GBE Fire & Security has selected Kentec’s fire alarm control panels for use in a newly built office and retail development, based on London’s Chancery Lane.
The new building, which accommodates the Publicis Group, incorporates office and retail space, with a landscaped courtyard leading from Chancery Lane.
The Cat A design will enable the building to achieve significant carbon reductions, compared to a typical speculative office development.
GBE Fire & Security designed and installed the building’s intelligent fire safety system. It comprises Kentec’s Syncro networked analogue addressable fire control panels with XP95 fire detection and audio visual warning devices
The system is supported by Apollo high integrity open protocol.
Designed to provide safety and reliability, Kentec’s flagship ‘open protocol’ Syncro series has been recognised as a powerful fire safety system, suitable for installation in large developments.
