The project in brief

Aloft Hotel Excel is located in London’s Royal Docks.

The hotel has approximately 250 guestrooms including 12 suites, along with a bar, restaurant, lounge, snack bar, gym, pool, sauna, steam room, business center and meeting rooms.

As the Aloft Hotel Excel is a part of the ExCel International Convention Centre, it was important for the owners that a fire protection system reducing business interruption in case of fires was chosen. Further it was important that the chosen system would blend into the surroundings. The VID Fire-Kill Model OH Nozzles were therefore a perfect match for the project.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

  • Less water storage and much smaller pumps compared to sprinkler solutions ensured more space for hotel rooms,
  • Less water in case of activation reduced the risk for water damages in adjacent rooms, which reduced possible business interruption,
  • Semi concealed nozzle design and individual specific nozzle color ensured a perfect finish, and a perfect blend into the surroundings.

Some specifics

Pendant semi-concealed low pressure watermist nozzles from the OH-range were installed discreet in ceilings. Several nozzle colors where delivered for this project ensuring that the nozzles blended into the areas where they were installed.
