London nHow Hotel
Alphatrack Systems supplied, installed and commissioned a fire alarm system into London's nHow hotel.
Designed by renowned architect, James Soane, the nHow London is a design-led hotel located in London's up and coming East End.
The 190-room property, located in a mixed-use development, includes a restaurant, bar, gym, meeting rooms and 190 guest-rooms.
Alphatrack systems was appointed by Holmes Metrotech to complete the supply, installation & commissioning of the hotel's fire alarm system, disabled refuge system & toilet alarm system.
The hotel's eccentric design proved a challenge when ensuring the proposed fire alarm system was installed in accordance with BS5839:1-2017 - and also in line with the interior designer’s aesthetic expectations.
Alphatrack Systems provided factory painted black detection devices in the gym and restaurant (to match the black painted ceilings!) and a fire alarm control panel, displaying the latest touch screen and LED warning technology.
A ‘traditional’ wired addressable fire alarm system wasn't in keeping with the nHow brand's guest-room aesthetic, as a consequence, Alphatrack utilised wireless technology instead. This Hybrid system removes the need for cabling and/or subsequent containment to be installed in any of the guest-rooms, as a result, retained the exposed concrete slab ceilings' clean cut finish.
