Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has protected some of the largest construction projects across the UK including Big Ben, Elephant Park, and Embassy Gardens, thanks to its Cygnus Wireless Alarm System.

A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System has raised the bar in the industry, and is the most successful and adaptable temporary alarm system for use in the construction industry.

Bull Products shares the top five facts of its wireless alarm system, and why businesses need to invest in the system to ensure a safe site from start to finish:

1) Easy installation

Did you know the Cygnus alarm system can be installed in a matter of minutes? The size and complexity of the project will impact the install time; however, pre-configured alarms make installation quicker and easier. When alarms are delivered pre-configured to the customer’s request, they have clearly marked labels on each device with the zone and unit numbers.

There’s minimal interference to ongoing construction and no complicated cabling with a wireless alarm. Drilling holes, laying wires, and protecting the cable network from accidental breakages or rodent damage are a thing of the past.

 2) Protect the whole site

The alarms can operate in a maximum of 15 zones with up to 32 devices per zone. It’s capable of controlling all zones from a control panel operating on the same frequency but distinguished by different zone addresses. In the case of a real alarm, the message is communicated to every device within the site.

As a site grows with new floors or areas of construction, the easy-to-fit wireless alarm system can grow with it, and as phases of the build are completed, alarms and detectors can easily be moved or removed with minimal damage.

3) Wide connection

Cygnus has been specially designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings, and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use. Therefore, particular attention has been given to achieving an extremely long-range connection.

Distances in excess of 1.5km have been recorded in an open-air environment. Whilst this range is not guaranteed on site due to limiting obstacles, Cygnus covers impressive distances due to a networking meshing system that allows devices to communicate through one another and not just directly to the panel

4) Latest technology

Delivering an impressive signal-range, the Cygnus system conforms to EN300 220 Category 1 requirements. Mesh protocol ensures seamless point-to-point and multipoint communication. The specialist software ensures performance of the system can be optimised with a central control panel. Each alarm unit reports back to the control panel on device status and provides condition updates including signal faults and battery usage

5) Bespoke to your requirements

No matter what the site requirements are, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System provides an innovative and reliable solution to protect customers and workers. So, whether a site needs an intruder alarm, a first aid alert facility or interface units, the Cygnus alarm system will ensure construction companies have everything they need to protect workers and their site, when and where it matters the most.
