When staff at the Laura Ashley Manor Hotel in Elstree found themselves in urgent need of 32 pillow alarms to cater for a large party of deaf guests, the Agrippa Pillow Fire Alarm proved the perfect solution.
The 4-star Manor Hotel, set in 10 acres of gardens and natural woodland, with views overlooking the Hertfordshire countryside and central London, was bought by Laura Ashley PLC in 2012, making this the first of the company’s boutique hotels.
CEO of Corus and Laura Ashley Hotels Andrew Clayton, comments: ‘Geofire responded quickly and efficiently when we found ourselves in urgent need of 32 pillow alarms for a large party arriving in two days time. The alarms arrived the following day as promised, and they were quick and easy to set up. Our guests had a good night’s sleep secure in the knowledge that they would be alerted swiftly in the unlikely event of an emergency. The feedback from our guests was very positive; they appreciated our understanding of their needs, and they appreciated the quality of the product. We will certainly be working with Geofire in the future and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality product and efficient service.’
The Agrippa Pillow Fire Alarm is a battery powered, wire-free unit with a pad attachment that simply goes under a pillow. If the fire alarm sounds the pillow pad vibrates, high intensity LED lights flash and an LCD screen displays ‘fire’. The alarm is compact and portable (it comes in a carry bag), so can be moved around a building as required. It uses digital, wire-free technology with two preset trigger levels plus an optional ‘listen and learn’ function that listens for the unique sound of a specific fire or smoke alarm.
Features include: No installation, portable, ensures compliance with elements of the Equality Act 2010. LCD time and alarm clock includes flashing white LED visual warning. Complies with the highest European standards. Product design conserves battery power, with expected battery life of up to two years. Visual warning of low battery and radio signal fault.
