Honeywell supplies fire and voice alarm systems for airport terminal

December 2001 Fire & Safety

BAA London Gatwick Airport is to enhance the safety of passengers and workers with new Honeywell fire and PAVA (public address voice alarm) systems in the North Terminal under a œ5,7m contract with Honeywell.

Honeywell will provide system design, hardware and software, engineering, installation and project management of a Honeywell Excel LifeSafety Manager system, with completion due in September 2002.

The new system will be integrated with a similar system already installed by Honeywell in the airport's South Terminal, thereby meeting the users' needs for a common operator interface and shared access from control rooms in either terminal.

Honeywell has already provided building management systems for both terminals and provides comprehensive preventive and breakdown maintenance services for the BMS and fire systems, using its team of resident engineers based at BAA Gatwick Airport.

LifeSafety Manager is a high performance fire management system that provides primary monitoring and full control of a building's smoke and fire detection systems, sprinkler systems and emergency communications systems. In addition, its combination of event information, response prompting and tracking capabilities makes it a quality incident management and regulatory compliance tool, as required by local codes of practice.
