Firelec have successfully completed the installation of the fire alarm, Intruder
Alarm and CCTV systems at the newly built Magenta Self Storage building in Acton, London.
We installed a fully addressable 8 loop Advanced MxPro 5 fire alarm system to provide full coverage
throughout the building including beam detection on the top floor. The fire alarm is interfaced with the
emergency voice communication system, the door access control, the sliding doors, the passenger lifts
and the system is also monitored remotely via a dualcom device providing automatic brigade response.
A grade 2 monitored intruder alarm system was installed covering the whole building. As the building
can be accessed 24/7 the intruder alarm is linked to the access control so a customer can enter the
building whilst disarming a certain area where the customer has to go and automatically re-arm when
leaving giving flexible and maximum security. All fire doors are monitored, if any member of the public
try to exit through the fire exit doors this will trigger the intruder alarm. Dualcom monitoring was
installed with police response.
The CCTV we installed on this project was a Uniview IP CCTV system. A total of 23 cameras were
installed covering all general internal areas and all external perimeters. Starlight cameras were installed
externally giving maximum quality in low level light conditions. Camera locations and coverage were so
crucial for our client so they can provide the best level of security for their customers and possessions.
The main NVR sever was installed in the comms cabinet and connected to their network so they can
remotely monitor the CCTV.
Following the success of this project Firelec have since been awarded the service contract for the new
equipment and continue to provide ongoing maintenance and support for the end user.
