Case Studies

Chessington World of Adventures

Taylor Technology Systems was commissioned to install a state-of-the-art Gent by Honeywell FAAST aspirating smoke detection technology system on The Gruffalo River Ride at Chessington World of Adventures.

The Gruffalo River Ride opened at Chessington World of Adventures, generating much excitement among thrill-seeking children, as well as some adults.

Life safety is a key priority for Merlin Entertainments, and with such a large number of people on site at any time, keeping them safe includes protecting them from the potentially devastating consequences of fire and smoke.

TTS specified and installed a FAAST aspirating smoke detection solution, comprising three LT and three 8100E systems. FAAST is a new generation of technology that consists of an enclosure housing the electronics that are powered from a supply, and a fan inside it that draws air in via pipes connected to the unit.

Routine maintenance, such as cleaning or replacing damaged filters, can be carried out easily at ground level, avoiding the requirement to close down the ride and erect scaffolding.
