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, as this could jeopardise the fire integrity of your property. Please contact the Managing Agent, Centrick 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. There is also a hard-wired heat alarm that has a battery back-up fitted within the kitchen of 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 and heat alarms should not be removed from their fixtures or covered and also need to be well maintained.
There is a full sprinkler system installed into the whole building and within each property. The sprinkler system is designed to activate with the presence of high levels of heat from a fire. The heat from the blaze would then melt the sensor which in turn would activate the sprinkler, discharging water at a rate to contain the fire. Should there be a fire that is affecting the whole building, then the sprinkler system will activate throughout.
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.
