Hydrosense protects new Dublin Airport control tower
Vimpex's Hydrosense water leak detection system has been installed in Dublin Airport’s new Visual Control Tower (VCT) to protect the new state-of-the-art facility from water ingress, which could seriously damage electrical, communication and computer networks.
The 87m high tower is Ireland’s tallest occupied structure and is a commanding new addition to the city’s skyline. It comprises three separate, but integrated, building elements: the control cab and associated elements, the cab supporting shaft, and a base building. The base building will accommodate staff facilities, electronic systems and mechanical plant space, to provide control of the building environment.
Vimpex’s Hydrosense water leak detection systems are delivering the new standard in water leak detection. They are applying the integrity, control and reliability of life safety and building infrastructure systems, to protect against water ingress that could seriously damage critical IT and communication infrastructure. The systems continuously monitor for water leaks around the clock, year in year out, and have the facility for a 72-hour battery standby in the event of power failure. Should a leak be detected, the control panel sounds an alarm that can be extended to a remote location. When an alarm is raised, Vimpex Hydro-Cryer voice sounders can be used to broadcast an unambiguous message, avoiding confusion with other sounders on site...
