INSTALLATION NEWS Vitesse puts Speedo in the swim

CP Electronic’s Vitesse Plus and Vitesse Modular lighting control systems have been installed to great effect in the impressive new HQ of swimwear giant Speedo in Nottingham.

Speedo has signed a 17-year lease for its 43,000 sq ft. headquarters which houses 175 staff, who were previously based at offices on Ascot Road in Nottingham. The site hosts Speedo’s global Aqualab Research and Development Centre and acts as the brand's international base for visiting partners and athletes sponsored by Speedo. CP’s

Vitesse Plus Lighting

Distribution System offering presence detection daylight linking has been used throughout the open plan offices. Vitesse is a marshalling box with simple, pluggable outputs that allow ease of installation and commissioning. It provides up to 10 outputs, enabling it to be used with a

range of control options including photocell-controlled and manual dimming, presence or absence detection, corridor linking and manual switching, as well as testing of emergency lighting. It also offers a manual override for the presence detection. With three configurable channels and numerable functions, Vitesse Plus provides a high level of lighting control without the need for a control network. Vitesse Modular has also been installed to provide presence detection in circulation areas and toilets, with absence detection and dimming in the smaller offices. In a selection of rooms CP’s VITM6-SELVMOD was also incorporated into the system to provide SELV dimming control for DSI or DALI ballasts. The contractor was familiar with Vitesse and, as the system has the flexibility to meet specification and functionality required, a speedy and efficient installation was guaranteed.

Dorgard wins a place at Oxford

Keble College Oxford, founded in 1870 and now one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford, has installed Dorgard wireless fire door retainers in a number of locations around the college buildings to legally and safely hold open fire doors and enhance access without compromising fire safety.

Wireless Dorgard enables fire doors to be legally and safely kept open as it allows the door to close when the fire alarm sounds, preventing the spread of fire and smoke. Installed onto the bottom of the fire door in under five minutes, Dorgard listens for a continuous fire alarm of 65dBA or higher. Dorgard features include a wireless unit with fail-to-safe technology and improved

access throughout the buildings in line with the Equality Act 2010. It also complies with BS EN 1155, is accepted by the Fire and Rescue Service and available in a variety of colours and finishes. Keble's Maintenance Manager, Luigi Bruno,

says: “Dorgards have been fitted to fire doors throughout the college buildings from our Victorian buildings right through to our newest Sloane Robinson building. They are a neat and effective solution to the problem of legally and safely holding open fire doors as they enhance access whilst protecting students and staff should the fire alarm sound. Installation proved to be very easy too, with none of the disruption normally associated with installing wired-in door closers.”
