Battery Powered Scaffold Alarms, any good????
Updated: Feb 1, 2019
We at Halt Alarms Ltd have been using battery powered scaffold alarms , also know as wireless alarms, successfully for a number of years. They have grown in popularity recently as they address the dreaded issue of , as to whom, provides 'the power' for the alarm system?
They are also handy where there is limited or no power 'on site' so a conventional mains powered scaffold alarm cannot be used and are generally fob operated.
As mentioned, our battery scaffold alarm systems are set and unset via a fob, or wireless keypad, which are neatly stored in a handy combination lockable box, out on the scaffolding.
We at Halt Alarms, only use the latest intelligent passive infra red detectors, with our battery scaffold alarms to ensure that there are no false alarms and that the property is adequately protected. Other companies use cheaper 'stock' pirs which they tape onto the scaffolding, which are prone to false alarms, as they incorrectly detect heat signatures from passing vehicles, direct sunlight and heat from boiler exhaust ports.
Our battery alarm systems can easily protect an access tower, such as the one pictured here, on a Central London commercial property with ease, where there was 'no power', but wanted protection.
All our battery systems are visible and are supplied with signage, to ensure that they are visible to ALL.
We generally supply our clients with pictures of the install and a short operational video, sent through WhatsApp, showing them the box code, instructions and how to operate the system.
In summery, battery alarm systems are versatile, easy to operate and are great for smaller installations, We however always recommend that a mains powered scaffold alarm system is used for larger applications or higher profile projects.
Thanks for reading.
