Bull Products has enhanced its Cygnus wireless alarm range, with a new feature designed specifically for construction sites to give warning of danger and prevent access into exclusion zones.
The new Exclusion Zone Alarm System is designed for when an area becomes too dangerous for workers or pedestrians to pass. Such instances include when a plant is being operated, crane and lifting operations are in place, or where dangerous out-of-bound locations exist.
The alarm system units are situated around the exclusion area; when activated, the alarm sounds continuously until the area is no longer considered dangerous.
As a major innovation in wireless emergency fire and first aid alarms for construction sites, the Cygnus radio fire alarm system has been designed for specific use on construction sites, in which changing site conditions and environments require a far superior performance from the radio than those found in standard wireless fire alarm systems.
The Exclusion Zone Alarm System interfaces directly to the Cygnus Alarm System and can be monitored and/or activated through the control panel, where a full history log can be accessed.
It can also be used together with beam detectors, which trigger an alert when the beam is broken by a trespasser.
Bradley Markham, director at Bull Products, commented: “Establishing exclusion zones on a construction site is key to protecting workers as their lives are still at risk during operation.
“Our Exclusion Zone Alarm System is clearly visible and will ensure that workers and pedestrians are alert of those high-risk areas, so they can avoid entering them in the first place.
“The system allows us to go that extra mile to provide a safer working environment and ensure health and safety is a top priority.”
