Karl Danz of Carlisle based electrical contractors JJ Group (Contracting) Ltd said the system was the ideal replacement panel for updating care home fire systems, adding: “It [Taktis 2] not only has a huge internal battery capacity but its multi-protocol facility allows both Apollo and Hochiki addressable devices to work on one fire control panel.”

Kentec’s Taktis fire detection and alarm system combines the very latest in hardware and software to produce a control and indication system that is both powerful and sophisticated, yet simple to understand.

Available in 2-8 loop or 2-16 loop versions and certified to EN54-2 and EN54-4, Taktis is ideal for installation in larger buildings. Its capacity to be networked up to 128 panels and repeaters gives reassurance to all building owners/operators that they are in safe hands.

Not only does Kentec’s Taktis provide solutions to the most technically challenging applications in life safety, it delivers added value through ease of use, displaying clear information to ensure that when an event occurs appropriate action is taken swiftly.
