Flying is Safer at Heathrow with the Services of Honeywell
14 March 2012
Honeywell, a world leader in energy efficient and innovative safety and security technology has acquired the contract to provide the incorporated structure for public address, fire safety and the voice alarm systems of Heathrow Terminal 2. The contract which is amounting to €15.5 million is actually the second deal for Honeywell after its impressive set up of the same integrated system at the Terminal 5 of Heathrow airport. With this system, a guaranteed smart and orderly evacuation method will be carried out. In case of fire, the voice alarm system’s sensitive and intelligent detection will be clearly broadcasted within the area of concern only thereby evacuations are carried out easily without creating unnecessary confusion and commotion in other safe grounds.
The deal also requires Honeywell to set up building surveillance and management systems and fix lighting controls for Terminal 2. Since the terminal is utilising natural light to help in concerted efforts of energy conservation, the light controls are necessary. These lighting controls are designed to keep appropriate levels of light inside the terminal and have the capacity to efficiently adjust to constant changes in weather and lighting conditions outside. On the other hand, the building surveillance system is intended to closely watch all electrical, mechanical functions and services within the terminal to be certain and definite that all equipment is working at its best. With Honeywell, nothing is left to chance especially as its business is about safety and cost efficiency.
HETco project manager Daniel Garcia-Bernalt expresses confidence in the services of Honeywell because it has shown more than once its capability and unquestionable expertise when it comes to safety requirements of modern and prime airports as well as its valuable passengers. It earned the trust as the lead contractors of Heathrow terminals
because it was able to satisfy the strict standards of the industry as far as security and energy conservation is concerned. It continuously creates innovative technology and enhances its proficiency to address and meet the demanding challenges of major projects like Heathrow terminals.

Its integrated security set up with reliable video monitoring system has been providing various prestigious companies that necessitate austere and strict security measures which are energy efficient but at the same delivering quality performance. If it is relied upon by a crowded and key place like Heathrow airport, it means that Honeywell is a laudable company.
