Kentec portable fire alarm system on tour with Cirque du Soleil

  • 5 Apr 2016

Innovative wireless system, complete with Kentec fire alarm control panel, protects audiences in the Cirque du Soleil KOOZA big-top tent during world tour.

Cirque du Soleil is the world’s largest theatrical producer, and the shows have been seen by more than 100 million people in over 40 countries.

The KOOZA show is a traditional Circus Homage performed in a 3000 seater big-top tent.

Fire alarm protection

Wireless fire safety system, designed and installed by Fire Systems Ltd for the touring KOOZA show includes:

  • single loop Kentec Syncro AS analogue addressable fire alarm control panel
  • Hyfire devices including one translator and two expanders to control twenty two wireless sounder strobes
  • wireless manual call points with Argus protocol

The fire alarm system is interfaced to a Scope pager system that, on activation, first alerts on-site fire wardens and security staff via radio pagers. This allows any alarm to be investigated to determine its status, before triggering the audible fire alarm and evacuating the big top.
