In conjunction with a major refurbishment and extension, Fixfire® completed a full upgrade of the existing Life Safety Systems including:
Fire Alarm System. Replacement of existing conventional Fire Alarm System with 'open protocol' analogue addressable version including ML2 2 Loop control and indicating equipment.

The system complies with BS5839 Part 1 and is designed based on 'assisted-evacuation'.
Supply and installation of electromagnetic free-swing door closers to all bedroom and dayroom doors and door hold-back devices to thoroughfare communal corridor doors.
Installation of CareAlert600 Nurse Call System throughout the home including CareBell™ and CareDoor™ monitored access control systems including CareEntri™ and internal doors eg to stairs and CareXit™ with CareLock™ locking devices to perimeter exit doors.
