Buying and paying for fire protection systems normally requires a significant allocated capital expenditure budget. This can be an obstacle to fulfilling projects and implementing urgently required fire protection.


Equipro is able to supply fire protection systems through lease purchase options to qualifying customers as well as through the conventional capital expenditure process meaning the cost of the system can be spread over time enabling customers to make the decision to purchase much needed fire protection.

Businesses that purchase fire protection systems through lease purchase also benefit from increased tax benefits (see working example below).

Contact us to see how lease purchasing fire protection systems can benefit your business.

A Finance Lease means that valuable cash can remain in the business and used for continued growth.

Protects Other Lines of Credit

Existing credit lines, such as bank overdraft or other facility, remain intact for when times are a little uncertain.

Why settle for inferior equipment? Spreading the cost over its useful life makes perfect sense and ensures you get what your business needs.
