Since its introduction, the WES wireless alarm system has become recognised as the system of choice for the UK construction top 50, due to its ease of use, system reliability and the highest level of third-party certification. WES+ remains the only wireless fire alarm system for construction that complies with EN54 part 25.
WES+ is engineered to meet the harmonised fire detection and alarm systems standard EN54, and therefore meets the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation. WES+ sets the safety standard for construction site evacuations.
WES+ is an inherently safe, practical solution for construction sites. Because it’s wireless and battery powered there’s no need for networks of cabling that could be trip hazards or could cause issues as sites change and grow. You’ll also find that operating a wireless system significantly reduces the cost and time of installation – units can easily be moved around the site as required and can be re-used on other projects.
When it comes to safety systems, reliability and performance are vital, so we’ve made sure that WES+ is designed and manufactured in the UK to ISO9001 quality standards and using the best components. To make sure we delivered the best possible system, we worked directly with two leading UK construction companies in the development of WES+.
WES+ units are fitted with Category 1 wireless receivers, which are the highest level, most reliable wireless receivers on the market – they’re specifically recommended for use in systems protecting human life.
- High Performance. The system uses best quality Category 1, Euro-harmonised radio in compliance with European standards covering the use of radio technology in emergency equipment (ETSI 300-220-1)
- Cost-effective. There’s no wiring, so no need for specialist installation.
- Battery life tested for 3+ years. Keep your replacement costs and waste to a minimum.
- Practical. You can have an unlimited number of units on one site, quickly add and remove units as the build progresses and re-use WES+ units on future projects.
- Dedicated helpline & training. Fully supported
