Fire Safety And Large Entertainment Venues

Fire safety for large entertainment venues, like big clubs, stadiums and festival grounds has always been a concern.

Unfortunately, using traditional fire detection methods are not always suitable for these locations.

Smoke detectors may work decently well in small, confined spaces, but they are pretty useless for monitoring large outdoor spaces or large structures such as manufacturing plants and similar.

A modern fire sensor that uses digital imaging technology can now provide reliable detection of fires in such cases. Compared to smoke detectors, CCTV fire sensors operate entirely differently. They are not relying on detecting smoke or heat in their direct vicinity, but instead work by detecting fires by analysing a video feed in real-time.

Digital fire sensors have several big advantages: they can cover a big area to detect fires from a distance. Modern fire cameras can detect even small and confined fires from several hundred metres away. Their detection rate is also excellent. The FCam by Ciqurix for example can detect fires in only 10-12 seconds.

What’s more, compared to old-fashioned fire detection systems like smoke detectors, the Fcam can automatically summon the fire brigade when a fire is being detected. Compared to traditional fire detection methods, response times are greatly decreased so that personal or structural damage from fires can be kept at a minimum. Fire sensors like the Fcam are now increasingly more used to provide safety and security and many places where reliable fire detection just several years ago was almost impossible.

A digital fire sensor can greatly increase the safety for your home, business or entertainment venue.

It’s *Not* Easy to Find a Good Place For Pilates in East London

Living in a city that harbors 10 million people, a world-city without doubt, one would think it shouldn’t cause any problems to find ANYTHING, including good fitness studios.

Obviously, this doesn’t apply when we’re talking about East London. I could write a book about my wife’s various experiences now searching for a good place for her weekly Pilates classes.

But rather than going on a major ranting spree now, let’s just sum up some of the troubles:

  • Entirely incompetent fitness trainers and coaches (think: part-time students)
  • Unfriendly staff who don’t really care
  • Outdated equipment that is in poor shape
  • Lack of variety when it comes to fitness classes and courses

To me it seems that most of the gyms now are riding the “bargain pricing” wave, trying to lure as many customers as they can and then at all costs. Now, here’s the deal: Whether I pay 2 bucks more a month for Pilates classes doesn’t really matter. But what matters is that I have at least one qualified coach that knows what he/she is doing.

We searched several months here in Hackney and only recently found a decent gym here in the area that my wife is now finally happy with, the London Fields Gym. They not only have courses for Pilates in Hackney but a lot more classes that might be worth checking out. We found their trainers excellent, highly qualified and superbly motivated! The rest of the staff is also super-friendly, you can see that they really value the folks coming in.

After so many disappointing experiences finding a place for Pilates classes in Hackney I can absolutely recommend these guys, so check them out!
