Kentec helps protect the Archive of Serbia
Published: 9 September 2015 - Joe Bush
The newly restored Archive of Serbia in Belgrade, home to some of the country’s most valuable pre-1918 documents and archives, is being protected by a new fire safety system that includes a number of Kentec fire alarm control panels.
The Archive of Serbia, houses and protects documents and other archival materials produced by Serbian state bodies and organisations before 1918 - prior to Serbia becoming part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Within its 972 archives and 51 collections, the archive houses over ten kilometres of historical records.
The new fire safety system, designed and engineered by leading fire safety specialists TVI Belgrade, comprises a four loop Kentec Syncro Multi Loop Analogue Addressable fire control panel supported by Apollo open protocol communicating with more than 70 devices. Three Kentec Sigma XT+ ECU Coincidence Units control a three-area fire suppression system with more than 900kg of 3M Novec 1230.
