Associated British Ports

This particular project was the conversion of an old Fyffes banana cold store, into a modern facility in a very short time scale. One of the main problems was the protection of a large void above the arrivals / departure lounge, which suffered from constant ingress of pigeons.

Wessex Fire & Security came up with an innovative solution using Linear heat sensing cable to provide protection to the void areas, ensuring that no false alarms would be caused by the pigeons which may otherwise have occurred with the conventional use of Optical Beam Detection.

In addition the terminal lounge was fitted out with the latest Voice enhancer sounder / strobes to alert members of the public to a fire condition without causing undue panic, and the strobes ensured compliance with Disability Discrimination Act requirements.

Wessex Fire and Security also fitted a purpose manufactured security control panel to enable doors to be released or locked in accordance with the clients requirements.

“Wessex provided an excellent solution to our Fire & Security requirements. We found their engineers first class. We have worked with Wessex on a number of projects and find them to be a very professional company.”
