Keeping a watchful eye on new facility

Gas extinguishing fire safety panels from Kentec are playing an important role helping protect Specsavers’ new £12 million West Midland manufacturing and distribution centre. A new fire safety system, designed and installed by life safety systems specialists Leader Systems LLP, comprises Kentec K11031 M2 Sigma XT Automatic three zone Extinguishant Control Panels with Apollo conventional Series 65 devices plus conventional sounder/beacons and bells from Klaxon Signals.

This major new Specsavers’ facility at Kidderminster, Worcestershire will combine the company’s existing operations in the area, and will allow the company to double capacity with room to grow in the future. As part of the firm’s existing Kidderminster operations, Specsavers’ International Glazing Services business glazes customers’ frames with prescription lenses for stores in Northern European countries. The Lens Online business stocks and distributes lenses and contact lenses to stores in the UK and Ireland.
 
Kentec’s Sigma XT is designed to comply with the requirements of EN12094-1, EN54-2 & EN54-4.  It features 3 detection zones as standard, where any zone or any combination of zones can be configured to release the extinguishant gas and allows delay in first stage sounder and detection to be configured, with an instant release facility by using the manual release option. The Kentec Sigma XT is compatible with Intrinsically Safe barriers, which makes it ideal for use in hazardous areas.
 
Kentec, leaders in extinguishant technology since 1985, were the first company to introduce an EN12094-1:2003 compliant extinguishing panel and were able to apply the CE mark showing compliance with the Construction Products Directive to any type of fire control panel.
