Customer Feedback

Andy Clarke, Operations Director at Orbit Care Services, says “We have worked with Tek Troniks previously, on larger leak detection installations, so we were very confident that they would provide the same high quality solution for this customer application.”

“Due to Tek Troniks offering a wireless solution for leak detection we were able to meet the needs of having in-room alarm capabilities and providing a secondary alarm notification in the reception via the D3 base station. A wired solution would have been impossible to install.”

“Our engineers found the installation of the equipment quick and simple, we used Tek Troniks to commission the system just to ensure all was working correctly.”

“I have personally found the Tek Troniks team to be knowledgeable, supportive and to do what they promise to do. When looking for leak detection solutions Tek Troniks are my first call for help.”
