Muller has recently completed an extensive expansion project building a chilled produce manufacturing facility in Telford.

he project has doubled the size of Muller’s current Telford site with three new state-of-

the-art production lines, energy efficient cooling facilities and automated warehouse. Luceco LED luminaires have been installed in many

areas including the cooling tunnel, dispatch, goods in and general plant areas, the installation work carried out by Lorne Stewart Engineering based in Birmingham. In many cases, the luminaires were required to be IP65 rated, robust and capable of DALI dimming with connection to a central battery system. Ceres Extra HighBay luminaires were selected for

the principle production areas. IP65 rated, Ceres Extra benefits from a computer designed die-cast aluminium housing with vortex cooling for maximum LED chip performance and provides over 100,000 hours of operational life and a luminaire efficacy up to of 140 Llm/cW. Climate Extra was also installed in plant areas,

comprising of a robust LED IP65 rated luminaire offering an efficacy of 140 Llm/cW and 50,000 hours operational life with increased performance for improved energy efficiency. Climate Extra is available with integral microwave sensors in on /off or 10% corridor function or batten fit PIR sensors as well as DALI drivers and emergency back-up variants including Self-Test.

Product News New Fire & CO Alarm Guidance

Kidde has launched new editions of its CPD discussion documents to help all those involved with housing rethink their approach to fire and carbon monoxide alarms.

In an uncertain world, Kidde’s new CPD guides will help stockists understand the issues involved with fire and CO safety. One certainty today is that smoke, heat and CO alarms offer the first line of defence against fire or carbon monoxide in all types of housing, providing critical early warning at low costs. But the right provision of alarms, both to detect fire or CO, and also ensure that occupants are alerted throughout the home, is critical. Here, Kidde’s independently certified ‘Guide to regulations & standards’ documents – one covering smoke and heat alarms, the other CO alarms – can help. In addition to reviewing current minimum requirements, topical issues and conflicts between the various current and proposed standards and regulations are addressed as ‘Talking Points’ to help readers question recommendations and make their own judgements. For example, BS5839-6:2019, the new Code of Practice for fire alarm systems in housing, includes important changes focused on alarm system ‘Grades’ (the reliability of a system in terms of its power sources) and ‘Categories’ (in which areas smoke/heat alarms are required for detection). But conflicts with Building Regulations Approved Document B still remain. The Scottish Government has also made major changes to the ‘Tolerable


Standard’, applying to all housing tenures and taking effect from February 2021. In essence, the minimum safety standards currently in place for private rented properties will be extended to all other tenures, including social housing, and

n particular, they address issues raised by a new Code of Practice, wide-ranging requirements in Scotland and the continuing absence of improvements to English Building Regulations.

owner-occupied homes. This means a system of interconnected smoke and heat alarms, including smoke alarms in principal living rooms and heat alarms in all kitchens, as well as smoke alarms in circulation areas on each storey. In addition, CO alarms will also be required in all homes with combustion appliances. The Scottish requirements consider that: “it makes practical sense to combine installation programmes for smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms together”. This enlightened approach heralds the way for combining smoke, heat and CO alarms to provide more coverage and ensure that occupiers are awoken and alerted wherever they are in the property, whatever the risk. Kidde’s well-established Smart Interconnect facility was developed to meet this very need.

Luceco lights Muller Expansion Project in Telford, Shropshire T

Platinum Mini Downlighters lit non industrial spaces such as corridors, circulation areas and staff rooms and features easy fit positive locating swing out tabs for quick installation. Platinum Mini, Ceres Extra and Climate Extra are all ideal for use with sensors and lighting controls including LiteIP to further improve energy efficiency and has dimmable and emergency options available. LiteIP is an intelligent wireless lighting system requiring no complicated electrical installation and no limit to the number of luminaires that can be controlled and is compatible with all driver types including DSI, DALI and 1-10 V. Externally, Luceco supplied the Fortis Wall Pack to

provide building perimeter lighting. Fortis offers an energy efficient alternative to HID fittings with a 45W LED luminaire being the equivalent of a 70W traditional HID fitting, and a High Space to Height ratio providing the ideal retrofit alternative to existing Wall Pack installations. With CRI>80, Fortis Wall Pack is ideal for areas with CCTV and variants include standard output, photocell, and emergency options. Kingfisher Lighting, part of the Luceco group, also supplied luminaires for this project. Italo LED lanterns

were wall mounted and used to illuminate transportation docks as well as column mounted to light the access route into the plant.
