Leading University Halls update fire protection

When students venture off to University it can be a daunting time for their loved ones as they leave home, but thanks to FIRE FM they can now sleep a little better in the knowledge that their student are protected by the state of the art GENT system recently installed.

The leading London University took the onerous decision to replace their student halls of residence existing Cerberus system.  After a consultation with FIRE FM it was agreed to roll out a whole new system including an analogue addressable GENT system comprising if a Vigilon Control panel and S Quad devices throughout.

The S Quad system provides a combined Multi-sensor, Speech, Sounder and visual alarm in one intelligent, discreet device providing a safe and cost effective solution for most applications.

The S-Quad sensors inherit all the advantages of Vigilon’s powered loop combined with extra features, making Vigilon and S-Quad an industry leading combination for ­re detection and alarm signalling.

As you can imagine replacing a full system in a residential facility can provide challenges, but Fire FM are experienced in these kinds of installations and were able to complete the installation with high success and rolled out with minimum disruption.

Further to this the University has also invested in replacing their fire detection systems at a number of building on the main campus, again they have opted for Gent technology and this is part of a University wide strategy to invest in the University buildings and install in the main Gent systems.
