When Kent’s Elite Fire Safety Ltd (EFS) were faced with providing fire protection for Charlesville Mansions, a million pound apartment block in a charming red brick mansion within the sought-after conservation area of Barons Court near to Fulham and Kensington High Street, they knew that their selection of fire alarm was critical because damage to the Victorian fabric of the building caused by chasing out precious plasterwork to install wires and cables should be avoided.
EFS had worked with Detectomat’s SRC 3000, a radio-linked, wireless solution system, in which each unit transmits data by radio frequency to a receiver before. They knew that it offered the considerable advantages of being wire free, which not only include avoiding damage to historic walls and ceilings but also cost. Because installation is so fast, labour charges are kept to a minimum and there is very little noise and disruption, another important factor in this sought after residential area.
Douglas and Gordon, an up market London estate agent, block and property Management Company, instructed EFS to install independent wireless fire alarms into each of the 5 separate entrances knowing that they would respect the nature and quality of the building.
EFS are based in Kent to provide fire protection for many types of businesses throughout Kent and London including offices, warehouses, schools, manufacturing plants, listed buildings, private residential, private commercial, retail, care homes, local authority premises, hotels and many others.
Sophia Scott, Douglas and Gordon’s Property Manager commented, “Elite Fire Safety carried out their works swiftly and kept disruption for the residents to a minimum. The Detectomat wireless system is much smaller and more discreet than others I have seen and does not detract from the look of the building, I would not hesitate in using Elite or Detectomat’s SRC 3000 again.”
Detectomat’s products offer ranges from design conscious detector covers for residential and commercial applications to conventional, addressable and leading edge wire-free systems, marketed under the company’s “Wireless detect” brand.
