PEL Services has announced it has completed the design, supply and installation of a package of key safety systems for a further Debenhams store.  As with numerous other Debenhams stores around the UK, the new store in North Lincolnshire Shopping Park, Scunthorpe has been fitted with Fire Detection, Security and Public Address (PA) & Music systems by PEL Services.

The new store, which occupies 40,000 sq ft across two floors, is protected by a comprehensive store-wide ‘open protocol’ Fire Detection system and PEL’s Refuge Call, which allows a disabled person to alert the central station to their predicament, enabling appropriate action to be taken.

A PA system, which is used for safety and general announcements and to broadcast in store radio and advertisements under a company-wide MEDIAinSTORE contract, has also been fitted by PEL.

As with any major store, security was a key consideration and PEL has installed Access Control, Intruder Alarm and Video Door Entry systems as part of the overall store security requirements.

For PEL Services, the real challenge for this site was the quick turnaround, as managing director Ken Faulks stated: “PEL Services has developed an excellent working relationship with Debenhams over the years.  We serve the retailer with a quality package of cost-effective systems and provide a level of support to match.  We have the resources and the expert team to enable us to provide this level of service and Debenhams recognises this through its continued use of our services across its stores, including our MEDIAinSTORE Music In-Store Radio and Advertising service which is now distributed throughout the Debenhams estate.”

PEL Services was recently responsible for the successful design, supply and installation of a Bose Professional Digital Sound and Public Address system at Debenhams flagship Oxford Street store as part of its extensive £25m refurbishment.  The sound system features 650 ceiling speakers, making it one of the largest Bose ceiling speaker installations in Europe.

For over 35 years PEL Services has been a leading UK systems company designing, supplying, installing and commissioning sound, fire, security & audio visual solutions.  In addition PEL provides a range of service agreements including routine maintenance and fully comprehensive cover, on third party equipment as well as PEL systems, throughout the UK and Eire.
