Etisalat looks to Bosch for fire safety
UAE: Etisalat has opted for a new fire safety system from Bosch Security in its Abu Dhabi headquarters. Geco installed the system, using the building’s existing wiring. Thanks to open standards, the existing loudspeakers were also able to be integrated into the new system.
The 25-storey office building and nine-floor parking garage have been equipped with five modular fire panels from the 5000 Series, as well as 800 smoke and heat detectors. Thirty duct smoke detectors were also installed in air ducts throughout the office tower, and manual call points were installed at each of the 100 exits. The solution’s modular construction will allow additional buildings and alarms to be integrated into the main system.
The centralised building integration system (BIS) is used to coordinate, operate, and monitor all of the alarm system components. In addition, the integrated Bosch fire telephone and voice evacuation system combines alarm information with floor plans and emergency evacuation routes.
