Fire-resistant cabling ensures fire alarm performance

Commercial property company, Bruntwood has chosen AEI Cables’ enhanced Firetec cabling to ensure the performance of the fire alarms systems at the 15-storey Plaza offices refurbishment in Liverpool.

The fire alarm system needed to be up-graded on a floor-by-floor basis so that existing alarms remained in operation while the new one was installed. The requirements were further complicated by the fact that, as a phased evacuation system, all new works had to use voice evacuation to comply with current building regulations.

A cost-effective solution, using a series of AVAC voice alarm systems, was designed using one on each floor, as part of a networked fire alarm system connected by AEI Cables’ Enhanced Firetec cabling for higher end applications.

This enabled standard sounder tones to be played through the voice alarm speakers until the whole building was converted to voice evacuation, offering a smoother change to voice alarm messages.

Using Enhanced Firetec cabling with AVAC allowed the cabling to be used in a multi-functional format across the system, ensuring quality and safety. Distribution of the cabling was managed by Edmundson Electrical in Wigan.
