Chain Bridge Honey Farm gets fire safety upgrade


Chain Bridge Honey Farm, a honey production and visitor attraction, has upgraded its fire safety systems with the installation of Comelit-PAC’s LogiFire solution with cloud capability.
Located in the countryside of Horncliffe, UK, The Chain Bridge Honey Farm is a family business, started by beekeeping advisor William Selby Robson in 1948. The farm presents three honey houses and a visitor centre, together with over 2,000 hives.

To enhance fire safety measures initially at the Farm’s popular Visitor Centre, the team reportedly consulted with local specialists SPARC Fire and Security to design and install a compliant fire safety system.

Comelit-PAC’s LogiFire system was then recommended as a ‘self-addressing solution’ that is designed to enable monitoring and management through cloud technology. Says Frances Robson of Chain Bridge Honey Farm: “Our farm attracts thousands of visitors each year who come and learn about beekeeping, explore the farm’s honey products and experience the beauty of nature. The visitor centre is a popular destination, especially with our observation hive, which is essential for us to keep safe and secure.

“SPARC Fire and Security worked closely with us to update our existing fire safety system, recommending LogiFire for its bespoke capabilities and advanced features, which ensures we are compliant with the latest legislation. Its installation was so seamless, we’re already looking at further ways to utilise LogiFire across our vast farm site to ensure staff, visitors, and valuable assets are well-protected from fire hazards.”

LogiFire addressable system has been designed to offer a simple-to-install, fire safety solution. It is also said to complement a range of detectors that are designed to blend with their surroundings.

Andrew Harris, Director at Sparc Fire and Security added: “Chain Bridge Honey Farm faced the challenge of updating their existing fire safety infrastructure to meet evolving safety regulations and ensure comprehensive coverage across their expansive facility.

“They required a system that would not only provide remote early detection and reliable fire alarms but also offer seamless integration with their existing systems. LogiFire ticked all the boxes, especially being a self-addressing, cloud-based system which offers remote monitoring capability for the management team.”

Mandy Bowden, Comelit-PAC Fire Manager concluded: “Chain Bridge Honey Farm really is a unique location, and showcases the true capability of LogiFire to accommodate any site without compromise to compliance, style or unparalleled capabilities.

“Its bespoke features and use of advanced technology enable swift identification and resolution of any system issues, ensuring optimal performance at all times. As a result, Chain Bridge Honey Farm can focus on its core operations of producing gorgeous honey products, safe in the confidence that its premises and visitors are protected by a state-of-the-art fire safety system.”
