Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of The Sky Plaza.

The Sky Plaza also has many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas.  Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:

  • Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
  • An installed sprinkler system from floors 11 – 34.
  • A wet riser system to be used by the fire brigade in a situation where they want to use their fire hoses on any level of your building.
  • Fire extinguishers and/or firefighting blankets throughout the building.
  • A firefighting lift/elevator for use by fire fighters to assist them to get quick access to all building floors to put out a fire and help residents leave the building.

In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks.
