The highly reputable Taktis fire detection and alarm technology solution by Kentec has been adopted by a new luxury student accommodation development in the heart of historic Durham. Ernest Place is a complex of five and six bed apartments and studios situated ten minutes away from the city’s centre and its university.

Leading specialists MRM Solutions have opted for an open protocol system built around the new Taktis Technology Platform – a fire safety system comprising three 8 loop Taktis networked fire control panels, one in each accommodation block, plus a Vision repeater using Hochiki ESP protocol that is connected to primarily Hochiki smoke and sounder beacon bases (VADs).

Kentec’s Taktis fire detection and alarm system features the latest in hardware and software to produce a control and indication system that is powerful and sophisticated. Available in 2-8 loop or 2-16 loop versions, and certified to EN54-2 and EN54-4, Taktis is considered to be well suited for installation within larger buildings.
