The works were within the Main Hospitals Clinics, Consulting Rooms and Offices around Queen Square and phased (including out of hours working) to enable the buildings to remain operational.
The work included installing a Thorlux platform 2 emergency lighting system. This system is fully addressable, which means there is no more manual testing of emergency lighting by shutting down the power and manually checking the lights.
The system is installed in zones and each zone has a control unit wired into the lights in that zone. The emergency LED lights are then monitored by the zonal report unit, so when testing you plug in the hand held PC to the zonal report unit and it goes through the lights indicating any faulty units. You then look to the drawing to find where the lights are situated and make the necessary repairs.
The zonal report switch can take up to 30 lights so marking each light is essential. All the LED lights are interlinked so the whole system is addressable, which saves the costly maintenance and the inconvenience faced when manually testing conventional systems.
We also carried out normal 240V electrical works and 3-phase 440V works on the air-conditioning and air handling plant.
