    Featured Case Study

    St Edwards School

    The majority of the school’s students are boarders, which the school accommodates in eleven accommodation blocks. Chris Lewis Fire & Security was initially asked to install access control to the boarding houses in 2001. Four years later, it was commissioned to upgrade and network the access control system to provide more flexible access to staff and students.
