Market leadership recognition for video smoke detection.

D-tec Video Smoke Detection Systems : 11 March, 2008  (Company News)
IMS research has recognised D-TEC's leading market position in the development and production of video based smoke detection systems.
Market leadership recognition for video smoke detection.
The latest research findings, published by IMS Research, have confirmed D-Tec's position as the global leader in the fast growing area of Video Smoke Detection (VSD), and the number one provider in key regional markets.

In the IMS Research report, entitled: 'World Market for Fire Detection and Suppression Products', D-Tec - part of AD Group - heads-up the Video Smoke Detection category with an impressive market share of 41.3%, based on IMS Research analysis of 2006 data, way ahead of its nearest rival on 24.5%.

D-Tec also leads the way in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) with a dominant 38.3% of the market for its VSD technology which is particularly effective in the early detection of smoke in lofty, voluminous, environments such as aircraft hangars, manufacturing plants, power stations, warehouses and building atriums.

Said Ian Moore, Managing Director, D-Tec: 'We are extremely pleased with the results of the IMS study, underlining as it does our status as the world's leading provider of Video Smoke Detection (VSD) solutions. This is a position we are confident of maintaining with the introduction our IP-based FireVu system with all the potential this offers for remote, off-site, monitoring and more recently the integration of our VSD technology directly into CCTV cameras.

'We have always had a strong export focus and, working with our partners in key markets, have now reached a position where more than 80% of our business is outside D-Tec's home market.'

Prestigious projects which are now protected by D-Tec's FM (Factory Mutual) approved VSD include the massive 600 metre wide Royal Airwing Hangar complex at the Dubai International Airport - the world's largest privately-owned aircraft hangar - and the Sydney Harbour Tunnel (SHT) where VSD has been retrofitted to CCTV cameras to protect the 90,000 vehicles which transit the tunnel every day.

James McManus, Research Analyst at IMS Research commented 'D-Tec has an impressive installed base for video based smoke detection and has proved that it is a real alternative to traditional fire detection technologies in a wide range of applications.'
