1.I chose to buy from SSP as, when sourcing the Visitor Book, your site was one of the main ones to come up. I also liked the choice of different sizes, prices, orientation (eg portrait or landscape) etc of what you could provide.
2.Having received the book and backboard I ordered, I am very pleased with the quality and professional look of these products. Unfortunately, as this is something new being introduced to our Reception, I have not had the go-ahead from management to start using these yet.
3.The ordering process was simple, clear and straight-forward and the order arrived exactly when expected and was securely packaged.
4.I cannot see any areas necessary for improvement in your service and would be very happy to use you again.
5.I did not deal with a particular individual, it was all done online.
Rating: 5/5

1.We have plenty of Tamtorque clamps but needed some more power bits, I did a Google search, browsed through a few results, one wouldn’t sell bits without selling the clamps, but we have plenty already, so I continued the search and you had a good price and very good customer reviews.
2.The product is as expected, exactly what we needed.
3. Price is good, no hassle, easy to order, reviews clear to see.
4. I didn’t get a confirmation email after ordering, which I kept meaning to double check but never got round to. I was about to check when I received the email saying the order was out for delivery, but it was about a week later. So maybe an automated email at the ordering stage – I did check my junk folder but still didn’t see one.

External IP66 rated Water-tight Fire Alarm Call Point Cover

SSP No: 15507

RRP £80.00 (£96.00 inc vat)

NOW £70.85 (£85.02 inc vat)

Featuring a sealed backbox, this weatherproof break glass, switch and button cover is designed to be installed outside or in harsh or wet environments.

Incorporating a completely sealed European standard single gang socket back box, this enclosure is designed to accommodate almost any button or break glass unit. Some of these are shown in related products below.

When should this cover be used?
Primarily all of SSP’s button covers shown in this section of the website are designed to prevent accidental or malicious misuse of essential break glass units, switches and door release and stop buttons. This IP66 enclosure has been developed specifically for housing buttons and break glass units outside or in harsh environments.

Previous buyers of this product have bought them for use outside, unclean manufacturing environments, offshore installations, swimming pools and car washes.

What does the IP66 mean?
The enclosed back box, 20mm thread point and sealed mounting plate are IP 66 rated. This means that this enclosure is "dust tight" and protected against “heavy seas or powerful jets of water”.

However, it must be stated that if the cover is briefly in an open position the IP rating does not apply, as the elements will be able – in part – to get to your button, switch or break glass unit.

Text on Your Enclosure

As standard the following text appears on the coloured area of this enclosure:

In case of fire, lift cover break glass.

In case of emergency, lift cover break glass to open door

In case of emergency, lift cover push button
