We have recently started using the 'one sign-in' system and initially selected SSP due to price.
I ordered some refills shortly afterwards but ordered the wrong ones.
Gwyn Ewens was very helpful at sorting this out - sending out the correct ones straightaway and organising the collection of the incorrect ones (the latter at no cost to ourselves).
His intervention has ensured I will come back to SSP in the future.

The signs were ordered from SSP as they offered a service to give customisation, supplying proofs of artwork as well as changes, at a very reasonable price. Communications and delivery were efficient and fast, so I’d be happy recommend.

I looked on the internet for a fire hydrant marker sign.
Your site provided detailed information on what to do. The ordering process was easy and the sign came very quickly. All round a great service, 5/5.

1.What made you choose to buy these products from SSP? Your site was easy to find for the safety cover my client needed.
2.What did you think of the product? The safety cover was just as it was described and appeared on your site. Fire Home Safety officers approved this product prior to me ordering it on behalf of my client.
3.What did we get right? Delivery name and address had to be different from payment name and address but this was not a problem. Delivery was quick.
4.What could we improve? Slight misspelling of clients name but this did not effect delivery or necessary paperwork.
5. Is there anybody that you have dealt with that deserves a special mention in our team meeting? I'm sorry I don't have a note of the gentleman's name who took the order but I can only thank him for the efficient and helpful way he was able to deal with my questions, order and payment.
Finally, out of 5 what would you rate us? I rate the service I received 5
How the M3.5 security screw protects people from electrical dangers
The reasons for security screws and security fixings being bought from this website are far ranging, but none are perhaps as strange as in this case.
The background on SSP's new multi-purpose domestic fire extinguisher
Whether the message is a fire safety one or a general safety message, the problems facing sign makers are the same: what is the best way of conveying essential safety instructions - through pictures or words?

Secure Call Point Cover with Frangible Lock (C531/G/FL) surface mount
SSP No: 5872
RRP £45.00 (£54.00 inc vat)
NOW £38.95 (£46.74 inc vat)
Please click the link to see our new Call Point Cover Video
This unique locking Call Point Cover has been developed to eradicate malicious false fire alarms. Unlike SSP Direct’s standard call point covers, this product offers an actual barrier against malicious alarms as well as a visual one.
Incorporating a frangible lock, the person wishing to maliciously or perhaps absent-mindedly lift the call point cover is met with real resistance when they try to raise the cover up to press the alarm call point. However, is important to note the frangible lock will break when lifted with genuine force in an emergency (Replacement frangible lock can be bought in packs of ten at the link below)
Another feature with this frangible lock is they can be released with the snake eye security key provided. This means the call point can be serviced/tested without breaking and wasting the existing frangible lock.
This particular surface mount cover is equipped with our standard 30mm spacer, giving you 78mm of depth. If you require the larger 50mm spacer, please see the extra deep version of this emergency exit cover
This call point cover requires little DIY experience to fit. It is easily retro-fitted over previously the installed call point using the screws and rawl plugs it is supplied with.
Highly Recommended for….
Schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, shopping centre and all public buildings where there is a history or a threat of false fire alarms.
Surface Mounted Model
This cover is designed to go over call points that surface mounted on to the wall. The spacer and the rear has “pop-outs” to accommodate any trunking leading to the call point.
The cover comes with the standard message:
In case of emergency, lift cover break glass to open door

Thanks for all your help Danny - I've ordered the cover, locks, spare key and custom message.
Must say I was very impressed with the website layout, the way you guys use videos to showcase products and the responsiveness of your customer services. A refreshing contrast to my usual online experience!

5. Out of 5 (with 5 being great) how would you rate us? 5+
Do I have to remove the break glass unit or button before installing this cover?
No. It is retro-fittable. In plain English this means it will fit over the top of your call point or push button. Simply drill four holes around the device, insert RAWL plugs provided and screw the cover into place. If there is any trunking or conduit (wires) going into the button or break glass, be sure to order the surface mounted version of this cover.
What is the difference between a flush mount and surface mounted cover?
Perhaps a little confusingly, flush or surface refers to the button or break glass unit itself. If the button is flush it is built into the wall. If it is surface mounted it is screwed on top of the wall. In essence if the button is inset within the wall it will not protrude that far, nor will it have wires going into the top of it. In this instance you will need a flush mounted cover.
What do the different colours mean?
The truth, the colour coding often ties with the colours of the buttons they are covering, particularly in the case of red and green.
Red covers should go over fire alarm call points. Green should go over break glass press to exit buttons. Yellow should go over emergency cut off or shut off buttons and blue is the generic catch all cover that can be used over anything.
Can I use this product in a sports hall?
This cover is made from 3mm thick shatter proof polycarbonate. It is incredibly tough and durable. It also has a curved shape to disperse the pressure of any significant impact across its entire surface. To give you a little reassurance, having been selling this product to sports halls and gyms for many years, we are pleased to say this has never been returned as being unsuitable for this environment.
Can I change the message on the cover?
Yes. Working with the space available we can pretty much show any message you require. However, please be aware that the lead time on doing this is around 5 days.
Can I take the message off?
Yes, easy. We can do it for you or you can do it yourself. All that is required is an Allen key to take the coloured plastic out of the top of this unit. You then would need to peel off the message and screw the plastic back into place. This process takes no more than a minute. if you like, SSP can do this at no extra cost.
Will I need to order an external cover if the button in question is outside?
If the button itself is water proof / weather resistant then in truth you may not need to. The only time you need the order an external cover is when the button or device being covered is not weather proof.
What on earth is a frangible lock?
The polycarbonate lock on the face of this cover is designed to give way if the cover is lifted with extreme force. This unit comes with a two pronged key so the cover can also be opened without breaking the frangible lock.
Can I buy more frangible lock when this one is inevitably broken in an emergency?
Yes, shown in the links below. You can also buy more keys, should extra members of staff need one.
