A host of industry-leading fire protection solutions including Advanced fire panels have been installed to protect approximately 140,000 sq ft of Grade A office space at Westferry House, Canary Wharf.
As a cornerstone office building situated at the western gateway to Europe’s largest and most successful business district, Westferry House covers 11 storeys and features its own retail promenade on the ground floor. At the core of the active fire protection for the building are six Advanced MxPro 5 fire alarm control panels installed alongside Apollo Soteria multi-sensors.
Long-time Advanced partner, Pacific Security Systems Ltd, was responsible for all aspects of the installation. The Kent-based fire and security specialists also installed Advanced’s remote-control terminal and repeater panel, TouchControl, to provide a discreet and aesthetically pleasing means of viewing the fire system in the building’s recently refurbished reception area.
Advanced’s AdSpecials team was commissioned design and manufacture a custom-built annunciator panel to control the pressurisation and extraction fans and dampers on all floors of the building. The annunciator integrates with the building’s VA/PA system to provide manual control of messages on all floors. The AdSpecials team works with customers requiring bespoke fire panels to design and manufacture unique fire system solutions, whatever the installation challenge.
