Hochiki partner wins hospital contract

TEES FIRE Systems (TFS) Limited won a contract to install hybrid fire protection at the University Hospital of North Tees. It is part of Hochiki Europe’s systems partners network, which recognises it as having ‘extensive expertise in the life safety and security industry’. Under the contract, TFS Limited will specify

‘innovative’ Hochiki products that ‘boasted the highest compliance to standards, flexibility and unrivalled reliability’. Work began in June 2018, and is expected to be completed by summer 2020. Kevin Hynes, managing director of TFS

Limited, stated: ‘When our tender for the North Tees Hospital contract was successful, we were praised for our technical knowledge, which is a testament to the hard work of our

sales team, and our status as an Hochiki Europe Systems Partner.’ Mark Smith, UK sales manager at

Hochiki Europe, added: ‘Installing life safety systems in healthcare environments can be challenging, due to the complex layout of these buildings and the vulnerability of occupants. As well as keeping disruption to a minimum, it’s also important that the new installation does not compromise the functionality of existing systems. ‘Over the next two years, we will work

closely with TFS Limited to ensure that the new fire alarm system will provide the highest levels of safety from the very moment it is installed, to best protect staff, patients and the premises.’
