Tecserv UK has been providing all routine regular fire alarm maintenance and repairs to Akeley Wood Senior School for many years.
Part of the school fire alarm system which protected Akeley Wood House and the Stable Block operated using an EDA Millennium radio fire alarm system which will become obsolete in March 2021.
The School therefore decided to upgrade the entire system and replace it with the latest technology.
Although Tecserv UK had to submit a formal bid as part of a formal tendering process, we fully met the technical brief and budget criteria and, along with our previous experience of the campuses, our fully responsive service and the trusted relationships we’d built with the facilities team, we were appointed to install a new EDA Zerio Plus wireless fire alarm system to the Main House, the Art Building and the Stable Block at the Senior School campus.
This system was preferred as it was compatible with the other existing systems in newer building on the school site and operated on the EN approved frequency. This meant that all systems could now be integrated and centrally monitored by a facilities team. All of the new detection devices, call points and control panels were also like for like in size and shape for the ones being removed which also ensured that very little ‘making good’ works were required to the walls and ceilings of the listed buildings.
