From full sized branches to small kiosks, from Minehead to London, Costa is relying on flexible and reliable protection from an innovative fire detection solution manufactured in the UK by Fike Safety Technology (FST). All the systems have been supplied, tested and commissioned by Commfire and installed by Zero Electrical Design on behalf of Cordery Build, the main shopfitting contractor.
The TwinFlexpro system incorporates the Multipoint combined smoke and heat detector with built-in sounder, which allows the whole system to be easily installed using only one pair of wires per zone. As Multipoint offers seven different modes of detection, the installation is made even simpler since the one device suits all applications. A typical Costa shop has between 12 to 16 devices installed on a 2 or 4 zone control panel.
Systems have been installed in London’s Kings Mall, Hammersmith, Chiswick High Road and at St Mary Axe. In addition outlets at Minehead, Shirley in Southampton, Berkhampsted and Lion Retail Park in Woking have used the TwinFlexpro system.
