Fire-safe eating and shopping in Hong Kong

Published:  02 September, 2014

Premier shopping mall Pacific Place now protected with SharpEye optical flame detectors from Spectrex.

Pacific Place, one of the premier shopping malls in Hong Kong, is a complex of office towers, hotels and a shopping center situated in Admiralty, Hong Kong.

The four-storey mall is home to over 130 shops and boutiques and two major department stores, collectively offering an array of contemporary fashion and luxury brands. Pacific Place is also home to three five-star hotels, a boutique hotel, three grade-A office towers and 270 five-star serviced apartments. The Mall at Pacific Place is the heart of the complex, over 711,000 ft2 of up-market stores and boutiques, numerous dining outlets, and a six-house Cineplex.

The restaurant at Pacific Place required small, reliable and accurate fire detectors to ensure that any potential fire would be tackled appropriately, while causing no false alarms. They therefore implemented a fire protection solution that included SharpEye 20/20ML optical flame detectors. The solution combines 20/20ML detectors and long-throw sprinklers to counter the challenging environment of a busy open-kitchen restaurant. Commented a Spectrex spokesperson: ‘We are fully committed to enhancing the safety of your employees, capital investments and to the environment. Being the first to launch major innovations that have become trade standards such as the first UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, Spectrex continues to offer over 40 different flame detector designs to meet application challenges from offshore to mall floors, from Alaska to Malaysia. Spectrex was first to incorporate the Xenon Flash in OPGDs [open path gas detectors] to solve false alarm issues common in the industry. Today, over 28 major OPGD designs are offered by Spectrex for continuous hydrocarbon and toxic gas monitoring.’
