He recently acquired new studio premises for a new car restoration TV show and when it came to fitting it out with lighting and security products, Tim Shaw, a long-time fan of ESP products, opted for solutions from the company.
Fire detection, CCTV and emergency lighting and products from ESP, have all been installed in the two floor studio which has been specifically designed by the TV presenter and will be where certain episodes of his show are filmed.
In the new show Tim will be doing what he is most well-known for – restoring classic cars. However, this time it will be with the help of their owners.
The studio has been kitted out with the very best equipment in the automotive industry and according to Tim, the ESP products were on a parr – with their exceptional quality, high performance and reliability noted.
With a studio full of expensive cars and top of the range equipment, a key consideration has been the protection from fire and theft and this is where ESP’s security products came into play. Providing fire protection is the MagDuo two-wire fire alarm system – a highly flexible and adaptable system that is designed to save time and money on the installation process.
CCTV cover is provided with ESP’s Rekor IP system. Having looked into options quite late in the fitting out process, Tim was relieved to find that he wouldn’t need to send power to each camera, with the cabling requirements that it would involve.
Twin Spots from ESP’s Duceri emergency lighting collection have been used to provide vital back up in the case of a power outage. They offer three hours emergency duration, with charge and discharge protection, and feature a vibrant green LED battery charge indicator and push to fit wiring terminals for ease of installation.
A raft of products from across the Scolmore Group of companies have also been installed, including Click metal clad wiring accessories and Ovia Inceptor Slate Backlit Panels and U-Lite light fittings, plus the Flow lighting management system.
With the ground floor of the studio complete and already being used for filming, work has now commenced on duplicating the facilities on the second floor.
