Cygnus alarm system protects Canary Wharf’s latest residential space

We’re delighted that our Cygnus Wireless Alarm System has been installed during the construction of Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf.

Designed by Allies and Morrison Architects, the Wood Wharf development will extend the existing Canary Wharf Estate, which represents one of central London’s largest privately owned development sites.

This contemporary development will provide over 3,300 new homes, nearly 2 million sq ft of high quality commercial office space, and 490,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants and community spaces.

We have  been brought on board by Canary Wharf Contractors to supply and install Cygnus fire alarms on the Wood Wharf project up until completion in 2023.

As well as installing Cygnus Fire Call Point alarms and Cygnus smoke and heat detectors, Cygnus Interface Alarm Units have been installed in the basements to monitor wet riser pumps.

Wet risers pumps, if not monitored, could cause unnecessary flooding and damage; therefore an alarm system that warns authorities of wet riser activation is essential. In the event of the pumps being activated, the Cygnus alarms are triggered and security will be notified immediately.

Bradley Markham, Director at Bull Products, says: “Our continued involvement during the construction of Wood Wharf proves the value of the Cygnus alarm system. The strong wireless mesh means that the site has a dependable alarm system that  is suitable for temporary construction environments where a high-quality fire safety system is required.”
