Kentec protects the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel
Holidaymakers and partygoers visiting a new exclusive hotel on the Balearic Island of Ibiza can party and relax in safety as well as style, thanks to the very latest in fire detection solutions from Kentec Electronics and Apollo Fire Detectors.
The Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel completed the building of its new hotel wing, The Ushuaïa Tower, in May 2013. With breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea and Playa d’en Bossa beach, the eight-story hotel offers 181 indulgent rooms with state-of-the-art technology and luxury features, as well as two restaurants and conference facilities for up to 200 people. In addition to luxury accommodation, the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel complex is also famous for hosting open-air parties, attracting up to 5,000 people a night who flock to see the biggest DJs in the world, as well as a host of celebrity and VIP guests.
As part of the build, global fire detection manufacturers, Apollo and Kentec, were selected as the technology providers by Pitiusas de Seguridad, the company appointed to supply and commission the fire system for the new hotel wing.
In total, nearly 650 Apollo XP95 detectors were specified to meet the main fire detection requirements in the Ushuaïa Tower. The intelligent system was designed around two networked four-loop Kentec Syncro fire panels approved and certified to EN54 parts 2 and 4.
