Nobel Fire Systems has carried out what is quite literally one of its tallest orders yet —the design of a fire suppression system for one of the UK’s highest restaurants.
Nobel was commissioned by Halton to design and install a fire suppression system for the 100-cover Oblix restaurant, which has just opened on the 32nd floor of the Shard in London.
As the kitchen is constantly open to view by guests, foodservice design consultants Humble Arnold specified that all equipment needed to be as “minimalist” as possible.
Nobel says its K-Series was the only system on the market able to exactly match the specification with the installed system now being indiscernible to restaurant guests.
The system is electronically controlled with no mechanical moving parts.
Ben Parker, commercial director of Nobel Fire Systems, stated: “The combination of proven technology and great-looking design features played an integral role in Nobel winning this highly prestigious project. It’s a powerful combination that has already been put into practice by discerning restaurant kitchens throughout Europe”.
