The recently restored Archive of Serbia is being protected by a new fire safety system, which includes a number of Kentec’s fire alarm control panels.
With over 950 archives and 51 collections, the Archive of Serbia accommodates an array of documents, which were produced by state bodies and organisations before the country became part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1918.
Based in Belgrade, the archive houses over 10 kilometers of important historical records, which are of utmost value to the country.
To protect its contents, a fire safety system was designed and engineered by TVI Belgrade; the system comprises a four loop Kentec Syncro Multi Loop Analogue Addressable fire control panel.
Supported by Apollo open protocol, the panel is able to communicate with over 70 devices.
An additional three Kentec Sigma XT+ ECU Coincidence Units were specified to control a three-area fire suppression system with more than 900kg of 3M Novec 1230.
From its UK base, Kentec is able to export equipment to over 80 countries. Its fire safety products were, thus, ideal for the international project.
