lighting controls at Wakefield Fire Station

flex7’s lighting connection & control products have been installed in the new £2.9m Wakefield Fire Station

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. This signal acts like a switch, and triggers the control pack to turn on all networked lights in the building. This system ensures that staff within the building can respond quickly and safely to all alarm calls, day or night.

flex7 lighting distribution boxes and prewired leads were used throughout the buildings, and in areas with non-essential lights standard on/off controls were installed.
