Safelincs has established links with an established Australian Fire Safety company to create an internet presence in Australia. The move followed increased demand from Australian customers for our fire safety products, which could so far only be served from the UK. The new website is due to launch in early spring 2009 and will offer a broad selection of fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and other fire safety equipment.

Safelincs Italy has just finalised the sale of a large number of Ei261D CO detectors to the Italian Air Force. This is the second time the Italian Army has bought this CO detector in large quantities during this year.
The EI261D is a mains-powered CO alarm with digital display manufactured by Irish EI EIectronics, the largest European manufacturer of CO detectors and smoke alarms.
Following the granting of the design rights earlier in the year, Safelincs has now moved to the pre-production tooling stage for the new Safelincs Cavity Fire Escape Ladder, which is designed to fit in the inner leaf of newbuild homes. The ladder and all its elements are completely hidden from view and can be deployed in less time than traditional portable fire escape ladders. The next step is to go through the necessary safety certification as required for the building industry. One building company has already agreed to install these ladders in a number of their homes for final field trials.
Safelincs is passing on the full VAT reduction to you. The company displays VAT inclusive prices and while the VAT reduction will create some rather strange looking end prices, the company felt that it was essential to avoid the temptation to ’round up’.
A CO detector supplied by Safelincs as part of the Kirklees Warmzone project last week detected CO gas the day after it was installed. The CO leak came from a faulty flue and could potentially have been fatal for the family. A reminder of how important it is to have a good CO alarm installed in every house!
Safelincs has received recognition as ‘Investor in People’. Safelincs passed with flying colours. The assessor commented on the unique atmosphere at Safelincs:
‘Safelincs was one of the most impressive small companies I have assessed, in terms of their genuine and fundamental belief in the value and importance of their staff in contributing to the success of the business. There is absolutely no doubt they meet the Investors in People Standard.’
Safelincs has been granted design rights by the UK Patent Office for a new, ground-breaking design of fire escape ladder located in the wall and cavity of new-built homes. This fire escape ladder is totally hidden from sight, is accessible within seconds and can be deployed easily, even by children. The ladder should be available by the end of the 4th quarter 2008
Safelincs Ltd has won a major contract with Kirklees Council to supply up to 100,000 carbon monoxide alarms over the next three years as part of the Kirklees Warm Zone programme.
The Warm Zone home energy efficiency scheme is offering free cavity wall and loft installation to every resident, regardless of their age or income. The importance of carbon monoxide awareness and safety was recognised by Kirklees Council, so all Warm Zone assessed households can request a free carbon monoxide alarm.
“We are very pleased to be associated with this innovative scheme,” said Harry Dewick-Eisele, managing director, Safelincs Ltd. “We were able to show that, as well as meeting or exceeding the required product specifications, we are able to handle the council’s flexible supply requirements. Kirklees Council requires not only large bulk shipments to programme partners, but also thousands of individual shipment to many Kirklees residents. Safelincs also offers customer support which makes it important that each of our telephone operatives can demonstrate full product knowledge and the ability to deal effectively with any queries that may arise.”
All alarms supplied by Safelincs display the Kirklees Council logo and each unit carries a unique seven year guarantee.
