Kentec provides fire protection for National Maritime Museum

Published:  02 February, 2011

Kentec, fire detection
Comprehensive fire protection for the National Museums at Chatham is provided by a Kentec addressable fire-alarm panel supported by Hochiki devices.

The demanding fire-protection requirements of National Museums at Chatham have been met using a Kentec Syncro 4 loop analogue addressable fire-alarm panel to protect all areas of the building, with a repeater panel in the Orientation Gallery. This project was developed in partnership with the National Maritime Museum and the Imperial War Museum to create a new centre for world-class collections at the heart of the historic dockyard.

The fire-protection system protects all areas of the building and monitors the peripheral specialist detection system in the five repositories, which store priceless exhibits and collection of over 4000 ships’ models.

The Kentec system is supported by Hochiki’s open-protocol fire-data communications. There are over a hundred Hochiki devices, including automatic smoke/heat sensors, call points and based sounder beacons. Aspirating detection in the repository areas provide the earliest possible warning of a fire condition.
