Legrand has seen its Synergy wiring devices installed in the new Newcastle International Airport Hotel on the basis the selected products stood out as “the best looking and most stylish available”.
The new build project, which is being built with the intention of being a four star deluxe destination, will be run by one of the world’s leading hotel operators when complete. As a result, the main contractor, Shepherd Engineering (SES), was determined to specify only the best electrical fixtures and systems.
Mark Gibson, a senior engineer at SES, said: “The developer wants a hotel that meets the very highest standards and so our aim was to specify fixtures and fittings that lived up to these expectations.
“Legrand’s Synergy matt black products easily stood out as being the best looking and most stylish wiring devices available. Add to that their clip on plates and screw-less installation and the decision to go with them was easy.”
Specified for use in all 180-bedrooms and public areas, with the exception of the bar which used polished brass finishes, this is the first order for Legrand’s matt black Synergy finishes. Designed to create a real impact in any interior, they – along with the polished black nickel finishes that were launched at the same time – are available on all of Synergy’s Modern accessories.
In addition to the matt black products, standard white Synergy Modern wiring devices were used in all back of house areas, while metal clad products were used in the cark park and service areas. A selection of cable management products, including tray, trunking and ladder, was also specified.
Nigel Pickering, Legrand’s area sales manager responsible for securing the order, said: “It’s always rewarding to have your product specified for a style conscious installation, but to have it chosen for being the most stylish available is a real bonus – especially as our Synergy range was launched with the intention of elevating wiring devices into must-have style accessories.”
With a 19 per cent share of the world wiring device market, virtually one in every five switches in the world today is a Legrand product. To find out more visit www.legrand.co.uk or call 0845 605 4333.
