Flex7 VF type Control Modules were used throughout the building. These control modules offer an extra, volt-free output that can be used alongside the lighting output. This extra output was used for the air conditioning, to ensure that both lights and air conditioning are automatically turn off when a room or area is not in use.
Specified by UR-EKA Lighting and Controls Ltd, flex7 were able to offer a bespoke lighting control solution that linked to the fire station's alarm system. Important lights in the building were networked together using flex7 network leads. A special flex7 Control Pack was connected to the alarm panel in the station, and receives a volt-free signal whenever the alarm goes off
flex7 were chosen to supply lighting connection and control products for the new headquarters of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service in Edinburgh. The new £33 million centre is based at Heriot-Watt Research Park, and incorporates offices, a cafe and state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities.
