North West Cambridge Development Project Takes On Cygnus Alarms

More than 50 Cygnus alarm units have been installed on Phase 1 (Lot 8) at the North West Cambridge Development; through companies such as RG Carter Drayton Ltd and BAM Construct UK.

The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system 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.

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm System is fully compliant with all relevant legislation for use on construction sites and meets requirements for JCOP Edition 9 2015.
