Reflex Systems, the integrated fire and security systems specialist, has recently completed a major project to upgrade the fire detection systems for one of the UK’s leading hotel groups QMH UK Ltd.

The contract was carried out over a four week period, which involved upgrading the fire detection systems on 18 hotels, including 12 Holiday Inns, three Best Western hotels and three Crowne Plazas, stretching from Plymouth to Glasgow. Careful co-ordination had to be carried out by Reflex Systems to ensure that the impact of system downtime of the hotel’s systems was kept to a minimum.

Reflex Systems utilised the latest generation Analogue addressable fire detection systems, which the company installed across the hotel group’s accommodation, leisure and conference facilities. The benefit of the new system is that it provides additional peace of mind for the hotel owners and occupiers, it also future-proofs the existing systems infrastructure so that the latest technologies & product ranges can be utilised and that they are fully compliant with the latest legislation which is backed up & maintained throughout the year by Reflex Systems. 

Paul Buttery, Fire & Security Business Manager of Reflex Systems, said: “This latest upgrade shows a great commitment to the continued enhancement of their fire safety systems by QMH UK. It was a fairly complex operation to upgrade all their systems and vital that we could co-ordinate the integration of the new with the existing system infrastructure with the minimum amount of disruption to normal operations. This was carried out quickly and efficiently by our experienced team.”

Omar Nicholls, from QMH, said: “Reflex provided a good service, executed with precision, competitively priced and flexible to work within a 24-7 business.”

Reflex Systems employs experienced and qualified design and installation engineers who can ensure compliance to the latest legislation, providing peace of mind for customers. The company also provides cost effective conventional fire detection systems for smaller applications such as retail, commercial office space and industrial units, through to fully networked large-scale addressable integrated systems for applications, such as shopping centre’s, hospitals, education and industrial environments.

Increasingly fire systems integrate with other security and safety technologies, such as access control, CCTV, disabled refuge and public address arrangements and Reflex Systems has the capabilities to offer a unified approach to a building’s complete fire and security systems. The company has secured BAFE Gold (British Approvals for Fire and Equipment) and NSI (National Security Inspectorate) Gold accreditations.
