The Cygnus team, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has installed its Cygnus Wireless Alarm System at the Commonwealth Games as part of a comprehensive on-site fire safety strategy.

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm System was installed at various hospitality marquees, located in the centre of Birmingham. Given the amount of people in attendance at the Games, along with the complexity of the structure, great care was taken to ensure the building remained safe and secure during the games. The Cygnus Wireless Alarm system was selected on account of its reputation as the most adaptable and reliable temporary mesh fire alarm system for use in the construction industry. 

Working in conjunction with Kylefire, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm system’s control panels and call points were strategically placed for maximum coverage. Bull Products’ solutions also included a rapid deployment evacuation system to minimise health and safety risks for those in attendance at the Games.  

The Cygnus system can link up to 480 individual devices in 15 different zones, ideal for large scale events which require a fire protection system. The tactical zoning method ensures optimal connectivity while minimising the probability of clashes, with each device acting as a booster device. Working as a self-contained unit, Cygnus wireless alarms are engineered for easy installation and uninstallation, offering convenient flexibility as the site progresses from the earliest stages of design and procurement, right through to project completion.

Kyle Gibson at Kylefire commented: “Given the scope of the project, it was important for us to choose a reliable system that offered more functionality to meet the requirements of the venue. We chose the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System not only for its quality but also the advanced functions that our system was unable to provide. It is also an incredibly easy system to install that provides peace of mind for both the contractor and client.”
