Why Choose ESP UK


Why ESP UK is Number One in Electrical Security

One can never stress the importance of security too much, and whether it’s for the home or commercial establishments, it is necessary you have the best setup possible, and in this case it’s hard to beat ESP UK. For many years now ESP has been at the top of the heap as far as UK electrical security is concerned, and while the competition is stiff, the company is taking all the necessary steps to stay ahead.

A Wide Range of Products

ESP was founded more than 20 years ago with the goal of providing the best security solutions for the electrical industry. Two decades have passed and the company has set a high standard by developing security products covering all possible needs. Contractors and commercial establishments in need of fire and electronic security can choose from a vast array of CCTV cameras, DVR recording, covert cameras, Digiview CCTV systems and PTZ cameras among others.
The company also offers various products in other categories such as external area protection (EAP), video door entry, access control and their new line of Duceri Emergency Lighting solutions. Each of these categories is comprised of various products so customers will have more to choose from.

Advice and Training

ESP is not just known for its vast security products but also their training seminars: the company offers a diverse range of security solutions as well as advice and free training to ensure clients receive the best service possible. In addition to these, ESP also provides extensive support for their clients regardless of the product or service they avail of.
While ESP UK has maintained its edge over the competition, they are not resting on their laurels and instead focused on innovation. Apart from their high end CCTV cameras, the company also offers an assortment of entry systems for single, multi door and vandal resistant devices as well.

ERF Electrical Stockists of JCC Lighting!


How JCC is Changing the Lighting Solutions Industry

JCC recently unveiled Toughbay, its industrial level LED fittings, and at the same time the company also launched their very first multifunction sensor, and together these lighting solutions will provide savings of up to 50% when compared to traditional fluorescent and metal halide fittings.

State of the Art LED Technology

JCC, and its parent company Leviton, have developed new LED based technologies to provide superior performance for commercial and domestic use. The problem with typical industrial fittings is they are not suitable for controls, where as LED is designed exactly for that. Another issue with metal halide lamps is they need a cooling down period of at least 15 minutes after switch off, rendering them useless with occupancy sensors that save energy.

Fluorescent lamps can be turned on and off, but that repeated action will reduce its lifespan by up to 75%, making it expensive. JCC LED on the other hand, doesn’t suffer from these problems and can be used with microwave sensing to cut down energy consumption even more.

Dependable Products

The standard JCC LED solutions reduce power and energy usage by a significant amount, but the Leviton Multifunction Sensor does even better. The Sensor is 1-10V dimmable so if you want to use dimmable now or sometime in the future you can do so. This is true not just for the Leviton Sensor but the manufacturer’s other products too.


Lastly, JCC has established a reputation for being innovative, and through the years the company has made an effort to integrate energy savings into each of their products. Other companies try to cram as many features as possible in their products, raising the cost in the process. JCC on the other hand, is focused on the essentials and ensures you get what you want, namely an affordable and reliable lighting solution.
