Working on behalf of Alphatrack systems, we have recently completed a large 4 loop fire alarm installation for the head offices of The Body Shop. As this is a working office, a simple replacement was not an option and as such, we had to work to ensure that throughout the project, coverage was provided throughout the building at all times. This was done by running the old and new systems side by side, linked to ensure that all ancillary systems would work no matter where the alarm originated from. The new system comprised of a 4 loop Advanced MXpro5 panel, Hochiki ESP detection and Hochiki Firewave wireless detection. We also installed Detector Testers Scorpion’s within the lift shafts making device testing easier, safer and reducing ongoing cost to the client substantially over the next 10 years. The new system has full control over the building access control, BMS, passenger lifts and auto dialler.
