Advanced Fire System Installed for IKEA Greece

10 Jul 2014

One of the largest retail developments in Greece, the IKEA store in Ioannina, has been protected by an industry-leading Axis EN fire system from Advanced.

Zaripoulos Security and Control Services, a long-time supplier of Advanced products, has recently completed a number of large-scale installations in Greece using Advanced products. The largest of these is the 18,000 square metre IKEA store, where the latest Axis EN system was fitted, which included almost 1,000 additional devices and peripherals from the UK manufacturer.

The intelligent Axis EN fire system, was selected after a detailed survey of the 18,000 square metre flagship store, which concluded that the cutting edge capabilities of the system and its simple, high performance networking offered the optimum solution for the installation.

Spilios Alexopoulos, spokesperson for Zaripoulos Security and Control Services, said: “This was a complex brief for a fire system that covers all areas of the store, monitored by a colour graphics software package. We chose Advanced products because they are renowned for quality and reliability, and could easily meet the technical requirements on this project. We also find them very good people to do business with excellent after-sales support.”

Mr Spilios added: “This new store marks a major investment by IKEA into the Greek market and a vote of confidence in the economy of this key regional centre. The need for a high-quality fire system was specified within the original design brief and this has now been delivered thanks to the efforts of Zaripoulos and Advanced. This system is not only fit for purpose, it can also be expanded and upgraded in the future, which is a major benefit in a building of this type.”

Axis is Advanced’s flagship fire systems range, which delivers fire systems approved to international and local standards worldwide including EN54 and UL864. Axis EN panels are available in 1-8 loop formats and can be easily configured into high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas. Axis EN includes a complete device and peripheral range, including wireless. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range make Axis systems customisable to almost any application and they are found in prestigious and challenging installations in over 60 countries.

Etienne Ricoux, territory sales manager for Advanced, said: “IKEA is one of the world’s most famous retailers and we’re very happy to add them to our long list of market-leading projects. Working with the construction contractors and the team at Zaripoulos it was clear that Axis EN was the optimum solution for this job. We were able to assemble a range of off-the-shelf components to meet the exact specifications of the project, saving lead time and cost.”
