When the time came for Mary Dean’s Primary School to update their fire alarm system they commissioned designs and quotations from the market place. Through a solid design, good pricing structure and that ‘attention to detail’ in explaining to the school what the installation would entail, Universal Fire And Security were able to secure the business.
The need to carry out the work during a tight time frame meant that the existing Fire Alarm System needed to be kept operational at all times whilst the new system was installed. The new system then underwent a 7 day soak test period. Having passed the test the old system was removed and the new system handed over to the school following a full demonstration of the use of the system and the capabilities of the addressable system.
A lot of schools are insured under a ‘blanket scheme’ with local councils or academies. What is not readily known is that to comply to the insurers requirements and hence have full cover the design and the implementation of the system needs to be to L2/M standards.
