GENT BY HONEYWELL Vigilon Systems Chosen For Theo Paphitis’ New Boux Avenue Lingerie Stores

The Fire Industry expert, Gent by Honeywell, has installed its fire alarm systems into three out of the six newly launched Boux Avenue stores.

Boux Avenue is an exciting shopping experience both in-store and online for lingerie lovers. Placing an unrivalled emphasis on detail and fit, the inclusive size range and outstanding service both in Boux Avenue stores and at www.bouxavenue.comensure it’s an irresistible lingerie destination.

Launched in April by successful businessman and BBC Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis, the stores situated in Bluewater in Kent, Manchester’s Trafford Centre and St David’s Centre, Cardiff are equipped with Vigilon Compact Panels and S-Quad multi sensors, part of Gent’s extensive range of innovative fire detection equipment.

One of the companies from Gent’s wide network of approved system integrators, Amsec UK Ltd, worked with electrical contractors Walsh Integrated Building Services on the project, to design a state of the art robust system which will provide Boux Avenue’s customers with a safe and unique shopping environment.

Ashley Holt, Director at Amsec, said: “Right from the initial stages we proposed a design using Gent’s specifiable technology. We knew that the client was integrating it into shopping centres so the set up involves multiple individual units connecting into an overall system which is monitored by the shopping centre. We needed a suitable system which could cope with the different types of signals and the flexibility of the Gent system made it the ideal choice. The Vigilon compact panels offer the right programming capabilities, the panels are designed for smaller sites yet they include all of the features of the bigger panels”.

Theo Paphitis has announced plans to launch a number of Boux Avenue lingerie and nightwear stores at various locations across the UK over the next 12 months. The current stores, which were fitted in March, have all been installed with Vigilon Compact Panels. The flexible panels are ideal for smaller systems needing up to two loops and have a simple user interface with LCD screen to provide accurate information in an emergency. The panels in the Boux Avenue shops were installed along side S-Quad sensors from Gent’s latest range, they incorporate four separate technologies in the same sensor that combine to create a range of sensing appropriate for different environments. Every S-Quad sensor has a configurable monitored input. This can be used instead of an interface saving on installation and product costs.

Amsec UK ltd, an electronic fire and security company based in North Wales was recently appointed as an approved systems integrator. Initial feedback from the client suggests that the stores’ electrical systems have been very well received.

Martyn Keenan, Gent Business Development Manager, North West, “The fire alarm system is one of the most vital components in any building to ensure the safety of both employees and customers and the quality and reliability of the Gent systems will provide a suitable fire alarm solution to meet the extremely high standards of the Boux Avenue stores. In the early negotiations we weren’t aware of who owned the Boux Avenue chain. We’re delighted to be working with Amsec on such a prestigious project and I’m sure the shops will be a great success with someone like Theo Paphitis at the helm.”
