Excellent service

The customer service over the telephone was fantastic - really helpful both initially on advice about the product I was looking for, and latterly when I was chasing the order. However, delivery was appalling. Despite being on the Scottish mainland I had to pay the ridiculous 'Highlands & Islands' surcharge which meant my package (measuring approx. A5 envelope size) cost me £35 in delivery charges. Added to that, I ordered on Thursday afternoon and the package arrived the following Tuesday (not exactly next day delivery). I have dealt with other companies who do not add this restrictive & unfair charge to their delivery for anyone who happens to live within what is a huge postcode area, covering not only 'remote' islands but also a significant part of the Scottish mainland, and suggest that you look at other courier options. We may be a small percentage of your customers but this charge is really unacceptable. For this reason I could not recommend your company and if I had not required this product in such a hurry, I would have gone elsewhere to order.

SSP Response: 

Good morning Helen

I have looked at your order and feedback below. I am really pleased to see you were happy with the customer service and product, as we take customer satisfaction very seriously. I can see you were only charged £16.65 for delivery which we informed you at time of order. I can appreciate your frustration at the charges, but unfortunately this is the charge DPD charge us. We do not make any profit on delivery whatsoever, we just pass on our charge. As DPD class this as a Highlands delivery, it is a two day service, which is beyond our control unfortunately. The goods left us the same day we received your order. We do review our courier service regularly to make sure it is the most cost effective, but we do have to balance this with reliability, as I am sure you can appreciate. 

Thank you for your order and for taking the time to complete our survey, which is so important to make sure we are always striving for the very best service.

Have a lovely week.

Call Point & Button Covers

Designed to prevent accidental and malicious false fire alarms, SSP’s Direct range of call point covers, break glass covers and push button covers are ideal for use in schools, colleges, nursing and care homes, hospitals and shopping centres.

Aesthetically pleasing, yet tough and robust, our core range of 3mm thick polycarbonate covers are colour coded for use on the following devices:


Our core range of covers come in three variants: lift up, locking and alarmed:

Standard Covers: Deterring False Fire Alarms
Our best selling standard  covers are to protect against passers-by accidentally knocking the alarm buttons. Perhaps more importantly, they also act as a visual deterrent/barrier to those wishing to maliciously raise a false fire alarm.

Locking Covers: Restricting False Fire Alarms
This product has been developed to restrict opportunist, false fire alarms and prevent fire alarm call points from being activated in psychiatric institutes, nursing homes, care homes and certain schools. Featuring a frangible lock, this designed-to-break lock will only give way under force if it is opened with genuine intent.

Alarmed Covers: Discouraging False Alarms & Alerting Staff
Upon lifting these covers, they release an uncomfortably loud 96 decibel alarm sound to draw immediate attention to the prankster. This in turn should deter him or her from going one step further and pressing the call point itself.
