Rural School Updates Fire Alarm System


When the time came for Holbeton 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.

Being an older property the installation team came up against various obstacles that they were able to overcome and work through to deliver an addressable fire alarm system installed on two loops. As the school had a pressing need for the system it was installed partly over a half term period and partly out of school normal working hours.

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.
