The Centra Bank was formed in 1999 through the merger of two
finance companies and is part of the KBC Group. Its premises in
Antwerp are extensive, occupying six different buildings - one of
which is of historical significance.
The new fire detection system therefore needed to be flexible
enough to offer comprehensive protection in both modern and listed
building environments. The client also demanded a fire system to
meet Belgian (BOSEC) certification standards.
Limotec supplied a fire system that included more than 1000
Apollo devices, including over 900 XP95 multisensors and 87 manual
call points. For areas where hard wiring was not appropriate due to
the historic nature of the building fabric, XPander wireless fire
detectors were used
Each building has its own Limotec MD2400 control panel
(master/slave configuration) and any alerts are fed back to the
main security centre so that they can be investigated. The final
decision to evacuate rests with the security team.
