Fire Safety and Security Award for Chubb

Company News, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA
Chubb Fire & Security has won the Fire Safety & Security award at the Electrical Review Excellence Awards 2018 for its design and installation of an innovative wireless fire detection system at the prestigious Queen’s Hotel in Penzance. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

 

The Awards recognise projects that embrace the latest in electrical engineering, display forward-thinking design and implementation, and champion the highest environmental, safety and energy efficiency standards. The judges were looking for evidence of how the key objectives were fulfilled, as well as examples of innovation, smart thinking, clever design, effective technical solutions and collaborative problem solving.

 

The Queen’s Hotel turned to Chubb after a series of local fires led them to review their fire safety requirements across the whole estate. Chubb installed more than 400 wireless detectors all networked to the fire detection panel in the hotels’ main reception. It is a fully-zoned, addressable system that gives hotel management immediate visibility on where an alarm has been generated. A wireless system was chosen to minimise the cabling work that would have meant the temporary closure of the hotel. Installation was phased so at no stage was the hotel without fire protection.

 

Graham Brimson, South West Regional Director for Chubb, says the award is recognition of the dedication and hard work of the Chubb team: “Our team of engineers and installers did a great job to complete the installation at the hotel within two weeks with a minimum of disruption to guests and staff. The feedback from the hotel was extremely complimentary, and we are extremely pleased to have received this additional accolade for the project.”
