Construction fire safety: Bull Products upgrades first-responder stations with height-extending detector

Bull Products, which specialises in developing life-safety equipment for the construction industry, says its revamped first-responder stations will cut costs for contractors and construction companies.

Based on its on-site investigations into the effectiveness of existing processes and equipment, the Hereford-based company has added an optional, height-extending pole to the stations. It says the addition makes detection installation quicker and cheaper as wireless detectors are not required.

The pole can extend to a height of over three metres and can be adjusted to install the detector at any height between 2.1 and 3.2 metres from the ground.

The stations, which incorporate fire extinguishers and a Cygnus fire alarm, are fully mobile. In contrast, conventional heat and smoke detectors are fixed to ceilings or walls using ladders or podiums, creating a safety risk for those installing them.

“We’re continuously looking at ways to solve issues within the industry and improve our products to make lives easier for construction companies and M & E contractors,” said Matthew Trigwell, sales director at Bull Products. “This height-extending detector will not only improve safety for our customers on construction sites but it will provide a time-saving and efficient solution.”

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can also be installed with the pole.

The detector is hard-wired to the alarm through a spare input and is only compatible with the CYG2 and CYG2/85DB Cygnus alarms.
