Bull Products protects riverside landmark 80 Strand

Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has installed its Cygnus 1 Wireless Alarm System at 80 Strand in London.

The former Shell-Mex building is currently undergoing a refurbishment project to provide 156,000 sq ft of flexible floorspace in this beautifully transformed building. 80 Strand will feature stunning art deco features complemented by light filled contemporary spaces with riverside views, in the heart of a world class cultural destination.

The Cygnus Alarm units have been installed to protect the building during the refurbishment project. Due to the nature of the project including the careful restoration of original art deco features, round the clock protection was required to ensure comprehensive safety of the site and its workers.

Working in partnership with Trident Electrical, Bull Products provided Cygnus fire alarms, extinguishers and trolleys across different levels of the 12-storey building. The Cygnus Alarm System was also required to interface with the permanent alarm system on site, ensuring that site workers were alerted to any risk of fire, 24 hours a day.

Matthew Trigwell, Sales Director at Bull Products says: “We’re thrilled to be working on this landmark restoration project in such an iconic location. Due to the heritage of the building, the project comes with its own challenges including the very important job of protecting the building’s original features. The installation of our Cygnus Alarm System has provided comprehensive security and peace of mind for the on-site team and those preserving this beautiful building.”

Grant Bedford, Director at Trident Electrical adds: “We have worked with Bull Products on a number of restoration projects and knew the Cygnus Alarm System would provide the reassurance we required on site. The team is highly experienced and familiar with the logistical and technical challenges that come with working on high profile projects such as this one in a landmark location.”
