Apartment Information – One Thames Valley

Security

The main entrance door to your property is to a full British Standard specification and is fire compliant. It is fitted with 3-star Euro Profile Sash Lock with a thumb turn and a spy hole for your security. Apartment front doors to the property cannot be replaced without seeking advice in the first instance from the Managing Agent, Seven Living, as this could affect the fire integrity of your property. 

Intercom System

There is an individual video intercom system within your property that is linked to the main entrance doors. This allows each resident control of visitors into the building. To prevent security issues, do not allow or provide access to anyone who you are not familiar with.

Fire Safety

Should you discover a fire, then please dial 999 immediately to report the situation to the emergency services.

It is important that you do not panic or stop to collect belongings. Please do not attempt to tackle the fire yourself by using the extinguishers, unless you are trained to do so. In the event of a fire please do not use the lift and descend using the stairs.

The information board located within the reception area 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, Seven Living.

A hard-wired smoke detector and heat detector that has a battery back-up is located within each apartment.  It is strongly recommended that the occupier regularly test the detectors by pressing the button on the device. Smoke detectors are also located in the communal areas. 

There is a full sprinkler system installed within each apartment which is designed to activate with the presence of high levels of heat from a fire. The heat from the fire would melt the sensor,  which in turn would activate the sprinkler, discharging water at a rate to contain the fire.

For your own safety, smoke detectors should not be removed from their fixtures or covered.
