The newly constructed Tropical House at Marwell Zoological Park is home to a diverse and wide range of wildlife and exotic plants.
The challenge of protecting such rare and valuable species from the threat of fire fell to Premier Fire Security who were commissioned by Accolade Building Services Ltd, to supply and install a sophisticated VESDA Air Sampling System specifically designed for its effectiveness in similar environments. This, together with the system’s suitability in overcoming the difficult installation issues presented by such a structure, resulted in an effective solution for the client.
Premier has considerable experience in the design and installation of VESDA systems where the early detection of the presence of smoke is of critical importance. PFS now maintain Tropical House life safety systems direct for Marwell zoo.
