Burgess Hill, Sussex, January 2014: Irish fast food chain Supermac’s has chosen Morley-IAS to provide comprehensive fire detection and alarm protection for its latest outlet in Clonmel, County Tipperary.

The recent two-storey outlet, which opened on 27th June 2013, also includes Papa John’s Pizza, Quiznos Subs and a Tim Horton’s Coffee and Bake Shop. The chosen fire detection and alarm system was designed and installed by long-established Morley-IAS distribution partner, Hall Alarms, also based in Clonmel, and incorporates the latest Morley-IAS DX Connexion panel.

The retail outlet also utilises a Morley-IAS Disabled Toilet alarm system and a Compact 5 Disabled Refuge System, helping Supermac’s meet some of the many regulatory requirements of a new building. “Specifically, the new DX Connexion panel offers the right scale of simple-to-use functionality for retail sites such as Supermac’s,” says Sean Duggan, general and technical manager, Hall Alarms. “In particular, its Cause & Effect functionality provides the perfect level of flexibility in managing both detection and controlled response to any fire-related incident.”
Jarlath Connolly, operations manager, Supermac’s says: “We have worked successfully with Hall Alarms for a number of years and have found that Morley-IAS equipment provides the robustness and flexibility we need in a busy and hardworking retail environment.”    

Supermac’s is Ireland’s largest and fastest-growing home-based fast food group. Founded in 1984 by Pat McDonagh and headquartered in County Galway, today it has a turnover of €82 million, operating 100+ stores across Ireland and Northern Ireland and employing more than 2,500 staff.
