Manned 24 hour Call-out Service

Shortbread House


Client: Shortbread House, Edinburgh
Completion date: February 2023
HF divisions involved: Fire & Security

Brief project description: As part of their growth plans, Shortbread House Edinburgh had recently acquired a new premises beside their existing factory unit in Leith. With the new premises, they had a need to secure and protect the site and turned to HF and our Fire & Security division to complete the work.

We carried out the installation of a new Intelligent Fire Alarm System, Intruder Alarm System as well as CCTV for the new premises. As part of the installation, the new fire alarm system allows the customer to individually mark each fire detection point for a more accurate detection system.

These new premises that Shortbread House were moving into had an existing fire & security system that a previous occupier had installed.  We were able to network this system and upgraded the intruder alarm to tie in with the newly installed system that we had fitted while also networking the existing fire alarm install.

Project Challenges: The main challenge that our installation team had to overcome was connecting the existing fire alarm system that was already fitted in the premises to the newly installed system that our Fire & Security team had been contracted to install.  Fire Alarm Systems are a life saving necessity, especially in a facility like this so it was of the utmost importance that the new system was correctly installed and working reliably connected to existing devices that were already fitted.

Our Fire & Security team offer complete business and personal fire and security solutions. Our Fire and Security Services are NSI Gold and NSI Fire Gold accredited and we can design, install and offer maintenance contracts for Fire Systems, Access Control Systems, CCTV and Intruder Alarms nationwide. Our experience and skill allowed us to easily overcome the challenge of interlinking the existing system with ours and the new fire & security system was successfully installed, tested and commissioned without any problems.
