Coomber Fire Systems go overseas!
Among our diverse client base we service, maintain, install, and carry out repairs for the fire alarm systems, emergency lighting and portable fire extinguishers installed within the numerous premises of the Hatton Group Hotels and Inns located in the Cotswolds, Somerset and Jersey.
So it was with great pleasure that we were invited to carry out a site survey at the Chateau La Chaire Hotel on the Channel island of Jersey to overview and provide a quotation to conform to the State of Jersey’s fire authorities requirements to upgrade the existing fire alarm and emergency lighting systems.
We were successful with our proposals and quotation so with an installation plan to provide minimal disruption to guests, staff and to the fabric of the listed building our engineers set about upgrading the existing conventional type fire alarm system to an analogue addressable type which provided upgraded automatic fire detection complete with text location and description on the fire alarm control panel for fire or fault conditions.
The addressable fire alarm system upgrade also provided the scope to install ‘loop’ sounders to the detector bases to increase audibility levels without additional wiring especially in the various luxurious bedrooms.
All new self-contained emergency lighting units installed within internal and external fire escape routes were of the l.e.d type technology which due to their energy efficiency and environmental benefits are safer and can save money in the long term. Appropriate key switches were installed where required to ease testing of the units to comply with emergency lighting regulations.
All fire precautions works were certificated and signed off to the satisfaction of the fire officer.
Our engineers enjoyed a great working environment, complimentary 4-star accommodation, food and beverages! A big thank you to the hotel manager Mark and his staff. All in all a job well done for the client and Coomber Fire Systems
