Debenhams opened its new store in Scunthorpe with a package of six key safety systems and background music - combining almost all of PEL's systems strengths to deliver quality and value to the project, with a fast-turnaround achieved through PEL's developed knowledge of Debenhams' build and fit-out practices.
As with numerous other Debenhams stores throughout the UK, the new store in North Lincolnshire Shopping Park has been fitted with Fire Detection, Security, Public Address (PA) & Music systems by PEL Services Ltd.
The new store, which occupies 40,000 sq ft across two floors, is protected by a comprehensive store-wide "open-protocol" fire detection and PEL's Refuge-Call, which allows a disabled person to alert the central station, enabling appropriate support to be provided.
A PA system fitted by PEL, which is used for safety and general announcements is also used to broadcast in store radio and advertisements programmed by PEL Music & Media, under a Debenhams-wide MEDIAinSTORE PRS/PPL licensing contract. This ensures well-judged variety and suitability in the music appeal to Debenhams shoppers.
As with all major stores, security was a key consideration and PEL is equipped to install a full range of security systems as an efficient part of the overall package, across multiple disciplines.
PEL Services operates throughout the UK and overseas, supporting markets as diverse as retail, education, logistics, local authorities, healthcare, social housing, financial, public utilities and leisure venues.
