Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 11 Aug. 1999
Format: Hardcover
The fire alarm and emergency lighting sections are poor and superfluous. Although Menvier are acknowldged, in the Preface, and some tables are directly copied from their catalogue, Menviers free Design Handbook covers both subjects much more clearly and fully. Addition line drawings would assist the sometimes awkward text e.g. security detection devices with dimensions and illustrations in use, plus sample layout plans for different building types using various security systems and how they provide cover and protection. The book should concentrate more on its core subject of security and include more illustrations for its design and function.
