Learning the Lessons of the Education Market

Amthal Fire & Security has featured in the latest edition of School Building Magazine to highlight the key issues in providing security for schools and how to offer ultimate peace of mind for staff, pupils and visitors.

Starting right at the basics, the exclusive piece looks at how to achieve the grade in terms of physical security and fire safety measures with a complete and comprehensive site survey, whilst staying top of the class by complying with current industry stands and Building Regulations.

Amthal Fire & Security also uses its extensive experience in the education market to showcase how it has worked through the specification process for security and worked out intelligent ways of achieving the bespoke requirements of each school site whilst upgrading the controllability and security levels.

Says Jamie Allam, Commercial Director of Amthal Fire & Security: "As part of our dedicated campaign to raise awareness of security in schools and learning environments, we have produced this article as guidance for site and estate managers to understand the process of upgrading fire and security systems.

"Furthermore, we want to show how with the right partnership in place and working with a company with established experience in the sector, it doesn't need to be a time and resource consuming, or costly process."

The article is now available to read in the latest edition of School Building.
