The main entrance door to your property is to a full British Standard specification and is also fire compliant. It is fitted with 3 hinges, a Euro Cylinder Sash Lock with a thumb turn and a spyhole for your security. Front doors to the property cannot be replaced without seeking advice from the Managing Agent, Centrick Property, as this could jeopardise the fire integrity of your property. Please contact the Managing Agent, Centrick Property for their procedure on how to apply for consent to change the front door to your property.
There is an individual video intercom system within your property that is linked to the main entrance doors to the development. This allows each resident control of visitors into the building. In order to prevent security issues within the development, please do not provide access to anyone who you are not familiar with.
A hard-wired smoke detector that has a battery back-up is located within each property. The alarms are interlinked throughout the whole development to ensure safety and peace of mind for all occupants.
You should regularly test the detectors by pressing the button on the device and also ensure that the batteries are changed regularly to allow for the detectors to work to their optimum. For your own safety, smoke detectors should not be removed from their fixtures or covered and also need to be well maintained.
Where required, some properties have a wireless fire detector placed on the ceiling within the kitchen area near to the smoke alarm. This is called an Auto-mist System and it detects extreme heat temperatures. On detection of a blaze, the alarm will send a signal to the mains, which is connected in the unit directly underneath the kitchen sink. When triggered, the high pressure jet that is mounted into the wall will release a burst of water mist. The water mist reaches a distance of up to 6 metres when activated.
Please note that the Auto-mist System has been commissioned and should not be tested by the occupier of the property.
The information board located within the reception will provide you with information on where the emergency exits are, as well as the fire emergency procedure for the development. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with this information. For further information, please contact the Managing Agent, Centrick Property.
