Early-warning smoke detection for Norwich Catholic cathedral

Published:  05 August, 2007

Norwich

An air-sampling smoke-detection system from Wagner UK’s popular Titanus range provides early-warning smoke detection for the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Norwich. Titanus ASD system were chosen for their ability to detect fires at a very early stage, often before smouldering is visible and smoke develops, providing the highest level of protection for this historic building.

The ASD solution was installed as part of a larger fire-system upgrade that was designed by building-services consulting engineers Wilson & Partners in association with English Heritage, which funded the works.
