Booths and FP at Media City UK

Prysmian’s FP200 Gold and FP Plus™ cables have been installed in Booths Food Store, a family owned supermarket chain within the MediaCityUK site at Salford Quays. The £1.2 million shop includes a café and the fi rst food store for the development in Manchester. MediaCityUK is the new home for BBC North, a new multi-million pound studios facility, a new campus for the University of Salford and over 60 small businesses.

MediaCityUK is a 200 acre site, caters for thousands of people on a daily basis and safety is of paramount importance for the development’s only food store. Consequently, FP200 Gold has been used for the fi re alarm system and FP Plus™ for the disabled refuge in the shop and café area. Prysmian’s FP Plus™ with enhanced Insudite™ insulation provides an unmatched combination of rigidity and fl exibility that is already well established with the market leading FP200 Gold and FP Plus™ comply with fire alarm standard, BS 5839 and the emergency lighting standard, BS 5266 as “standard” and “enhanced” fi re resistant cable. In addition, FP200 Gold and FP Plus™ has received BASEC and LPCB approval and both incorporate Prysmian’s unique Insudite™, which greatly reduces the risk of third party damage.

Solid State Security carried out the work and Lead Engineer Mark Mather explains: “FP200 Gold and FP Plus™ were specifi ed for this project due to the products’ all-round quality and the fact that they have all necessary third party approvals.”

Mark continues: “The cable can be stripped with ease, enabling the installation process to be quick and effi cient. My team particularly like the added benefi t of the easy-to-carry reels as the handle allows us to get the cable on site with improved speed.”

Solid State Security began the installation in May and completed the project in October 2011. The Booths family have owned and developed the business through fi ve generations, from one small shop to twentyeight across the country. The brand new two-storey store at MediaCityUK provides customers with a wide choice of locally sourced food and drink.
