Ten Trinity Square
Ten Trinity Square is truly one of London’s landmark buildings, overlooking the river Thames at Tower Hill. It is a Grade II listed building, meaning it has been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architecture or Historic Interest. It was designed by the famous Sir Edwin Cooper almost a century ago and it was originally the headquarters of the Port of London Authority. After being a witness to historical moments throughout the decades (hosted the General Assembly of the United Nations) the building entered a new chapter and was developed into a modern hotel and luxurious private residential area. In 2012, the building was used as a set for the famous James Bond film: Skyfall. the building entered a new chapter and was developed into a modern hotel and luxurious private residential area.

Ten Trinity Square has a total of 100 hotel bedrooms, 41 private residences, a spa,
restaurants, bars and a club. The building restoration has been a meticulous process
where the main purpose was to preserve the details of the original building.
Installing a fire fighting system in the building had to be done in line with the preservation
philosophy. Danfoss is extremely proud of being selected the fire fighting supplier for
Ten Trinity Square. The entire building is protected with SEM-SAFE® high-pressure
Description of Risk
SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system from Danfoss Engineering worked
together to provide the prestigious Ten Trinity Square project with the right fire fighting
solution for the OH1 hazards. Is uses a wet system (12 wet section valves), pre-action
system (2 pre-action section valves), and deluge system (2 deluge section valves).
The technology behind SEM-SAFE® is genius. It uses water, which is completely safe
for people. Water is released at high-pressure through nozzles, creating a super-fine
mist that will cool and starve the fire of oxygen. It is activated immediately, only in
the areas where the fire is detected, ensuring best possible fire protection.
