Southend Shopping Centre ready for the Christmas rush and the 21st Century
Victoria Plaza Shopping Centre in Southend on Sea underwent an extensive modernisation and refurbishment program during November and December 2007. Firetec Ltd was awarded the project to upgrade and update the Sprinkler Protection System.
The Specification called for full monitoring of the Sprinkler Protection System throughout the Shopping Centre and this included individual monitoring of all associated equipment connected to the Sprinkler Protection System itself, which included the monitoring of all Valves, Flow Switches, Pump Status and Tank in fill indications. Firetec Ltd, one of the UK’s Leading Independent Sprinkler System Protection Companies, chose Kentec Electronics Ltd and Hochiki Europe to meet the exacting needs of the Specification.
Paul Nightingale Project Manager for Firetec Ltd Commented that he chose Kentec Electronics Ltd as the Specification called for an engineered solution and this could only be provided by a company such as Kentec Electronics Ltd due to its’ hands-on approach from its skilled Sales Team and Special Engineering Department to see the project through to a successful completion.
Paul Nightingale also went on to add:
‘The project had exacting time scales and all our works had to be completed within budget and on time ready for the Christmas rush – only Kentec Electronics Ltd could provide this level of service. Kentec Electronics Ltd did not just sell a product like most companies but worked with us to completion ensuring our Customer 100% satisfaction.’
Working in partnership with Firetec Ltd and Kentec Sales Department, Kentec Electronics Special Engineering Department designed a tailored engineered solution using the successful Kentec Syncro Analogue Addressable Technology and incorporated Kentec Electronics Syncro I/O 16 Channel Input/Output Boards, and by using the flexible easy to use Cause Effect Program to Indicate the Status of all ancillary equipment connected to the Sprinkler Protection System. This culminated in a Sprinkler Indicating Panel with over 580 separate LED indications!!!! These indicate the status of all connected ancillaries throughout the shopping centre.
This once again proves how versatile Kentec Syncro Analogue Addressable Technology can be used outside of the realms of standard possibilities.
