Installation of a monitored Intruder and Fire Alarm System

Hughes, Essex

Hughes Electrical has been a longstanding client of CTS Security. We designed, supplied and installed a monitored Intruder and Fire Alarm System at Hughes’ warehouse located at Airport Business Park,
Southend, Essex.

Hughes continue to choose us to look after their security requirements at their various stores, warehouses and distribution centers around the country.

We have carried out several new Intruder and Fire alarm installations for Hughes over the past few years and have also taken over the maintenance of some of their existing security systems at sites which were not previously on our books. We now look after more than 30 sites for Hughes.

I am very pleased that we continue to increase our portfolio for Hughes year after year. We have built an excellent working relationship with them and I believe that the reason they return to us with new and existing business each year is because we are able to work flexibly, at sites around the country. We always provide Hughes with an excellent level of service, which is thanks not only to our engineering team, but also our administration staff who are key to coordinating the work that we do for Hughes from installations through to ongoing maintenance.

For the Intruder Alarm, we designed, supplied and installed a monitored system, using a combination of Texecom and Pyronix products.

For the monitored Fire Alarm, we designed, supplied and installed a Category P1 Addressable system, which includes automatic smoke detection, beams, call points and sounders throughout the premises, using a Kentec addressable fire panel and Apollo XP 95 devices.

The benefit of an addressable Fire Alarm system is that in the event of a fire, the panel will provide information as to a precise location of the problem, which allows for earlier detection and therefore faster combative action.

During our working relationship with CTS I have been very impressed with their communication and professionalism. Throughout the various projects CTS have undertaken, we have found them to be proactive and co-operative towards their planning and execution, delivering our requirements on schedule, within budget, and to the highest quality standards. Service engineers have always been punctual, smart in appearance and well informed. They have been willing to work around us to get their job done with minimal disruption to the business, which is a key factor for us. Help and advice has always been just a phone call or email away, and they show an innovative spirit when it comes to problem solving. Communication with CTS is always easy and clear, and they provide solutions for the requirements we have. I would not hesitate to recommend their services and hope to continue working with them for years to come.
