shentongroup’s generators for ‘Life Safe’ applications

shentongroup, has launched a range of standby diesel generators and associated control systems that meets the life safety requirements of


BS EN8519: 2010. Called PhoenixPower, generators are available in sizes from 20kVA to 800kVA and have been specifically developed to provide secondary power for ‘Life Safety’ and fire-fighting systems.

As buildings have evolved to become

taller, larger and ever more complex, it has been necessary to develop new fire- engineered solutions in case of fire and other life-threatening events. These solutions are required to provide a high level of performance to protect life in the event of fire, especially the emergency services which are at even greater risk if such systems fail. BS EN8519 provides guidance and recommendations on the selection and installation of fire resistant power and control cable systems for ‘Life Safety’ events. shentongroup’s PhoenixPower range

ower support company,

differs from ‘normal’ standby power solutions by being specifically designed to meet BS EN8519. Switching the supply from the mains power to the PhoenixPower generator or secondary mains supply is carried out automatically by shentongroup’s PhoenixControl changeover panel, which is designed for dual mains sources and meets the new standard.

The PhoenixControl changeover panel detects a ‘Life Safety’ event and automatically switches the power source from the normal mains power the to the PhoenixPower generator or the secondary mains supply to ensure continuity of supply to fire fighting lifts and other essential equipment. Electrically and mechanically interlocked to ensure the isolation of the two supplies, the PhoenixControl has indicators to show the supply and switching status to the generator as well as a key switch to facilitate testing.

Bespoke rooflight solution from delivers bright future


he versatility of Xtralite’s products and services has

been highlighted thanks to the Northumberland- based rooflight manufacturer’s

involvement in providing a bespoke rooflight solution for a new £48 million academy in Hull. Funded by the

‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme, the Sirius Academy required an innovative rooflight solution that could reflect its own unique, oval- shaped design. Working closely with roofing contractor Chemplas Ltd, Xtralite manufactured and installed two thermally enhanced ridgelights, measuring 33m x 28m and 24m x 28m.

Sat above the school’s full-height central atrium space, the ridgelights allow the maximum amount of daylight to

illuminate the space below which houses an innovative learning environment plus a number of multi-use spaces.

Central to the

success of the installation has been the close liaison between Xtralite’s design team and

Chemplas Ltd, who both worked together with the contractor to overcome the complex area of interface between the roof and the rooflight. Sirius Academy boasts new teaching

spaces, a six-court sports hall and three multi-use games areas, as well as specialist areas such as dance studios. It is anticipated that the Sirius Academy will achieve a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating. Tel: 01670 354157
