Exclusive wedding venue selects Nobel’s K-Series
Located in Cheshire, Thornton Manor is a Grade 11 listed Elizabethan Manor House now used as a conference and events centre. It’s also regarded as being a premier venue for weddings and featured recently in an episode of BBC 1’s “Don’t Tell the Bride”.
The “Music Room” kitchen which provides the majority of food for guests has recently had a new fire suppression system fitted and as part of the initial process to find a specialist partner to design and install a system, the estates manager contacted a number of companies before awarding the contract to Nobel Fire Systems. This followed a site survey by Nobel’s engineers and their response to the Thornton Manor brief that demanded practicality and efficiency combined with aesthetics for this important project. Another important part of the brief was the requirement for an overlapping system where the nozzles are arranged to overlap and provide a fire-free zone across a group of appliances.
Nobel has now seamlessly installed its award winning K-Series fire suppression system into this busy kitchen environment. As a result, Nobel was then invited back to Thornton Manor to install another K-Series system, this time in the “Dining Room” kitchen.
Manufactured in stainless steel to enhance the working life and endurance of the product, all pipework, nozzles, detection and controls have been installed in complete sympathy with the appearance, functionality and strict hygiene requirements of the Thornton Manor kitchens.
The electrical nature of the K-Series system ensures that all circuits can be fully monitored for fault conditions and therefore provides a distinct advantage over other ‘mechanical’ systems. Thornton Manor now has full protection to all its cooking appliances and extract canopy through this tailor made fire suppression system.
Ben Parker, Commercial Director of Nobel Fire Systems commented;
“Today, the aesthetics of contemporary physical space in commercial kitchens is becoming an increasingly important consideration for owners and designers. We believe that it’s therefore imperative that we contribute products that deal with the requirement positively and creatively. The Nobel K-Series system does just that”.
