About Project:

YASA is a world-renowned innovator in electric motors, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz. Their advanced electric motor technology is more power and torque dense, whilst being more compact and lighter than the vast majority of electric propulsion systems on the road today. YASA operate from a number of sites across Oxford and recently Bicester, where our group of companies was entrusted with providing a complete fire and security system solution.

Axis Fire & Security and Dorset Fire & Security were awarded different tasks in different units, including fire and intruder alarms, CCTV, access control, and fire extinguisher installation.

Our group of companies was asked to provide a proposal and quotation for the supply and commission of fire alarm additions incorporating manual call points and automatic fire detection in accordance with British Standard BS5839 Part 1. The installation includes smoke and heat detection, sounders, visual alarm devices, manual call points, and FAAST aspirator detection to ensure compliance.

Axis Fire & Security installed an advanced online access control system that meets EN 50133 standards. Our system provides numerous benefits, including workplace security, employee access tracking, and theft prevention. We installed a 16-door access control system at each location, including class 2 proximity readers, surface-mounted magnetic door locks, push-to-exit buttons, emergency break glass units, access control panels, desktop readers, and proximity fobs. Additionally, we provided a controlling PC and monitor for networking use.

Furthermore, we installed Texecom equipment to secure the premises from intruders. Our Grade 2 alarm system features 33 wide-angle detectors, magnetic contacts, a remote keypad, expander panel, and dual path signalling unit. In unit 4, we installed a Texecom En-G3 Premier Elite panel, Risco iWise DT detectors, heavy-duty surface contacts, Texecom Odyssey backplates with covers, and programmed 10 proximity fobs for easy access.

Additionally, our client in unit 4 inquired about fire extinguishers. Fire extinguishers play a vital role in any fire protection plan, preventing catastrophic damage to property and loss of life. We supplied, commissioned, and wall-mounted 6L AFF Foam extinguishers and 2kg Co2 extinguishers located within main entrances and fire exit escape routes. Furthermore, we supplied and wall-mounted a fire blanket in the first-floor kitchen.

To complete the project, we supplied and installed 16 state-of-the-art Dahua CCTV cameras. Our installation team approached this project with enthusiasm, working tirelessly to ensure perfection in every detail. Their impressive attention to detail resulted in a skilful and precise installation.
