Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa


Sheraton Hotel One Square Bar2The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa is one of the most prestigious and luxurious 5 star hotels in Scotland, located on Lothian Road with views of the iconic Edinburgh Castle.

When the hotel was constructed in 1985 addressable fire alarm systems were still on the drawing board. The technology available then was not as intelligent as our modern day analogue addressable product line. It was functional but unable to identify anything smaller than a section of the building allocated into a physical fire zone, sometimes incorporating as many as 20 or 30 rooms. This presented the hotel management with a time consuming exercise to determine the exact location of a fire or fault event alerted to them by the fire alarm control panel.
