Our products are designed, engineered and manufactured to exacting standards and have attained product type approval in Europe (EN54, CPD, VdS), US (UL), China (CNTC), France (NF) and Russia (VNIIPO), to name a few. Products offered include end-to-end, reflective, and explosion proof beam detectors, all provided with a comprehensive warranty. 

As well as beam detectors FFE, formerly known as Fire Fighting Enterprises, is also a world leader in the manufacture and supply of fire extinguishers for the aviation market. The comprehensive product range includes hand held cabin and cargo compartment extinguishers as well automatic lavatory compartment extinguishers.

A third product range is industrial vibration switches. Products include standard and ATEX certified explosion proof switches, which are used for the protection of rotating plant and reciprocating machinery.

FFE (Fire Fighting Enterprises) Ltd was acquired by Halma plc in November 2000, as part of its growth plans within the global Fire Protection Market. FFE continues to grow through a combination of high quality product and commitment to its customers.

Talentum® was acquired in April 2013 and integrated into FFE. The history started in 1968 when the first Talentum® invention was a device that would respond to sparks in pneumatic conveying and dust extraction systems, these principles were then applied to the monitoring of flames and in 1974 the first system was installed on a power station boiler. Since then many Talentum® systems have been installed around the world protecting valuable property from the risk of fire.

In January 2015 Fire Fighting Enterprises officially became known as FFE Limited.
