System upgrade to reduce the risk of fire

Project manager: Neil Fitzwalter
Customer: Blue Chip Data Systems Ltd
June  2015

Blue Chip Data Systems Ltd approached Custom Fire & Security requesting an upgrade on their existing fire system at the head quarters in Dorset.

Our brief was to provide an all round upgrade with focus on specific areas of the building. High sensitivity smoke detectors were needed for the server room for both detection within the room and also to prevent smoke ingress from neighbouring industrial processes.

“We carried out the system upgrade with minimal disruption to the clients 24 hour working day…”

Our solution to the clients brief was replace all old and inadequate fire alarm system components with a new, full addressable, analogue Honeywell SenTri 2 loop system and to install aspiration smoke detection to the air handling ductwork.

The entire system upgrade and new components were installed at the clients head quarters with minimal disruption to their 24 hour working day. The new aspiration smoke detection is used to monitor the air intake grilles, this will prevent external smoke contaminates created by neighbouring industrial process from entering the building.

Equipment used for this project

Honeywell SenTri 2 fire alarms, Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology

To ensure the upgraded fire system met the clients requirements we installed the following systems and components; Honeywell SenTri 2 fire alarms, Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology (FAAST), Kentec 3 zone gas suppression control panels and Fike FM200 gas suppression cylinders.
