New website launched by Bull Products for Cygnus wireless fire alarm system

Bull Products has just launched a brand new website at www.cygnusalarms.com devoted to its innovative Cygnus wireless fire alarm system.

Developed in conjunction with major construction companies, the Cygnus system is designed specifically for use on construction sites where the environment demands far higher radio performance than standard systems. The Cygnus system is able to link no less than 480 alarm devices in 15 zones.

The new website has been created to help construction companies specify the exact Cygnus system they would like for a particular project. As well as giving an explanation of the system and its capabilities, there’s a full listing of all the control panels and individual alarm units available.

There are also helpful videos to explain the system and its maintenance, and a gallery showing recent installations for end user customers including BSkyB, Crossrail and Scotland Yard together with a number of customer testimonials on projects as well as full Case Studies.

Included on the site is a full technical section and servicing advice plus details of the standards relating to the use of fire alarm systems on different types of construction sites and conformity to regulations.

The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system is backed by an eight-strong customer support team who are there to help customers with their specific requirements, installation and servicing needs.

Five control panels, 31 alarm units

In the Cygnus family there are a choice of five control panels and 31 alarm units and accessories, all illustrated with their details on the website. A CYG6 control panel has recently been introduced to cater for smaller construction sites, handling 32 alarm devices in a single zone. There’s also a control panel available with a GSM modem allowing reporting via SMS text messaging.

Another innovation is a PIR option available on all alarm modules to detect intruders and alert off-site personnel for added safety protection.

The Cygnus fire alarm system has an impressive capability of linking up to 480 units across a construction site. Individual units may be either a fire alarm Call Point, First Aid alert point, smoke detector, heat detector or a combined Call Point/First Aid alert alarm. Further capabilities include out-of-hours notifications via an auto-dialling panel to key-holders.

Cygnus has been specifically designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings, and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use. Particular attention has been given to achieving an extremely long range connection. Operational distances in excess of 1.5 km have been recorded in an open air environment.

Cygnus covers impressive distances due to a meshing system which allows devices to communicate through one another and not directly to the panel.

Bull Products offers a full one-year guarantee on all Cygnus devices and provides high levels of technical, on-site and after-sales service support in addition to its standard maintenance contracts.

Counter-terrorism awareness operation launched in London

A major initiative designed to increase awareness of security and counter-terrorism policing in London has been launched today by the Metropolitan Police Service.

The initiative – known as Operation Penna – is the second operation of its kind run by the Met. It involves co-ordinated activity focused on reminding members of the public of the vital role they can play in helping to protect the capital.

Activity will be taking place across all 32 London Boroughs between 13-24 January 2014, with tactics including high visibility patrols around crowded places such as shopping centres and transport hubs.

Officers will be providing detailed, in-depth information and briefings to businesses explaining the ongoing threat from terrorism and what they can do to protect themselves from it.

Briefings will also be held for officers and staff on every Borough to highlight the key part they play in counter-terrorism policing by providing a link between national expertise and mainstream neighbourhood policing.

Everyone has a role to play

Commander Richard Morris from Specialist Operations said: “Everyone has a role to play in keeping London safe from terrorism. This operation sees specialist officers working closely with neighbourhood officers and communities raising awareness of security in London.”

Morris added: “We want to build on our engagement with communities and businesses in a variety of ways to counter the threat from terrorism. Our aim is to raise awareness and improve protection from a terrorist attack and other crimes.”

In conclusion, Morris commented: “The threat to London from terrorism remains real and serious so we encourage the public to remain vigilant and alert and to report anything suspicious to police.”

The operation is being co-ordinated by Specialist Operations in partnership with local officers across the Met.

Anyone who has any information about unusual activity or behaviour should contact the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
