Cygnus Alarms on Curtis Green Project
Cygnus Wireless Alarm System installed on BAM’s Curtis Green Building project on Victoria Embankment.
Bull Products have installed 11 Cygnus Alarm units and a Cygnus Control Panel onto the site at Curtis Green. The alarm units are fixed onto customised fire point stands that are situated throught the site.
The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system is a major innovation for construction sites and has been designed and developed in conjunction with major construction companies to incorporate all the features required for larger construction projects. The Cygnus system is able to link no less than 480 units in 15 different zones. Individual units may be either a fire alarm call point, first aid alert point, smoke detector, heat detector or a combined call point and first aid alert alarm.
This £58m project is due for completion in October 2016. See the link below for more information about BAM’s challenge to transform an inadequate 1930s building into a modern facility designed for the Metropolitan Police HQ.
