Health and Safety Innovation Award for Kentec
Kentec Electronics' next-gen 16L Taktis addressable fire panel was the recipient of the "Fire Innovation of the Year Award" at the UK's second National Safety and Health Excellence Awards in Birmingham this month.
The award celebrates products and services launched after January 2017 which demonstrate genuine innovation and are supported by independent fire testing.
Taktis 16L extends the manufacturer's standard Taktis fire panel to 16 detection loops and up to 144 zone indications.
Commenting on the news, Kevin Swann, Kentec managing director, said:
"We are thrilled that Taktis has been recognised with this prestigious award that is considered an important industry accolade.
“The Taktis 16L has been built with both the end user and installer in mind. As a truly Open Protocol panel it offers installers and their customers maximum flexibility in systems’ design, site-customisation and in the third-party devices that they specify.
“It also protects legacy installations, enabling the extension and replacement of Syncro network systems using the Taktis bridge functionality, as well as future investment since the panel is future proofed with a highly impressive road map of additional functions, features and integration possibilities.”
A spokesperson for the awards said judges were impressed by the scalability of the solution.
