Radisson Blu chooses GFE as its fire detection technology provider for luxury resort in the UAE

Global Fire Equipment (GFE) designed, supplied and commissioned a new fire alarm system for the Radisson Blu Fujairah, a 257-room 5-star resort nestled along 500 metres of private beach in Dibba, Fujairah in the northeast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Radisson Hotel Group is one of the world’s largest hotel companies with more than 1,400 hotels in its portfolio.

The chosen 9-loop system for comprises two panels. The first has four loops, each of which connects to 110 devices which cover the main four-storey hotel building and two other connected four-storey buildings. The second panel has five loops, each of which connects to over 100 devices which cover the third connected four-storey building, the external areas of the three-storey health club, the two-storey diving centre, a bar and the four three-storey villas.  In total, the system comprises 780 smoke detectors, ten heat detectors, 40 manual call points (MCPs), 100 input output modules, 50 sounders, two network cards and ten amplifier modules.

Kamal A. Hadi, Regional Director Middle East & North Africa (MENA) at GFE, comments: “This was the first time we’ve supplied our equipment to the prestigious Radisson Blu hotel group. One of the biggest challenges we faced during this project was undertaking the installation work while the hotel remained open to guests. We worked closely with the hotel’s management team to undertake installation and commissioning one storey at a time, clearing each area of hotel guests while works were underway.”
