London West End Hotel

With occupancy at maximum capacity on the last weekend before Christmas the last thing you need is for the Notifier Fire alarm system to develop a fault with the power supply. The fault would cause the whole Hotel to be without fire alarm protection on the busiest weekend of the Christmas period. The Hotel was faced with having to close and rehouse all the guests in other Hotels at their cost The Hotel's incumbent Fire alarm contractor was unable to get the parts in time so we were asked if we could help in resolving the problem. We were able to send an engineer to site to verify the parts required and then locate and deliver the part to site that afternoon to be fitted by our engineer. Once fitted the Fire Alarm system was tested and witnessed by the Hotel management, the Hotel's insurance company were then informed that the Hotel now had fire cover and were happy for the Hotel to remain open over the Hotel's busiest period of the year.

Large Residential Site in South London

Contacted by a large facilities management company to visit one of their sites and report on the failing of the Fire alarm system. Their existing Fire alarm contractor had recently replaced the Gent Fire alarm panel due to a number of problems. The Facilities Company inspected their work and found the Fire alarm panel had been left so that half the building had no fire cover. Our engineers attended the site and found that a number of the internal control cards needed to be replaced due to damaged caused by screws being left loose inside the panel. Our engineers were able to replace the parts from the stock carried on their vehicles and then they rectify a loop fault. The Fire alarm system was then tested to the clients' satisfaction. We were then asked to return one weekend to carry out validation of the text information; this was carried out causing minimal disruption to the tenants and the Fire alarm system was updated to reflect any text changes that were required.

Large Military Site in the South of England

Large Gent Network of 13 Vigilon Panels had sustained a large amount of damage due to a possible lighting strike. The network cards had been damaged in almost all the fire alarm panels which caused a major problem for the maintenance/security staff on site as the panels are located in 13 separate buildings across a very large site. Our engineers were able to attended site and over a period of 2 days managed to replace the network cards in 13 panels. 3 of the panels also required replacement Power supply units which due to the age of the fire alarm panels required retrofit PSU which were ordered and delivered to site the next day. Once the works were completed the network was operational from the main security centre and patrols to carry out fire watches were able to be stopped
