Kentec raises a glass

22 February 2011

The oldest continuous glass-making business in the Netherlands, the O-I glass plant was established more than 150 years ago in Schiedam to meet demand for glass bottles from the hundreds of distilleries in the area

Today the plant remains a major producer for the glass container industry in the Netherlands and beyond.

At the heart of a recent upgrading of the fire detection and alarm system at the O-I glass plant are four Kentec analogue addressable fire alarm panels, one Kentec Syncro 2 loop and three Kentec Syncro AS Light (1 loop) alarm panels, chosen for their exceptional performance, reliability and seamless integration to systems of mixed devices.

The system is supported by Hochiki's open protocol fire data communications with over 182 Hochiki devices that include Automatic Smoke/Heat Sensors, Call Points, Wall Sounders and mains Interface I/O Modules.

The fire detection and alarm system upgrade was a joint project between supplier, designer and commissioning engineers Fireproducts & Solutions Netherlands and installer J.J. Hendriks & zn - both leading consulting engineers.
