Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has secured
another major European contract with the Leiden University in Holland.
Project managers of the university project were impressed with Bull after visiting
Shell offices in Holland where the company’s alarm system was installed earlier this
year. Bull has now been contracted to supply its renowned Cygnus alarm systems to
protect one of the buildings at the university which is home to almost 35,000 staff
The Student Centre, which is opposite the Leiden University, Campus The Hague, will
provide sports, recreational and support services for students once complete.
The upper two floors of the building are currently in use by other tenants, therefore
the building has to remain safe at all times during the renovation. In addition, a tram line runs through the ground floor making the alarm system critical to protect the
site during the refurbishment and ensure that the tram network is not disrupted in
the event of a fire.
Sixteen alarm units have been installed on site including the Cygnus Heat Detector
and Responder Stations which offer a complete first aid centre for when an
emergency can’t be reported immediately and helps to maintain adequate first aid
equipment on site ensuring health and safety is not compromised.
Bradley Markham, Director at Bull Products, says: “We are delighted to be working
with the University of Leiden to protect the new Student Centre site – a project
which continues to build our reputation in Europe.”
Jeroen van der Lelie, Project Manager at the Leiden University, added: “After we saw
the Cygnus alarm system at the Shell offices in the Netherlands, we had no doubt
that it would be ideal to protect the building which will house the new Student
Centre during the renovation.”
