Tesco UK Headquarters protected by Kentec and Hochiki

Tesco is the UK's number one food retailer, the world's largest online grocer, and a multi-national organization with over 600 stores in the UK.

The UK administrative headquarters are located between Cheshunt and Welwyn Garden City. At Tesco's Administrative Centre at the Cirrus Buildings, Welwyn Garden City, Kentec is the supplier of the fire detection control panels, specified together with Hochiki Europe's detection devices - the preferred technology within the Tesco Group.

The Kentec Syncro solution comprises a 6 loop panel in one cabinet with integral printer in the main building and a separate, networked, 4 loop panel in the second building, these panels monitor approximately 400 Hochiki devices, including sensors, beam detectors, zone monitors and call-points.

Maintenance costs are a continuing and significant consideration in the organisation's system design evaluations. Tesco recognizes the important advantages of the Kentec and Hochiki "open-protocol" offering, as it provides an open choice on system design, installation and maintenance. There is also the flexibility to grant the user freedom and security as it reduces the risks of over-dependency on any one supplier.
