BBC turns to Safelincs to look after its journalists

Brazillian World Cup 2014 - BBCPresenters and reporters travelling to the World Cup in Brazil have been equipped with smoke alarms, heat alarms and carbon monoxide alarms by Safelincs.
Any organisation that has employees travelling abroad has a duty of care to ensure that their health and safety is protected. The BBC has its people covering football matches in different parts of Brazil and they will be staying in various types of accommodation.
“I’m sure the accommodation the journalists will be staying in will be perfectly safe,” commented Harry Dewick-Eisele, managing director of Safelincs. “However, uptake of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms has not been as great in South America as it has been in the UK, so the BBC is taking very sensible precautions for its employees travelling to the World Cup.”
Safelincs were able to provide the BBC with a comprehensive selection of products at competitive prices, all delivered in timescales that were second to none.

Shipping fire doors to Brazil

Normally, any shipments of wood tend to be shipped from Brazil to the UK. However, we have bucked the trend and have shipped a substantial number of hardwood fire doors (FD30 which stands for thirty minutes fire protection) and fire door fittings to the British Embassy in Brazil!

The British Embassy Brasilia is responsible for all political and cultural relations between the UK and Brazil.  All members of the Embassy need to be protected against the spread of fire in the event of emergency. Fire Doors help to reduce the danger of fire spreading, and allow more time to escape from a building if a fire were to occur.

Buying fire doors from Safelincs is very easy, as we have a fire door configurator that takes our customers through very clear step by step process until at the end the customers have a fire door with the exactly right dimensions, the right glazing (if required) and all fire door hardware needed for the customer’s application.
