Advanced is Installer’s Choice at Ultra-Luxe Marassi Al Bahrain Resort

18 Aug 2021

Industry-leading fire protection solutions from global fire systems manufacturer, Advanced have been chosen to protect the prestigious waterfront mall, hotel and serviced apartments development in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

A network of 19 UL-864-approved Axis AX fire panels from Advanced has been installed at the 178,000m2 Marassi Galleria shopping mall. A further network of 14 Axis AX fire panels were also installed at the mall’s adjoining waterfront boutique hotel and high-end serviced apartments – the Vida Hotel and Residences.

A combined total of 47 panels comprising 31 4-loop Axis AX panels, two 4-loop Axis AX panels with integrated telephone and voice evacuation systems, 2 mimic panels, two repeater panels and two graphical command centres will form the core of the active fire protection for the $374m resort, once completed at the end of 2021.

In total, the Axis AX panels from Advanced will be linked to almost 11,000 devices including 6,400 smoke/heat detectors and a further 2,823 control/monitoring modules. The graphical command centres for each network will provide user-friendly system visibility and control, with each fire system being networked with a host of third-party equipment, including lifts, escalators, air handling units, gas suppression systems, CO systems and fan and damper solutions.  

Overseeing the installation, testing and commissioning of the entire fire system are Dubai-based, Cignetix Systems, who were awarded the project by the Shapoorji Pallonji Group. Being one of the construction conglomerates, Shapoorji Group ascertains that the right product goes into their projects. Having said that, their MEP Division Vice President, Mr. E.J. Joseph along with their DGM, Mr. Dileep Zalpuri opted to propose Advanced fire systems which they have utilized in their multiple projects to execute this prestigious project. With many technical meetings and discussions with Mr. Harish Sharma, the Projects Director of Shapoorji Group who is handling the project has proposed Advanced Fire Systems to the client M/s DIYAR- Eagle Hills. The Client representative who is in charge of the Project, Dr. Mohammed Al Abed- Director has accepted the product after review by PACE consultant engineer, Mr. Guru Murthy.

Sunil Gopalkrishnan, Managing Director at Cignetix, said: “Once complete, Marassi Al Bahrain Mall, Hotel and Residences will be home to tens of thousands of occupants enjoying all the development has to offer on the southern island shores of Diyar Al Muharraq. For this reason, it was crucial that the fire protection chosen should be capable of delivering the highest levels of performance, quality and ease of use. Alpha Fire, Bahrain has offered their local support in the project execution and Civil Defence approval process.

“Having installed Advanced solutions in a wide variety of sites, Cignetix was confident that their reliability, networking and false alarm management and reduction capabilities, combined with intuitive operation, would make them the ideal solution for a development of this scale.”

In developing the mall, hotel and residential apartments’ false alarm management and reduction strategy, a two-stage positive alarm sequence has been programmed and integrated with third-party life safety interfaces, enabling the immediate activation of these systems without delay in fire situations.

Advanced’s Axis AX system delivers power and performance in a user-friendly format with a vast range of configuration, control and interface options as well as simple set-up and operation. The Axis AX system includes easily networked panels, audio panels and command centres, redundant controllers and a huge range of peripherals, devices and interfaces that make it ideal for almost any installation.

Gary Craig, Sales and Marketing Director at Advanced, said: “As one of the largest development projects in Bahrain, we’re thrilled to be supporting Cignetix with the equipment required to ensure the safety of thousands of employees, residents and tourists who will live, work, rest and play at the Marassi Al Bahrain Mall, Hotel and Residences.

“The false alarm management capabilities of our products are particularly helpful on this mixed use site. They allow you to refine and configure protection very specifically according to the requirements of separate areas within a building – helping to keep unwanted alarms to a minimum and reducing disruption and risk to staff, guests and residents.”

Advanced’s fire telephone solution is ideal for high and low-rise apartment buildings, hotels, universities, government and military sites where local fire departments and emergency personnel need access to fire/emergency communications. Designed for clear, easy-to-use control, the conventional system benefits from LED status indications showing its operational state – whether the system has a call-in, is connected or is in fault condition. The fire telephone system can be configured as either a standalone, independent system or completely integrated into the Axis AX fire system.

Advanced, owned by FTSE 100 company Halma PLC, protects a wide range of prestigious and high-profile sites across the globe – from London’s Shard to Abu Dhabi International Airport and the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macau Bridge.
