Bicycle lockers

: University encourages students and staff to use pedal power
American Bicycle Security Company Lockers

In order to accommodate changing needs, Gonzaga University, Spokane, Wash., started a major building campaign. During its rebuilding effort, it added 60 bicycle security lockers to its campus.

The lockers are from American Bicycle Security's 300 series. Model No. 302 accommodates two bikes in each locker, model No. 301P can house one bike and fit into a pie-shape group with other units, and model No. 301 can hold one bike and be installed up against a building or other structure.

Gonzaga chose the lockers because of their versatility. The lockers encourage campus residents to use bicycles, protect bikes from crime and inclement weather, and keep the landscape looking well-maintained. The lockers were shipped to the campus completely assembled.

The bicycle security program has been popular among students and staff. Prior to installing the lockers, the university relied on traditional bike racks. The lockers have reduced bike theft on campus, according to Stella Kent, the university's crime-prevention coordinator.

The lockers are available to staff and students free of charge and are rented on a first-come, first-serve basis. Administrators may charge a fee in the future. Plans are in place to add 20 more lockers to the campus in the next year in hopes of eventually doubling current capacity.

Smoke detection system

: Ensuring fire safety in campus buildings and residence halls
Siemens Building Technologies

The New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, protects 22 of its campus buildings with fire-alarm systems from Siemens-Cerberus and its predecessor companies, Cerberus Pyrotronics and Pyrotonics. All residence hall buildings are fully sprinklered and completely protected with early-warning smoke detectors. The oldest residence hall has two battery-powered detectors in every room, interfacing with a common Siemens Cerberus System 3 zone-type smoke detection system in hallways and stairwells. The System 3 activation notifies the campus police, who are available 24 hours a day. The newest building has addressable detectors in every room, interfaced with an audio base. A single-detector stimulus in a residence hall room wakes the students and transmits the signal to campus police.

If the stimulus continues and sprinklers are activated, or if a smoke detector is triggered in any common space, a general alarm condition requires the total evacuation of the building, and the multiplexed system immediately notifies campus police.

When tie-ins relay an alarm from a residence hall or any campus building to a panel on the campus command station, the signal arrives within three seconds, ensuring quick investigation of actual alarms. The campus has six MXLV, three IQ and six INS-equipped buildings. As older buildings are renovated, their conventional code-compliant systems are interfaced with the multiplexed MXL network.
