    You have digressed a little, i'm not a professional alarm fitter so trade prices are irrelevant. Oh i'm sorry, correct me if i'm wrong but isn't this a DIY forum where DIY'ers can ask for advice on the best way to approach a task. As I said above, i'm not a professional alarm fitter, just...

    Help connecting relay to panel and internal sounder

    The internal siren is rated at 105dB, that's hardly poxy? I guarantee if I locked you in the cupboard where the panel is installed the noise would not be bearable! It just so happens that the cupboard is well insulated and the internal siren output is somewhat reduced throughout the rest...

    Help connecting relay to panel and internal sounder

    Thank you. I also have a programmable relay output on the panel rated at 100ma if this makes it any simpler? I can set the polarity of this and program it to either close or open on a siren trigger event.

    Subfloor flatness, would this need levelling? please help

    That's what I thought however i've also read the following: "Make sure your sub-floor is flat enough to receive your new flooring. A bumpy floor will still remain a bumpy floor, + or – 5mm over 2 metres is the accepted guide. To check this lay a 2M (6ft approx) straight edge on the floor in...

    My layout for engineered wood floor, feedback appreciated

    Thanks for the feedback. I will do a another design this evening and see how it works out. About the staggering - all I have done is use the offcut from the previous row to start the next row. Are you saying it would be better to use different lengths (which may mean cutting a fresh board)...

    My layout for engineered wood floor, feedback appreciated

    Hello guys, I have knocked up the attached layout for my living room. The drawing is to scale. Room dimensions are 4.4 x 3.2m. The engineered boards are 180mm wide x 1800mm long - they have a bevelled edge so I feel it is important to get the layout spot on since the lines will of...
