Kentec protects Dorset’s ‘iconic’ tower
A new fire safety system that’s designed to protect one of Dorset’s most iconic costal landmarks, and one of the country’s most coveted holiday lets is using Kentec’s sector leading fire safety control panel technology at its core.
Clavell Tower, a unique four storey circular tower overlooking one of the most striking bays on the Dorset coast, was dramatically saved from the crumbling cliff edge in 2008 before being fully restored and converted into one of the most coveted holiday lets in the country.
Following the Tower’s restoration Trustees, recognized the need to upgrade the building’s inadequate stand-alone battery powered smoke detectors/sounders, and provide up-to-date protection for such an historic landmark.
CSG Fire and Security Ltd. designed and installed a state-of-the-art system based around a Kentec Syncro 1 Loop fire control panel with a mix of Hyfire wireless system thermal detectors, wireless optical smoke detectors, and base sounder beacons, which avoided any disruption to the building’s historic fabric or damage to the decorative interior through the use of unsightly cables.
