Eaton was selected by the design and building company behind a trampoline arena to provide a bespoke mains lighting, emergency lighting and fire alarm solution. Black Circle Design, principal contractor and designer for the Go Air Trampoline Park in Cardiff, opted for an Eaton mains lighting solution that would enhance the aesthetic appeal and comfort of the interior while maximising energy efficiency. The company also delivered an emergency lighting scheme and fire alarm system to help the site owners protect the safety of staff and visitors, as well as guard the fabric of the building and its assets.

The 7,315m2 venue, formerly a warehouse, was extensively renovated and now houses 120 trampolines, six supersize foam pits and a dodge ball court.

Eaton specialists visited the warehouse at the outset to develop a mains lighting scheme in conjunction with the client’s design team. Eaton then produced and delivered 45 of its Linergy LEDs and recommended a separate emergency lighting scheme for the trampoline park.

Working in partnership with Black Circle Design, Eaton designed the fire alarm solution and supplied its two-wire fire system, BiWire Ultra which allows detectors, sounders and EN54-23 approved visual alarm devices (VADs) to all share the same zone wiring, which can reduce cabling and labour costs.

Lisa Entwistle-Evans, marketing director at Go Air, said: “The Go Air group is expanding rapidly across the UK and the plan is to open another five by November. Getting the trampoline parks up and running requires a multi-partnership approach, working against tight deadlines. The health and safety of our staff, customers and the premises is our main priority and Eaton’s fire alarm system and lighting solutions have been important in ensuring Wales’ biggest trampoline park has the protection it needs.”
