Easy-to-fit Freedor brings more customer demand
“I have more Freedor in the van now and have been recommending it to other places as an appropriate and compliant solution for fire doors.”
Established in 1992 Churchesfire is a nationwide company that supplies and installs fire safety solutions for prevention, detection, containment and evacuation.
Gary Kavanagh, Alarm Technician at Churchesfire, said: “We supply fire safety solutions for our customers, such as fire alarm installations, service maintenance, service visits and we also offer advice on fire standard compliance.”
Gary looked for a wireless and unobtrusive fire safety solution that they could fit for their clients, following a visit to a residential home for the elderly. He said: “The home is a listed building, so we needed a fire door closer with no cables, discreet in design that wouldn’t ruin any of the old décor.”
Gary said: “I worked alongside Fireco previously and had seen that Freedor product worked very well. It made sense for us to start installing it ourselves and get the product out there as there is a need for it. I went to a training session at Fireco and watched one of the technicians install Freedor, which was quite straightforward.”
- More business for Churchesfire
- Happy customers as the device met their requirements
- Compliance with fire regulations.
Following the installation of Freedor at the residential home, Gary said: “Freedor was ideal as it had the perfect look, didn’t stand out and was easy to fit. The unit was installed on the door in the main foyer. The residents really liked Freedor and have since asked us to install more units, which is great.”
Gary also praised the customer service and found Fireco to be a reliable partner. He said: “Fireco provides a helpful service, and the office and technical staff have always been very good. I have more Freedor in the van now and have been recommending it to other places as an appropriate and compliant solution for fire doors.”
