Elisabeth Curtis Centre

Installing an automated fire alarm covering multiple zones and environments at our centre.

  • Installation of an automated fire alarm.
  • Full coverage of the building protecting people, equines and the property
  • Monitored service ensuring a fast response from the fire brigade and keyholder out of hours.
  • Budget generated mainly from a successful grant application

Installation of an automated fire alarm covering 3 zones including entrance foyer, office and toilets, indoor arena and viewing gallery and stable yard. This included the use of additional sounders and strobe lighting to cover appropriate warning for our service users who may be hard of hearing or impaired sight.

A mix of detectors to accommodate varying environments in the Centre. These include heated “watertight” offices to a large, sanded school and a stable yard with dust, damp and water.

TEC Fire and Security installed the fire alarm system following the strict requirements set out in BS5839 part1 2017. The newly installed system protects not only the high-risk areas but also the escape routes allowing for safe evacuation of staff and clients. This ensure that it is safe for the emergency services to access, if required.

Whilst at the Elisabeth Curtis Centre we made sure that we ‘worked with them’ safely and efficiently in and around their environment. We followed the objectives and provided a reliable cost-effective solution to protect their investment and livestock. TEC Fire and Security designed, installed and commissioned the system confirming the site was left in full working order.

TEC worked very closely with us from the offset visiting the centre multiple times to understand our requirements, the different uses for the building, and the varying environments to ensure we get the best solution. They went above and beyond to provide us with a “trial” sounder in the run up to the installation to work on training our equines to the sirens ahead of the installation. This resulted in a successful implementation. The work was completed within time working with us on-site to ensure minimal interruption to our work and taking a flexible approach to their work to help accommodate our equine’s care. TEC continue to handle our fire extinguisher servicing and the alarm now brings our fire- fighting and detecting under one roof. We could not thank them enough.
