Project Case Study



Fire Alarm Aspirating Sensing Technology (FAAST)



One of the world’s leading metal recyclers, EMR recently enlisted our support to further safeguard them against the risk of fire at their Oldbury recycling depot. Due to the vast quantities of metal they manage, their halls are huge with 18 metre high ceilings and equipped with bulky heavy plant making them awkward from an installation perspective.

Following an extensive survey, Bryland Fire recommended the Honeywell Gent FAAST XM™ – the very latest in Fire Alarm Aspirating Sensing Technology which is designed to deliver highly accurate and early warning fire detection. Product solution selected it was a matter of installation method to consider. Due to the high ceilings various access equipment including standard booms, spider lifts and truck-mounted machines were rejected as impractical. Instead, and always looking to offer the best and most practical solution, Bryland called upon the assistance of Midlands based rope access specialists Rope Task. Between them the project took over 290 man hours with 550 metres of pipework installed to replace the previous fire protection system.

‘We are delighted with the product, the service and the quality of the installation. Working in a high risk of fire industry, this gives us the peace of mind, knowing that we have taken all precautions to safeguard our people, buildings and assets.’
