flex7 Products – Made in Britain

2021-02-23T12:02:13+00:00

Choosing to use flex7 not only guarantees you’ll be getting a great quality product, but our policy to manufacture in Britain mitigates, as far as is possible at least, many of the potential supply chain issues we’d be exposed to were we to opt to work with partners in more far flung places than Cumbria or the West Midlands.

Wakefield Fire Station

2020-11-20T15:57:41+00:00

Specified by UR-EKA Lighting and Controls Ltd, flex7 were able to offer a bespoke lighting control solution that linked to the fire station's alarm system. Important lights in the building were networked together using flex7 network leads. A special flex7 Control Pack was connected to the alarm panel in the station, and receives a volt-free signal whenever the alarm goes off

CPR Compliance – In Brief

2020-02-06T14:45:09+00:00

Although there are some exceptions, generally speaking it is illegal to install any cable that was placed on the market on or after 1st July 2017 that is not CPR compliant. We believe that CPR class CCA is destined to become the benchmark for many commercial installations in the UK. It provides the benefits of reduced reaction to fire in tandem with the robust verification process of System 1+.

Integrated Emergency Test – The benefits

2019-10-07T16:56:37+00:00

flex7 lighting controls are available with the added benefit of integrated emergency test. This feature can save time during both installation, and when carrying out periodic testing. Our lighting controls can easily be networked together meaning that rather than testing each circuit or phase separately, you can simply use one master key switch to test emergency luminaires across multiple circuits or even phases.

Whatever the type of installation, be it a school, hospital, office or retail outlet, areas where luminaires are controlled by a simple switch on the wall are greatly outnumbered by those incorporating something a bit more.. involved. What should you consider before selecting lighting controls?
