Video Smoke Detection supplier reaches fire excellence award finals

D-tec Video Smoke Detection Systems : 07 April, 2009  (New Product)
Smoke detection in tunnels using video equipment earned D-Tec a place in this year's Fire Excellence Awards associated with the Firex exhibition
Video Smoke Detection supplier reaches fire excellence award finals
D-Tec, part of AD Group - and a world leader in CCTV camera-based Video Smoke Detection (VSD) - announces that it is a finalist in the prestigious Fire Excellence Awards, run in conjunction with the International Firex and Fire & Rescue exhibitions.

The company has been shortlisted in the key Export Innovation category for its successful deployment of VSD, which analyses images to provide early warning of fire, in a growing number of tunnel projects worldwide. Applications of note undertaken by D-Tec and highlighted in its award submission include: the landmark Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, Italian road tunnels and the Sydney Harbour Tunnel.

Said Ian Moore, Managing Director of D-Tec: 'We are very pleased to have reached the final stage of the Fire Excellence Awards for our global tunnel projects. The confined nature of tunnels presents a uniquely challenging environment where fire safety is concerned. Factors such as the length of tunnels, the difficulty of access, and the higher heat release rate from fire, make any delay even more critical than in other scenarios. As a result, at D-Tec, we are seeing growing interest in the deployment of Video Smoke Detection with its proven ability to identify smoke rapidly (typically in seconds). There is also the added flexibility which comes with the availability of IP based solutions such as FireVu.'

The winners of the Fire Excellence Awards will be announced at a ceremony on the evening of Tuesday 12 May at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
