WH Smith warehouse fire detection and alarm system
PEL Services, top-accredited providers of LPS 1014 commercial fire, security and communication systems, installed a comprehensive fire detection and alarm system into WH Smith’s Dunstable warehouse.
A warehouse predominantly stocking stationery for nationwide distribution to WH Smith stores and regional depots, the Dunstable warehouse has been occupied by WH Smith since 1979. During that time, the buildings and facilities have been modified and extended to cope with modern warehousing requirements.
The ageing fire detection system in place had become unreliable and did not provide sufficient coverage for the extensions, or for new fire regulations. WH Smith therefore decided to strip out the old system and replace it with a modern fire detection and alarm system.
PEL Services has enjoyed a long term relationship with WH Smith, maintaining the company’s fire alarms and emergency escape lighting across the UK. This experience, combined with PEL’s recommendations which provided the company with the best fire system available, led to the contract being awarded to PEL.
WH Smith’s Dunstable warehouse is now equipped with a four loop addressable fire detection system, which uses over 400 Apollo detection and alarm devices, and an Advanced Electronics control panel. This expert combination provides WH Smith with sophisticated detection technology, extensive coverage and ease of use for the ultimate in safety and reliability.
