Tecserv UK are delighted to announce that we have been appointed by Harvey Nichols to implement a full fire alarm system upgrade within their flagship London store in Knightsbridge.
The Knightsbridge building as we know it today, was designed and built in stages between 1889 and 1894 and so presents many challenges when carrying building related upgrades or refurbishments.
With branded merchandise and leisure facilities now available over nine floors the store is fitted with a radio frequency fire alarm system to avoid the need for miles and mile of connective cabling. However, a change in legislation with regards to the frequency over which radio fire alarms have to operate meant that any new equipment installed could not be managed using a single operating system as the frequencies would be different.
Tecserv has been appointed to install the new systems which will be supplied by Electro Detectors, a trusted partner and a leading manufacturer of radio fire alarm systems. Harvey Nichols will now embark on a carefully phased project to install a brand new radio fire alarm systems across all floors over the next 3 to five years.
