Windows & External Doors – The Kettleworks

External Doors

The main double doors on the front of the building are kept permanently closed and locked by means of overhead door closers and magnetic locks. The doors can be released by:

– Placing your pedestrian access fob against the control panel outside the main entrance door.

– Pressing the door release to the side of the door from inside the reception area.

– Pressing the door release button on the intercom phone within your property to allow access; when the video entry system inside the property has been activated by a visitor from the control panel outside the building.

Please note that the fire escapes in the development must be kept locked and must only be used in the event of a fire.

Windows

The windows in your property are new powder coated aluminium double glazed units. Please note that some of the windows within the original sections of the development are the existing original windows.

Heat Recovery Systems are within the properties where the windows do not open. Fumes that are built up in the property are extracted by way of carbon filters which are built into the external walls. This acts by bringing cool air into the property and regulating the temperature of the property. Please note that this does not act as a cooling system.

The internal cleaning of the windows is the responsibility of the occupier and must be carried out in a safe manner. The external cleaning of the windows is the responsibility of the Managing Agent, Centrick Property.

Fire Safety

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.

Download – Aico Optical Smoke Alarm – Product Data Sheet

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.
