Queen Anne Court – University of Greenwich

In 1998, as part of a site wide installation, Crays Fire originally installed an Electro Detectors’ radio-based Fire Alarm and Detection System.

In 2020, due to the existing system becoming obsolete, Crays Fire were commissioned to supply, install and commission a replacement system in Queen Anne Court.

Due to the ornate nature of the building’s architecture, we selected a new EMS radio-based wireless fire alarm system, which removed the need for the concealing of any cables, usually associated with hard-wired systems.

As the building has a listed status, the design was developed with close coordination with the project consultant and Historic England.

The new system utilises two wirelessly networked, multi-looped, Kentec Taktis fire alarm control panels, boasting an impressive 42 x RCC units and over 700 wireless devices protecting the building and its occupants.
