Bull protects one of Europe’s tallest skylines

Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has secured a major contract to protect one of Europe’s tallest residential buildings – South Quay Plaza in Canary Wharf. 

At 68 storeys, South Quay Plaza is set within 2.6 acres and will comprise of over 900 homes, ground floor retail across two landmark buildings, a dockside promenade, and a park.

Bull has been contracted to supply more than 80 of its iconic Cygnus alarm systems across all floors of the apartment block, which will be in place until project completion in 2020. 

The Cygnus radio system, manufactured by Bull Products, is a major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites. 

It has been designed for specific use on construction sites where changing site conditions and environments demand a far higher performance from the radio than that found in standard industry wireless linked fire systems. 

Ross Markham, managing director at Bull Products, says: “We’re proud to be installing our alarm systems on what is set to be one of the largest skylines in Europe – it truly showcases the leaps and bounds of the Cygnus system.

“Our alarm units are becoming widely used in some of the largest construction projects and some of the most famous buildings in London and we believe this is down to the system’s innovation, flexibility, and reliability.
