Dan Gilmour started out as a general electrician working in fields such as Mechanical Engineering and Motor Control, before moving into the niche field of Fire Protection.  It turned out that he had a real knack for programming and troubleshooting fire panels which, coupled with a desire to set up his own business, lead to the establishment of AEFS in 1998.

We design, install, test and maintain all of the essential components of a comprehensive fire protection solution for your business.  AEFS focus on fire protection so you can focus on growing your business.

We prioritise developing and maintaining great working relationships with our clients and see the installation of a fire protection system as just the beginning of an ongoing partnership.
