    A few things required...

    My school is looking to implement an outdoor speaker system around the outer fringes of the school fence, and also wants a rainproof TV screen (encased in an enclosure) that a teacher can hook up their iPad/laptop to.

    We have what's called a nature trail for the students; it's a glorified garden path for them to walk along and it's anticipated that some of the speakers will be dotted along this pathway.

    Can anyone recommend me a few companies/suppliers that specialise in the above?

    Furthermore, our school alarm bell (the one that rings out when a lesson has started/ended, when it's lunchtime etc) no longer works and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could look for a company that does school alarm bells? (Preferably tried and tested and comes highly recommended)

    Thanks!

    Where abouts in the UK are you could help

    As for sessional bells they are simple bell / sounder systems and a simple 7 day programmer, I would suggest you speak to your local sparky to get that sorted its probably the programmer that has died or the contactor.

    The school is based north west of Birmingham. I did look at the bell system and the company that did the initial set up folded some years ago so I'm at a loss of where to begin my search.

    Have you checked into places that wire up local bars and or marine audio/electrical suppliers they often deal with outdoor waterproof speaker systems.

    Danfoss timer is what a lot of schools use for their class change bells.

    AS for outdoor tv's the local AV/Network company I use have IP rated enclosures for TV's I believe Advantage Technologies

    Local Electricans IE any electrican will be able to do a school bell system, as Ben has said further down Danfoss 7 day programmers are common but all you need is a simple 7 day programmer and some 240V bells and wired correctly job done
