Ramtech's R & D investment increases product range25 July 2012
.Nottingham based Ramtech Electronics has expanded its award winning Wireless Emergency System (WES) range with the addition of new smoke and heat detection products designed specifically to give 24 hour protection against fire on construction sites.
The new battery-powered smoke and heat alarms are set to revolutionise conventional hard-wired fire detection systems, as their quick and easy installation means they can be operational in minutes, providing 24 hour protection against fire on site.
The Ramtech in- house R &D team have been instrumental in bringing the new battery powered smoke and heat alarms to market. Paul Henson, Ramtech Sales and Marketing Director, explains; 'Our investment in R & D has enabled us to move forward with our ambitious growth plans and launch these new products. Many of our current WES customers have been asking for this type of product, so adding detection to the range means we can now provide total site protection.'
The new battery powered smoke and heat alarms can also be linked to the recently launched Base Station which links to individual alarms to allow quick and easy pinpointing of fire or potential fire. This also features an option to provide SMS text alerts in the event of an alarm being activated allowing personnel to keep tight control on fire safety when they are off site.
Paul continues, 'The main benefit of our new smoke and heat detectors are that they are easy to fit and operate, have no cables and therefore no installation costs. As the units are incorporated into the main WES network, not only will they give an early warning of fire to all staff during the day, but the site will also remain protected out of hours. Linking with the base station will add to the accuracy and ease of use of the system, this is particularly important with detection as should a fire break out it needs to be dealt with quickly to avoid it spreading.
Our system makes this easy and will ensure that should a fire occur damage and disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.'
There is no limit to the number of detection units that can be incorporated on the system, making it suitable for the smallest refurbishment job, to the very largest multi-storey or multi-site project.
To make reconfiguration even easier when moving sites Ramtech has also introduced the new android touch screen tablet operating system for the WES system, the new android tablet enables the user to reconfigure and access alarm and testing history from any unit via a USB port.
The award-winning WES solution is currently being used on over 800 construction sites across the UK.
This latest addition is set to be welcomed by an industry keen to save time and money, without having to compromise on quality and safety.
