Fire Alarm Upgrade – West Lakes Science Park – West Cumbria

A job from a few weeks back was the upgrade of an old analogue addressable fire alarm system in this office building in West Cumbria. Working tirelessly over a weekend to limit disruption, we carried out a full like for like replacement. For the detection we used Apollo’s XP95/Discovery range and for the main control panel we installed a new MX-PRO 5 from Advanced Electronics.

All done on time for a happy customer!

Welcome to PWS Systems Lewis Johnstone as our first apprentice engineer

Our very first apprentice and a look towards the future of PWS Systems. Lewis has recently joined us in October 2020.

Lewis achieved superb GCSE results during his time at Trinity School in Carlisle. From leaving school, Lewis worked in retail and most recently worked at Centre Parcs. Thankfully for us, he decided to seek an apprenticeship within the Fire & Security industry and applied with us. Lewis now has an excellent opportunity to forge a great career for himself and we are in no doubt he will do just that.

Like many other young lads, Lewis enjoys going to the gym and playing Rugby. He is also a big Newcastle United fan and from what we can gather spends many hours on his X Box.

Most importantly for us, Lewis shares our values and enthusiasm to help us provide a friendly and professional service.

“I am delighted with the service provided by PWS Systems.  My dealings with Peter, Joe and their team has always been handled promptly and professionally.

PWS Systems were a pleasure to deal with installing our new CCTV and alarm systems at a competitive price.  They also service these each year to provide me with reassurance everything is working as it should.
