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.

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.

2017-10-17T14:32:47+00:00

On July 1st 2017 a new and mandatory ruling with respect to making a cable’s fire related properties publically available came into force, but rather than diving straight into the specifics it may be more useful to start with something of an overview of how and why it came to be. The burning question (no pun intended) has to be whether there will be an immediate impact on the UK’s construction industry?

2017-10-17T14:37:41+00:00

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?

What you need to know about BIM

2017-10-17T14:39:09+00:00

If you’re involved in the ‘bricks & mortar’ side of the building industry, be it design, specification, procurement, construction, facilities management etc. it’s fair to say that you’ll find yourself at the sharp end of BIM. Some practices have already picked up the baton and are actively introducing it as their preferred option.
