NITTAN PROVIDES FIRE SAFETY SYSTEM FOR


NOTTINGHAM STUDENTS Nittan Europe’s Evolution Analogue Addressable fire detection system has been installed into a new student accommodation development in Beeston, Nottingham.


Dagfa House is a unique development of townhouses, clusters and studios adjacent to The University of Nottingham campus. It provides accommodation to 229 students as well as a range of leisure and study amenities.


At the heart of the development is a Grade two listed building that dates back to the 18th century and was converted into a school in 1948. This latest development has been undertaken by the Cassidy Group, which has more than 30 years of experience in construction and property.


The system was installed by Nottinghamshire-based integrated safety and security solutions provider, TIS.


One of the key fire safety challenges posed by the Dagfa House development was the mix of accommodation blocks, with some being relatively small. A cost-effective fire detection system was required that could potentially evacuate each site in the event of a fire and that would also be future proof, with spares readily available.


A Nittan Evolution Analogue Addressable, comprising two individually networked systems each utilising eight Evolution1 panels and Nittan devices, was chosen as the solution.


Chris Mills, Head of Fire Division at TIS explained: “TIS carried out market research of a number of fire alarm manufacturers before finally settling on the Nittan Evolution panel with Nittan devices which provided a single source approach while providing a cost effective and reliable solution.”

uses ASIC technology in the sensors and sophisticated detection algorithms, combining extremely reliable fire detection together with a very high degree of protection against unwanted false alarms. Its advanced, highly flexible protocol allows for substantial amounts of information to be transmitted at high speed and is not affected by the number of devices on the loop.


At Dagfa House, the Nittan Evolution1 Panel was selected because of its built-in network connectivity, making it extremely cost effective, plus its ease of installation and cause and effect configuration.


For primary detection in the majority of locations, Nittan’s EV-PYS Optical Detector with built-in sounder was selected for convenience, due to the reduced cost and time required compared to installing separate detectors and sounders, as well as the combined detector/sounder providing a more aesthetically pleasing solution.


In the open areas, such as the cinema room, games room, common


room and the communal garden terrace, Nittan EV-HIOP-SB High Output Sounder Beacon VADs were installed. These devices provide high volume sound, EN 54-23 compliant visual alarm and are waterproofed to IP65, making them suitable for the outdoor areas.


One of the most important devices in any fire alarm system is Manual Call Points, which are strategically located in the Dagfa House development at points of evacuation. Nittan EV-MCP2-SCI Call Point with built in short circuit isolators were chosen to ensure the loops were adequately protected, so the system remains compliant even under short circuit fault conditions. Each Call Point was also fitted with a hinged front cover for compliance with BS- 5839-1: 2017, the code of practice for designing, installing, commissioning, and maintaining fire detection and alarm systems.
