Educational buildings include offices, warehouses, classrooms, Playing areas, a swimming pool, cafes, and restaurants. These are often referred to as multi-use or mixed-use buildings.
To ensure the safety of our children and adults in schools and universities, security must be a priority at all times. Consequently, the entities must ensure their safety by installing CCTV cameras on the premises. The application of this technology ensures a level of security that detects disturbances or other misbehaviours that require immediate attention.
Fire alarm systems use CCTV signals to detect fires and announce the event through Public Address systems, which are essential to schools and universities for public announcements. The school system, in particular, is subject to public scrutiny as it teaches one of the most vulnerable groups – children and youth. As a result, school security and safety systems must include Access Control systems as part of the overall security system in accordance with the relevant legal framework, including school safety, such as protection from harmful outside influences. Video surveillance, security CCTV cameras, identification badges, and automatic gates are the least a school can do to safeguard its students.

Stabilizers adjust the voltage level and ensure that the correct range of voltage is supplied. Voltage stabilizers are highly effective in controlling voltage fluctuations. There can be voltage issues due to bad wiring, overload, short circuits, or improper grounding. They are an integral part of the solution to protect electronic and electrical devices in commercial buildings. Gila is a proud distributor of Ortea and Himel Voltage Stabilizers.
UPS backup is a big part of schools, universities, and other educational institutions’ responsibility because multiple buildings with complex academic research and analysis equipment are stored behind many doors. Because of that, a solid power foundation is a crucial part of a school or universities’ operation strategy, since it mitigates risk, maintains cyber security and protects power equipment. Continual access to resources, information, and data is integral in allowing educational institutions to have any semblance of normal functioning for both students and staff.
No matter who you are, whether you’re a teacher or a student, power outages can be disruptive and distracting, which will directly impact your students’ performance. As such, a solid power foundation is a vital part of a school or university’s operation strategy. A Schneider UPS will ensure that electricity is continuously supplied to the building if the main power is lost.
A UPS can be used in conjunction with a standby generator to provide longer-term backup power. This is because a UPS is not designed to provide power for a very long period of time. Typically, UPS units provide backup power for only a few minutes, which is usually sufficient for brief power outages. Furthermore, UPS systems can ensure that the standby generators have enough time to switch on and become the primary backup power source when the power goes out.
We are a UPS APC distributor for Schneider Electric VL Galaxy, C-series and Easy UPS. These UPSs are capable of maintaining continuous operation and protect all your systems and data from damage in the event of a power outage. We provide Single Phase UPS & 3 Phase UPS for Data Centers.
For university classrooms and other educational facilities, lighting is essential as it directly impacts the university’s learning environment and energy management. There is an urgent need to upgrade the lighting systems in university classrooms due to the growing concerns about energy efficiency and the increasing demands to enhance the physical environment of the classrooms. As well as saving considerable amounts of money on a university’s budget, LED lighting can also improve the learning environment, improve the concentration levels of students, and ultimately lead to better student performance.
Our school and university LED lighting is made up of light-emitting diodes (LED). LEDs emit visible light when an electrical current passes through a microchip, illuminating the tiny light sources we call LEDs. Due to the higher efficiency of diode light compared to filament light, LEDs consume significantly less energy than incandescent bulbs. Light-emitting diode flood lamps use only 11 to 12 watts while producing a light output comparable to a 50-watt incandescent bulb. Gila Electric is the exclusive agent for OPPLE lighting that ensures the lighting provides Lux Study Lighting, where we can design and develop the lighting and the degree of illumination. Lighting is an integral part of the retail experience, since it is a powerful tool for setting the mood in a retail store and can also be used to draw attention to highlighted products. There are four types of lighting used in a retail environment: Ambient, Task, Accent, and Decorative.
Gila offers a wide range of lighting that suits any setup and aesthetic, like
An integrated building management system (BMS) provides automated control of energy efficiency and occupant comfort by means of a single digital interface.
Electrical and mechanical systems are monitored and controlled by BMSs, such as lighting and HVAC. In addition, it can integrate services like security, access control, elevators, and safety systems.
Depending on specific application and configuration, a BMS may be known as a:
- Building automation systems (BAS)
- Building management and control system (BMCS)
- Building energy management system (BEMS).
A BMS can be purchased as a complete package or as an add-on to an existing system. Our BMS applications are built on open communication protocols and are web-enabled, allowing for the integration of systems from multiple vendors.
Using KNX technology and the KNX standard as a platform to automate and control a building’s operational services provides numerous economic, environmental, and user-friendly advantages.
With KNX technology, we can easily integrate a wide variety of smart appliances, systems and functions into both new and existing buildings, such as heating and security systems, air conditioning, lighting systems, energy metering, blinds, windows, facades, and audio/visual systems.
In addition to Peak Demand Monitoring, Current Detection, Network Monitoring, Load Shedding, Smart Metering, Energy Pulse Counting, Data Logging and Visualization, KNX systems provide efficient energy management. KNX systems are fully customized automation systems that allow users to control and automate all integral building functions – including exterior illumination of buildings, energy management, security monitoring, HVAC, multi-media control, water heating, lighting, thermal envelope, and many other functions.
We design and install all commercial KNX systems to optimize all aspects of building operational efficiency, both inside and outside the building. We also use accurate smart-metering, monitoring, and automation of building functions to reduce carbon emissions, improve grid reliability, reduce water and energy consumption, and extend the life of building equipment.
