Charitable Work

We support the local community by sponsoring local charities, such as the Alford Corn Exchange, the Alford library and we involve local artists in the development of promotional materials. We also support local schools with fire safety activities and work placements.

Customer Service

We believe that we should recommend the products and services that you really need and no more. In fact we will always try to save you money and will recommend more economic solutions if these are available. This philosophy is reflected by our sales staff and our service engineers. None of our sales or service staff therefore receive any performance bonus. All our staff are paid fixed wages, taking the pressure off them to force products onto our customers that are not really needed.

We are always looking for ways to improve so we ask our customers to complete a 3rd party review. This feedback is continuously assessed by our dedicated team to see what changes can be implemented to improve the buying experience for our customers. See our customer feedback

Environmental Protection

safelincs-headquaters

Safelincs is serious about a greener way of operating. We work actively on minimising our impact on the environment and use 100% Renewable Electricity, producing most of our energy with our 1000sqm Solar PV installation, which produce 146kW of power. All of our interior lighting for our 80,000 sqf of offices and warehouses is provided by energy-saving LED lighting.

With the help of our manufacturers, we have managed to replace much of the plastic packaging materials and create new packaging materials through the recycling and re-manufacturing of our old cardboard packaging.

We have signed up to Valpak's WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Distributor Take-Back Scheme (Phase 5 Registration ID: 501327). Private households can therefore drop off their electronic and electrical fire safety waste at their municipal recycling centre when they purchase new products from us. To find your nearest recycling centre, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk.

We also offer responsible recycling of the safety products that we sell, working with certified environmentally friendly partners.

 

Investing in the Future

We are financing research into improved fire escape equipment and have registered patents for a number of new fire escape systems.

Safelincs places students and pupils in its technical department for work experience and is supporting local schools both with donations as well as IT related training.
