Apollo Is First In Line At Ikea Belfast
At 29,000 square metres, IKEA Belfast will be one of the retailer's flagship stores and will stock the full product range, totalling 9,500 items. The client specified an open protocol fire detection system designed to L1 standards. Ashdale Engineering recommended two Advanced MX4004 panels to govern over 400 Apollo XP95 optical smoke detectors, manual call points and 35 interface devices, configured to operate a phased evacuation.
Ashdale Engineering was also responsible for supplying and installing a Signet PA/VA system, which includes a link to allow communication with disabled people during an emergency.
John Richardson, Technical Sales Engineer for Ashdale, comments: "We have used Apollo products for many years and regularly recommend them to meet our client's specifications. The installation, design and implementation phases of the IKEA Belfast project went very smoothly, allowing us to finish ahead of schedule. This was undoubtedly aided by the expert and efficient service delivered by Apollo and is a credit to all parties concerned."
Andy Turner, Apollo's Sales Manager for Ireland, comments: "This is a significant project for both Apollo and Ashdale. We are delighted that IKEA has chosen our fire detection technology to protect people, products and premises at its new store in Ireland.""
