Cygnus Alarms to be installed On Dumfries And Galloway New Hospital Build



67 Cygnus Call Point Alarms are to be installed on Laing O’Rourke’s £200m Dumfries New Hospital rebuild.

The new 350 bed hospital on the outskirts of Dumfries will replace the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary and is projected to open in 2017/18.

To minimise construction time on-site the layout was designed to facilitate construction on a number of fronts and maximise off-site manufacturing. The project is well underway with the first floor being installed at the moment. 10 Cygnus Call Point units along with 45 radio-link smoke and heat detectors were installed on-site October 2015.

Bull Products will be installing a further 67 Cygnus Call Points and inserting a remote access module into the control panel, this will enable activations to be directly reported to a third party monitoring station and/or site personnel via SMS text messaging. The panel can also be accessed via a PC so users can remotely view the systems status from any location. Parameters can be set to remotely view event logs, activate the PIR sensors and name alarm devices.
