single path units to Dual-Path Dual-Platform units.

Our Company puts great emphasis on training our Engineers to ensure they are competent to Design, Install, Commission and Maintain Client’s systems. Technical training for Engineers includes the Planning and Design of systems so they can advise Clients on any changes that have been made to building layouts or change of use that may impact their Security or Safety. Our Engineers regularly attend training courses hosted by external training organisations such as: Tavcom, FIA (Fire Industry Association) & ICEL (Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting).
