Westgate Shopping Centre Utilising Cygnus

The Westgate Oxford Alliance is a joint venture between Land Securities and The Crown Estate, created to deliver together the most unique opportunity in the UK, a new destination in Oxford City Centre. As part of the project, the existing Westgate Shopping Centre in Greyfriars has been partly demolished and the remainder has been refurbished. During this phase the existing addressable fire alarm system has been removed and a Cygnus System has been configured and installed in its place. This consists of 2no. control panels, CYG2 wireless alarm units and CYG3L heat detectors in the units being refurbished. The Cygnus alarm system is also monitoring the mall aspirating system, the shop fire alarm systems and all the building sprinklers.

An Ultima2 remote monitoring unit has been fitted in the control panel which is allowing the Bull Products technical support team to keep a regular check on the systems performance and provides text alert of activations to both centre security team and site staff.

The Cygnus software which allows for advanced cause and effect options means that it was the only temporary fire alarm system available on the market suitable for such a complex project.

Bull Products are very proud to be continuing the long standing working partnership with Laing O Rourke in delivering first class fire safety solutions.
