GEMOS, an integrated building management system, was applied in Galeria Katowicka. The same solution is used at the National Stadium in Warsaw, the Ministry of Finance and in the National Bank of Poland.
GEMOS enables to manage a multitude of media, communication and security system installations regardless of the manufacturer. The software allows to integrate devices of fire alarm systems, access control systems, weather stations, burglar and assault alarm systems.
In case of Galeria Katowicka, it will be used as a fire safety system. One work station will supervise all fire protection installations in the mall. The network of the voice alarm and fire alarm systems, access control, CCTV, ventilation control systems, emergency doors and elevators can be managed through the station by only one person.
The system will integrate, monitor and control a large number of single installations and devices of fire safety. “The fire protection system in the mall will consist of 20 000 sprinklers, the safety curtains will have the total length of 2000 linear meters” – Daniel Muc, Strabag’s press spokesman for the project, said to katowicethecity.com during the last visit in the building.
GEMOS is used in several hundred locations in Poland, e.g. electrical plants, hospitals, hotels, airports and government buildings.
