Fire Detection & Evacuation System


Tag Systems have had the pleasure to work with Carillions Project Commercial Manager for the Royal Liverpool University Hospital contract, the feedback from which has been how delighted they are with the work which Tag Systems has carried out. The Fire Detection and Evacuation system was installed with the minimum amount of disruption and provided the perfect temporary solution to ensure the safety of Carillion staff was given the priority it warrants. The coverage of the system for Phase 1 is over 10 floors and therefore monitors all the key areas of the build. The advice and help given by Tag Systems during the planning stage proved invaluable.
