Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, is protecting the tallest tower in the heart of London with over 150 of its Cygnus alarm units.
22 Bishopsgate is a 62-storey skyscraper that has now reached its highest point. Once complete, it will house 12,000 workers and include a range of restaurants and shops.
Bull has installed its Fire Call Point and First Aid Alarm and the Cygnus Detector Interface Unit. The Fire Call Point and First Aid Alarm provides a cost-effective and reliable solution for construction sites. By having a first aid alarm on site, workers can ensure first aiders are notified immediately of any incident and its location, thus providing maximum protection in an emergency.
Bradley Markham, director Bradley Markham, says: “This large-scale project required an alarm system that could work effectively across several floors to provide maximum safety and protection to workers. Our wireless fire alarm system is the ideal solution as it can connect up to 480 individual units in 15 different zones.”
For heightened out of hours protection, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System combined with 3G Auto Dialler has also been installed.
The Auto Dialler ensures that the site manager is notified if an activation or intrusion has occurred onsite. When the system is triggered, the recipients will get a notification to state when the system was activated, what type of activation has triggered the system, and if it initiated from a unit or the control panel.
