Kentec helps protect 'iconic' Saltdean Lido



An imaginative £5 million renovation scheme that’s breathing new life into the iconic Grade II listed landmark at Saltdean, Brighton, has Kentec fire control panels at the heart of a new safety system.
The lido, built in 1937-38 to designs by the architect Richard Jones, was hailed as the most innovative design of its type in Britain. With its tea terrace, sun deck, café, perched on the flat roof and distinctive curved wings at either end, it became the only lido to be featured in the Design Museum in London.

In 2010 plans were announced to partially demolish the complex and build flats. Following a three-and-a-half year fight by a local community group, Brighton and Hove council approved proposals to grant them a 60-year lease to restore and operate the pool.

The newly restored site, with the bulk of its £5 million plus cost coming from the Heritage Lottery Fund, will, when completed, include a heated swimming pool, children's pool, a gym, cafe/restaurant, meeting room space for community groups and businesses, plus a library.

Local specialists AM Fire & Security were commissioned by Brighton and Hove City Council’s Leisure Department to design and install a suitable fire system to cover all escape routes at the Grade II listed building.

The fire safety system solution is designed around a single-loop Kentec Syncro AS analogue addressable fire control panel with Hochiki devices and ESP open communications protocol. A Kentec Syncro View repeater panel, installed at a second entrance, gives both the building’s occupants access to the fire safety system. The system is future-proofed as the Kentec Syncro control panels are easy to expand and network, to become part of a much larger system.



Kentec on goal- Did you see us at FIM Leeds?


Last month saw the return of the bi-annual show FIM. This time around the show was held at Elland Road, Leeds United Football Ground on Wednesday 27th April. As most people are aware, FIM is a smaller trade show with an informal feel featuring manufacturers from the fire industry gathering to showcase their latest products.

Our Head of Sales for the UK, Wayne Marston and our Business Development Manager for the South West UK region, Kevin McCarthy attended the show on behalf of Kentec. Wayne and Kevin were given the chance to showcase the latest Syncro XT+ multi-area addressable extinguishant panel which was released last month as well as demonstrating our innovative Taktis product and featuring the classic Syncro AS and Sigma XT panels. It was a great opportunity for Kentec to see many familiar faces and catch up as well as meeting many new people, introducing them to Kentec’s products.

We would like to thank everyone who attended FIM and who came and spoke to Kentec on the day. It is a great event to attend to see what is new and upcoming within the fire industry. The next FIM will be held in the autumn in Birmingham so it will be great to see you there.
