About Us


Automatic Protection Limited (APL) was established in January 2001 by Father and Son team Neil and Stuart Harrison. Based in the border town of Biggar, South Lanarkshire, APL has over 45 years of experience in the fire and security industry with unparalleled expertise in Automatic Fire Extinguishing & Fire Suppression systems.

Initially APL offered a wide variety of fire and security services and consultation, but demand from their client base saw them becoming specialists in automatic fire suppression & extinguishing systems, including their DetExt F/F Automatic Fire Extinguishers. This has led them to becoming the most experienced company in the world in offering this type of protection for all types of storage machines, mobile and static racking.

Any company that has electrical equipment, valuable machinery or critical material/components vital to their business can utilise this system.

APL offers a complete package of: design, installation, commission & maintenance of each system, this includes automatic detection: smoke, flame, heat and HSSD (high sensitivity smoke detection) and the fire suppression system with whichever extinguishing agent is required. APL can also offer assistance in the sealing of the protected rooms and include full Room Integrity Testing.

APL, through their own engineers or by utilising specifically trained subcontractors can offer their service throughout the United Kingdom & Ireland and have installations throughout the world.
