Westgate Oxford Shopping Centre
Cygnus, the innovative wireless fire alarm system has recently protected “1,000 construction workers during the development of a £440 million shopping centre, thanks to its renowned features and capabilities.
The Westgate Oxford shopping centre, which was completed in October 2017, comprises of prestigious global brands, restaurants, cafes and a cinema. During the two-year project, Bull Products supplied 400 of its Cygnus alarm systems which were fitted across 125 stores.
One of the requirements for this project was to protect each individual store without the alarm sounding across the whole building – this is a key factor of our Cygnus system as site managers can clearly identify and locate where the alarm is going off through our main control panel, thus providing a reliable, cost-effective and adaptable solution.
There were many contractors, shopfitters and electricians working within the project, all utilising the Cygnus units which were connected to each other throughout the duration of the project.
A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites, the Cygnus radio system, manufactured in-house at Bull Products, has already been used on some prestigious construction projects across the UK including Waterloo Station, Canary Wharf, and Battersea Power Station.
