University Accommodation Protected with Cygnus

The Cygnus wireless alarm system has been installed on St Stephens Towers – a £45m revamp which will provide multi-storey accommodation for more than 700 students.

Cygnus alarm devices have been installed to protect workers and p during work on the site, which when complete, will provide purpose-built apartments with social spaces featuring a cinema, gymnasium, study rooms, and a series of lounge spaces for the students at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the Norwich University of Arts. The Cygnus System that has been installed on site includes a Control Panel, numerous Fire Call Point Alarms, and combined Fire Call Point and First Aid Alarm units.

A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites, the Cygnus radio fire alarm system has been designed for specific use on construction sites where changing site conditions and environments demand a far higher performance from the radio than those found in standard wireless fire alarm systems. It is ideal for complex projects that require long distance connections and in areas of dense concrete or steel frames.

We’re pleased to be working on this project and supplying a range of products to ensure maximum site safety. As the project progresses, the Cygnus system can be moved around to the different storeys, thus providing a flexible, cost-effective, and reliable solution, while an AED ensures workers are protected if emergency responders are unable to get to the site in time.
