Construction works on the luxurious Wynn Resorts Macau Hotels and Casino commenced in early 2005, and was slated to complete by end 2005, ready for opening by mid 2006. The high profile and prominent casino project with hotels and shopping mall attracted the attention of all major fire resistant ductwork players. Against such stiff competition, the Flamebar BW11 fire rated ducting system was approved by the consultants as it fulfilled the stringent requirements stipulated by the Macau authority and the casino and five-star hotel operators. Apart from compliance with BS476 Part 24, the system must be certificated by UL (Underwriters’ Laboratory).
Several thousand square meters of Flamebar BW11 fire resistant ducting were installed as smoke extractions and dual ventilation systems to provide fire safety for the building users. Due to the fast-track nature of construction, the system had to provide quick fabrication and easy installation. Flamebar BW11 system was also preferred by the mechanical contractor as it can be pre-fabricated off-site in ductwork and spray factory, with quality control checks carried out prior to delivery to site. The project consultants were impressed as safe and thorough inspections could be carried out at ground level in the spray factory.
The factory-applied Flamebar BW11 fire duct is quick and easy to install, unlike other alternative systems, which require most of the fabrication, cutting and fixing works to be carried out on site.
The success of Wynn Resorts again provides proof that the Flamebar BW11 system is ideally suited for large and sophisticated projects such as integrated casinos and 5-star hotels with attached retail malls.
