Kentec safeguards new escalators at Kings Cross St. Pancras underground station

The recent opening of the Northern Ticket Hall at King's Cross St. Pancras Underground Station - the latest phase of a £800M redevelopment - includes 10 new escalators, installed to provide access to the Victoria and Piccadilly Tube lines from the ticket hall.

The installation of a fully developed Escalator Water Suppression System (EWSS), a bespoke system from Kentec Electronics Ltd., incorporates the latest developments in linear detection cable. The system is designed to give a greater degree of control over the sprinkler system as it allows sprinkler activation to be more localised, whilst providing a fire safe environment and minimising service disruption from false alarms.

In this latest version of the King's Cross EWSS, Kentec has played a principal role in integrating the Listec linear heat detection interface to an addressable control system for ease of configurability.

This reliable and robust Kentec control system has been used extensively in London Underground stations including Moorgate, Bank, Embankment, Holborn, Bond Street, St Pauls and Shepherds Bush.
