Bull protects Portsmouth students with life-saving fire protection equipment

  • 31 Jul 2018

Bull Products is protecting students in a new accommodation building in Portsmouth with the installation of its life-saving fire protection equipment.

The new sixteen-storey building, named Chaucer House, will open to Portsmouth students this September 2018, having been developed by construction specialist, RG Group. Bull Products worked closely with RG Group to ensure that the building provided vital safety measures to protect the building.

Bull has already been protecting Chaucer House for the last two years with its Cygnus Fire Call Points and First Aid Alarms, Cygnus Heat Detectors and Fire, Fire Aid and Spill Responder Stations. As a result of the performance of the Cygnus Alarm System, RG Group was keen to work with Bull Products again.

The team has been working with construction specialist, RG Group, to ensure workers’ safety remained a top priority during the development of Chaucer House which will comprise of over 800 bedrooms.

Simon Felstead, Senior Project Manager at RG Group, comments: “We are really pleased with how the Cygnus Alarm System has performed since the project began. The system is adaptable and meets the needs of the project and the responder stations ensure workers have all the right safety equipment to hand in an emergency.”

Ross Markham, managing director at Bull Products, says: “It has been great to be a part of the Chaucer House project and protecting the site over the last two years. The site has gone through several construction phases but due to the flexibility of the Cygnus Alarm System, the safety on site has not been compromised.

“Over the last year, the Cygnus Alarm System has been installed on several student accommodation developments and we’re looking forward to expanding into this sector further.”
