The Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel completed the building of its new hotel wing, The Ushuaïa Tower, in May 2013. With breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea and Playa d’en Bossa beach, the eight storey hotel offers 181 indulgent rooms with state-of-the-art technology and luxury features, as well as two restaurants and conference facilities for up to 200 people.
As part of the build, Apollo Fire Detectors, was selected as the technology provider by Pitiusas de Seguridad, the company appointed to supply and commission the fire system for the new hotel wing.
In total, nearly 650 Apollo XP95 detectors were specified to meet the main fire detection requirements in the Ushuaïa Tower. The intelligent system was designed around two networked four loop Kentec Syncro fire panels approved and certified to EN54 parts 2 and 4.
In addition to luxury accommodation, the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel complex is also famous for hosting open air parties, attracting up to 5,000 people a night who flock to see the biggest DJs in the world, as well as a host of celebrity and VIP guests.
Due to the vibrant nature of the hotel, a large number of guests and visitors are present both inside and outside of the premises at any given time. This, coupled with the fact that very loud music is a feature of the Ushuaïa experience, led the Apollo design team to recommend a wide variety of interior and exterior fire sounders and visual indicators, including multi-tone alerts.
