Cygnus Alarms Selected for One Blackfriars Project
This ‘architectural masterpiece’, One Blackfriars, is another gem that can be added to the Cygnus portfolio of jobs. Wingate Electrical who are the electrical contractors for the main contractor Brookfield Multiplex, have selected the Cygnus Wireless Fire Alarm System to aid with fire and first aid protection throughout the site.
Incorporated within the temporary alarm system installed on the project, are over 60 Cygnus Fire and First Aid combined alarms and over 30 Cygnus heat detectors, some of which have built in PIR detectors. These units are connected to a main control panel which is located in the site office. The control panel has an additional functionality compared to the standard control panel; using a GSM/GPRS modem, activations can be directly reported to a third party monitoring station and/or site personnel via SMS text messaging. The panel can also be accessed from a PC so users can remotely view the system’s status from any location. The user can also set parameters remotely, view event logs, activate the PIR sensors and name alarm devices.
The project comprises of 3 buildings set in approximately 0.67 hectares of land, incorporating a central landscaped plaza with water feature, the main tower, a high-class boutique hotel and a luxury leisure and retail building. Designed by the award winning Simpson Haugh & Partners Architects, One Blackfriars will add a shimmering new dimension to the London skyline, providing luxury living with stunning views over London and the River Thames.
