Edition 45
February 2010

Another first from Kentec!

We are delighted to announce that the Syncro ASM has gained certification to the Maritime Equipment Directorate (MED). This is a significant addition to our steadily growing list of Marine approvals.

We believe that this is one of the first Fire Alarm panels to be certified as compliant to the MED and will enable us to further expand our Marine fire detection sales worldwide.

Success in Dubai

In January we exhibited at the Intersec 2010 Fire and Security exhibition in Dubai. Those who attended Intersec 2010 will no doubt agree that the exhibition was once again a great success.

This was the second time VES (Kentec’s US based subsidiary) had exhibited at Intersec and once again we were delighted with the levels of interest in our products which significantly exceeded our expectations.

During the exhibition, we presented our VES Fire Detection UL-listed, FM approved, product line including:

  • Elite networkable analogue-addressable fire systems including:
    • Annunciators
    • Sensors
    • Pull Stations
    • eMatrix Mimic Panel
    • GUIDE PC Graphics
  • VoiceAlert, Voice Evacuation System
  • Ancillary enclosure range including our Document enclosures

For further details on our UL FM range of products available from either VES or Kentec Directly please contact us.
