Keep safe

Bull Products’ Cygnus wireless fire alarm system has been selected for use during the re-development of one of London’s major landmarks, Battersea Power Station. The Grade II listed building designed in the 1930s by Sir Giles Gilbert-Scott was decommissioned in 1983 and is now subject to an £8 billion re-development within 42 acres of former industrial land.

Phase 2 of the development involves the iconic power station building itself, where no less than 150 Cygnus wireless alarm systems are installed to ensure a safe environment for construction workers on site. With the project at groundwork stage and nearly all of the internals demolished, the Cygnus wireless alarm system is there to protect workers in the old wash towers, on ground levels and around all the pedestrian walkways.

Intended purely for use on construction sites, the CE marked Cygnus system has been specifically designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in operation, and so particular attention has been given to achieving an impressive connection range. Where there are multiple sites within range of each other, the Cygnus system has been designed to operate on different site addresses in order to keep each system separate and free from interference.
