AsiaWorld-Expo

February 2007 Fire & Safety

Bosch Security Systems has supplied fire and emergency voice alarm systems to Hong Kong′s new AsiaWorld-Expo exhibition and events centre.

Completed in December 2005, AsiaWorld-Expo adjoins Hong Kong's Chep Lap Kok International Airport built on a man-made island 25 kilometres from the city. With more than 70 000 square metres of rentable exhibition, conference and entertainment space, the centre is Hong Kong's largest event facility.

Bosch has provided AsiaWorld-Expo with extensive equipment and accessories from its Universal Intrusion and Fire Alarm Panel 2000 Series together with the fire monitoring system and Praesideo, a fully digital public address and emergency sound system. The systems are integrated with each other and with external control and emergency monitoring systems. The total project is the largest of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region for Bosch Security Systems.

The fire alarm and detection system monitors 10 exhibition halls, eight conference rooms, foyers, lobbies, restaurants, shops, concourses and offices on three levels. The fire system interfaces with Bosch's Praesideo PA system that provides general and emergency announcements. Both systems comply with the BS5839 standard for fire detection and alarm systems.

AsiaWorld-Expo is the only exhibition and events centre fully integrated with one of the world's busiest international airports and well supported by an in-venue mass transit railway station. In addition to the airport, opened in June 1998, and AsiaWorld-Expo, the artificial island includes hotels, a metro railway system, ferry terminals, a 9-hole golf course, retail and entertainment centre and office complexes.
