Xtralis VESDA-E smoke detectors and PRO E-PIR detectors win MTP Gold Medals

Xtralis has announced that the VESDA-E VEU aspirating smoke detector (ASD) and the ADPRO PRO-E 400H passive infrared (PIR) long-range detector have both won prestigious MTP Gold Medals, which are to be awarded at the SECUREX 2016 International Security Exhibition. The show runs from 25-28 April in Poznan, Poland.

The Miedzynarodowe Targi Poznanskie (MTP) Gold Medal is one of the most recognisable awards in the Polish and central European markets, and is given to innovative products of the highest quality.

Each year, nearly 500 products are entered into the competition and judged based upon innovation, functionality, design and total cost of ownership.

In 2016, the expert Judging Panel consisted of representatives from the University of Technology in Poznań, the Institute of Precision Mechanics (Warsaw), the Polish Chamber of Alarm Systems (PISA) and the Polish Association of Security and Security Management Engineers and Technicians (POLALARM).

Gold Medal winners are eligible for a Consumer’s Choice Award, which is open for voting to the public.

“We’re delighted to be awarded two prestigious MTP Gold Medals for Xtralis safety and security solutions,” commented Mick Goodfellow, vice-president of European Union and Middle East sales for Xtralis.

“These influential awards are a true validation of Xtralis’ innovation, quality and reliability in both life safety and security, and will help to raise awareness of our solutions in the central European markets,” added Goodfellow.

“VESDA-E VEU is clearly the new standard for smoke detection, while PRO-E PIRs deliver superior perimeter protection over the longest range. Customers need these safety and security solutions today. The Gold Medals are a mark of distinction which will help raise awareness about solution benefits for our customers.”

The VEU ASDs are the premium detectors of the VESDA-E range. They feature 15x greater sensitivity, an 80% increase in coverage and longer pipe runs versus VESDA – all at a 15% reduction in total cost of ownership.

In addition, VESDA-E detectors offer future-proof expandability, smoke analytics and “unprecedented” connectivity for remote monitoring and management. To learn more visit www.xtralis.com/VESDA-E

The ADPRO PRO E-400H PIR detector is the ‘flagship’ of the Xtralis PIR family. With a nominal range of 220 metres, the detector is designed for one-man installation and features sophisticated 3D-tamper (pan/tilt/move) protection, IP connectivity and wireless communication or even battery operation (in combination with renewable energy sources).

With these awards, in just a few years Xtralis has now won close to 50 honours from across the globe. Recently, the Xtralis IntrusionTrace video content analytic was named as a finalist in the Intelligent Solutions category of the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2016.

Only recently, Xtralis showcased its safety and security solutions, including VESDA-E VEU and ADPRO PIRs, at ISC West (which ran from from April 6-8 at the Sands Expo Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada).

Xtralis’ VESDA-E VEA smoke detectors to protect new IMG Worlds of Adventure indoor theme park

Xtralis’ VESDA-E aspirating smoke detectors have been selected to safeguard IMG Worlds of Adventure, the world’s largest indoor theme park which is due to open in Dubai.

VESDA-E VEA is badged as the only addressable detector on the market that delivers “assured detection” through active sampling, proactive self-supervision and auto-cleaning and which offers “the highest longevity with sustained sensitivity”.

The centralised detection architecture features up to 120 sampling points per detector, coupled with auto-supervision and cleaning, in turn lowering servicing times by up to 90% and decreasing total cost of ownership for the end user.

VEA will protect the entire facility, with over 50 detectors and over 2,000 sampling points. The detectors are going to provide constant early and reliable smoke detection to ensure absolute fire prevention.

State-of-the-art protection

Lennard Otto, CEO of IMG Worlds of Adventure, commented: “When we open to the public, IMG Worlds of Adventure will be an industry leader, not only in the provision of entertainment, but in all areas of operation, including guest security and protection. Ultimately, the safety of our guests is of the utmost priority. We’re delighted to partner with Xtralis in offering state-of-the art protection to ensure that our guests are offered the best and safest theme park experience possible.”

Samir Samhouri (chairman, CEO and president of Xtralis Group) responded: “IMG Worlds of Adventure is something of an architectural marvel. The fire detectors on site must ensure the best protection for visitors, personnel and the many valuable assets at the location with no operational disturbance.”

Samhouri continued: “VESDA-E VEA is transforming traditional smoke detection, delivering pinpoint addressability and unique assured detection with centralised testing and maintenance. It can now address all market segments and applications that traditional ASDs couldn’t address before.”

Layout of the site

IMG Worlds of Adventure will consist of four zones including global brands Cartoon Network and MARVEL and original concepts IMG Boulevard and the Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, plus 28 themed F&B concepts and 25 retail outlets.

The theme park will feature an array of adrenaline-pumping roller coasters, thrill rides and spine-tingling attractions as well as a 12-screen Novo Theatre. Set to become a must-visit international destination, IMG Worlds of Adventure will bring the best of family entertainment to Dubai’s growing leisure sector.

To offer this unprecedented entertainment experience, IMG Worlds of Adventure has partnered with over 20 blue-chip companies including Bose, Avaya, Pelco, Cisco, Microsoft and Xtralis.

As a multi-channel addressable system, the VEA detector is able to divide a protected space into sampling locations, enabling the localisation of potential sources of fire for faster incident response.

The detectors are ideal for the protection of areas facing challenges, and where the pinpoint location of fire events is essential. Detector testing and maintenance with VESDA-E VEA is both simple and unobtrusive, allowing service technicians to maintain the detectors without scaffolding or lift equipment.
