Fire alarm system chosen for London development

A fire alarm system from power management company Eaton has been chosen for a new facility in London, says the company.

According to Eaton, ABCA Systems chose to install 14 of their CF3000 systems – which it describes as a high specification intelligent addressable control panel – throughout the new facilities, Spring Mews in Vauxhall.

The facility is described as multiple-use premises, providing accommodation to more than 400 students, with leisure and academic facilities on site, such as a cinema, gym and swimming pool, laundry facilities, study/games areas and secure bicycle storage. The development also includes a contemporary 93-bed suite hotel and various retail spaces.

Eaton says their addressable control panels pinpoint the particular alarm that has been activated, therefore speeding up the process of detecting the source of a suspected fire.

The company adds that the CF3000 panels use soft addressing to decrease installation time as well as the potential for error associated with manual addressing, both of which limit costs for the business owner. It can operate as a standalone panel or as part of a networked system, and also feature powerful programming options that allow configurable control over whether messages from specific panels are transmitted around the network or remain local, to avoid unnecessary disruption to other building occupants, they say.
