Housing

Our years of experience in this sector and in particular the Social Housing sector has enabled us to acquire a sound understanding of the types of products and solutions to assist property and asset management.  We have developed innovative designs within our product portfolio to improve the living environment for low, medium and high rise accommodation as well as sheltered housing. Products are subject to rigorous industry standard testing with third party certification.  

Applications include the protection and securing of communal areas with recognised high performance systems; compartmentation with communal fire doorsets and residential flat entrance fire doorsets:  estate vehicular access  and the secure provision of premises plans and information to the fire and rescue service.  

Organisations we work with include:

Affinity Sutton, Contour Housing, One Housing Group, Guiness Partnership HA, Pennine Housing, Hackney Homes, Royal Borough of Kingston, Peabody Trust, Stevenage homes, Hull City Council, Lewisham Homes, Homes in Haringey, Bpha, Shoreline Housing Partnership, Brent Housing Partnership, Family Mosaic, Homes in Havering,  West North West Homes, St Leger Homes,  Cheshire Peaks and Plains, Lambeth Living,  Salix Homes, Barnet Homes and South Essex Homes, Centrepoint, Hambrick Homes, Together Housing Group, Luminus Group amongst others.

"The quality of the product is extremely high, which is the reason we specified it. We wanted to ensure that our communal doors in multi storey blocks of flats were both robust and secure from fire. We have now refurbished 8 blocks of flats using the product and have very positive feedback, both from residents and staff."

Bryan Simpson - Together Housing Group

"Luminus are currently using 11 Premise Information Boxes, 1 at our largest block of flats in Essex, 1 on a large housing development of blocks of flats in Cambridge managed by ourselves and 9 in our sheltered schemes.

The service provided was excellent and the Premise Information Boxes provide a secure, recognisable focal point to provide the fire service with up to date relevant information on access, fixed fire fighting systems and specific customer needs.

The Boxes have been welcomed by the Fire Services in the Brigade areas in which they have been provided."

Gary Pyle - Fire Risk Assessor - Luminus Group
