Kentec chosen for prestigious central Durham development
A dazzling new luxury student accommodation development in the heart of historic Durham is the perfect location for Kentec’s highly acclaimed Taktis fire detection and alarm technology.
Ernest Place, just 10 minutes away from the city’s vibrant centre and the university’s Durham city location, is a complex of 5 and 6 bed apartments and studios boasting deluxe features such as a gym, sauna and on-site cinema, and delivering a modern student lifestyle that is described as University student living at its’ finest!
Such a prestige development demands a fire safety system of the highest pedigree, performance and reliability, which is why leading specialists MRM Solutions opted for an open protocol system built around the sophisticated features of the new Taktis Technology Platform.
A fire safety system comprising three 8 loop Taktis networked fire control panels, one in each accommodation block, plus a Vision repeater using Hochiki ESP protocol is connected to mainly Hochiki smoke and sounder beacon bases (VAD’s).
Kentec’s Taktis fire detection and alarm system combines the very latest in hardware and software to produce a control and indication system that is both powerful and sophisticated, yet simple to understand. Available in 2-8 loop or 2-16 loop versions and certified to EN54-2 and EN54-4, Taktis is ideal for installation in larger buildings. Its capacity to be networked up to 128 panels and repeaters gives reassurance to all building owners/operators that they’re in safe hands.
Not only does Kentec’s Taktis provide solutions to the most technically challenging applications in life safety, it delivers added value through ease of use, displaying clear information to ensure that when an event occurs appropriate action is taken swiftly.
