High Firs


High Firs, Radlett


High Firs is a select residential location set amongst giant pine trees in Radlett, Hertfordshire. Built in the 1980s the original developers approached Anchor for their recommendations for an entry phone solution, which was accepted and installed to both blocks of apartments. Little did they think that the system would still be operational and still being regularly serviced by the original installation team nearly forty years later!

The Problem

Recently the blocks were improved by the addition of penthouse suites, in a major building project. Anchor were again invited for their recommendations, which led to the upgrading of the systems to include the new flats, and replacement of the entire entry system.

The Anchor Solution

Anchor didn’t only choose a robust and long lasting product for the first installation, but actually specified a product from the same source the second time round too; Urmet door entry products are well built and have exceptional button wearing characteristics, making them Anchor's clear manufacturer of choice for this type of installation.  Hardwearing and easy clean stainless steel surfaces, illuminated etched numerals and ergonomically designed handsets make these systems a pleasure to use. Coupled with either appropriate door locking mechanisms and the option of automatic door openers, High Firs' security and convenience is guaranteed - probably for another 30 years, and now including proximity access control and video caller identification.

The outcome

High Firs management remain committed to Anchor's ability to provide a solution that is both well thought through technically and also from a user's perspective. The liaison with the builders and the electrical contractor worked well and the project was a success all round.
