Metroline News

What have we been up to?

March 6, 2013

The snow and ice seem a distant memory and Easter is just around the corner! The last couple of months have been typically busy for the Metroline Security team, with a number of interesting projects being completed in addition to our more regular services:

Fire Alarms
An existing client of ours in Canterbury had 2 fire alarm panels replaced with a 4 loop and a single-loop Advanced fire alarm panel. The flexible programming of the Advanced panels allowed us to sub-divide the buildings to give them staged evacuation over a huge site which means that in the event of a fire alarm their Canterbury-based production facility need not suffer with unnecessary downtime. We have also been engaged to update the fire detection systems over a number of buildings in an East Kent secondary school, whilst a college campus in Dover had additional works undertaken with their wireless EMS fire alarm system.

Gas Suppression
Ashford Borough Council went through a tender process for the installation of a Gas Suppression system to their IT server room. We were pleased to be awarded the contract for the works, based on IG541 cylinders, which (as you would hopefully expect from Metroline Security!) were completed on time and on budget.

Fire Extinguishers
We are increasingly asked to look after the annual servicing of fire extinguishers by our clients. As a result, we now look after dozens of sites throughout Kent and Sussex and we have recently added more premises in Folkestone, Hythe, Broadstairs, Ashford and Hastings into the mix!

Fire Doors
A relatively new area for Metroline Security is the supply and installation of fire doors. Aside from smaller ad hoc projects, a secondary school in Shepway has contracted Metroline to replace dozens of fire doors with FD30-rated replacements.

Burglar Alarms
A number of home burglar alarms and commercial intruder alarms have been installed. As we maintain thousands residential and commercial systems, we are always busy servicing and carrying out smaller works!

Fire Risk Assessments
Fire Risk Assessments have been carried out for new clients including HV Wooding of Hythe, a couple of doctor’s surgeries and blocks of flats.

CCTV installations tend to vary in terms of specification depending on budgets. For example, we have installed a number of Dedicated Micros DVRs for our larger clients where enterprise-level security, reliability and scalability is required. However, we also install smaller and more cost-effective CCTV solutions for those requiring single-site coverage (whether this is IP-based CCTV or analogue).

Access Control
We have installed a number of door entry and access control systems. One of these installations (in Dartford, Kent) incorporated Paxton’s Net2 access control system with Paxton Net2 entry door entry stations. The Paxton system provides an integrated door entry and access control solution in a simple and scalable manner. For those wanting the reliability and other benefits of Paxton Net2, Net2 Entry is the perfect door entry solution to complement this.
