Cygnus Wireless Fire Alarm System Protects Embassy Gardens
A famous project in London that’s currently under construction required the very best temporary wireless alarm system; that’s why the Cygnus System was specified and installed.
Embassy Gardens is London’s new suave district on the waterside, at the heart of the Nine Elms Regeneration Area which incorporates luxury residencies and prestigious commercial departments.
Phase 2 includes Legacy Buildings 1, 2 and 3 and the unique Sky Pool which spans between 2 buildings. The Sky Pool is an ambitious creation which has a glass structure so as to see the city below and all around.
There are over 50 Cygnus units already installed on this site with more to come as phase 2 of the project progresses. The Cygnus control panel is installed in the main site office and is wirelessly connected to all 50 Cygnus units situated strategically around the sites, mainly in prominent places such as on or near fire points, and on stairwells and main escape routes.
The communication between the alarms is impeccable due to the meshing protocol which enables access from both point-to-point and multipoint. The addressing system minimises the probability of clashes within the zone ensuring maximum performance. For this reason, correct unit addressing is important and needs to be implemented prior to the installation.
Cygnus has been specifically created for use in environments surrounded by dense concrete and steel framed buildings and areas where there are many other radio frequencies and likely interruptions. The Cygnus System is an M&E contractors dream, with pre-configured state the installation is very quick and easy.
