When the English Whisky Company, the first whisky distillery built in England in 120 years, needed to upgrade their fire detection, an Argus system was the obvious solution.
Their insurers were demanding a more robust and high spec fire detection system for the distillery and warehousing. However, the extremely thick concrete floors in the main building combined with the issue of no access for cabling from one part to another posed a real problem. Ironically the construction that was designed to minimise fire risk made subsequent installation of a wired fire detection system extremely difficult.
Argus' wireless system was therefore the ideal choice. Not only did it circumvent the construction issues, the incredibly quiet and dust-free installation process minimised disturbance to the distillery’s customers, and the building’s fittings and fixtures, meaning no redecoration and no need to close to trade for even a day.
We’ll drink to that!
