Kentec protects Maidstone Studios and its stars

1 Feb 2019

A highly sophisticated Taktis panel from Kentec, a life safety control systems manufacturer, and installed by DPJ Fire and Security Ltd, is helping protect visitors, staff and actors at Maidstone Studios in Kent, one of the UK’s largest independent broadcasting facilities. 

Maidstone Studios provides state of the art studios, production offices, dressing rooms, green rooms, wardrobe and make-up space. It is home to some of the nation’s favourite shows including Take Me Out and Later… Live with Jools Holland. 

Steve Bidmead, Senior Project Manager at DPJ Fire and Security, says: “We met with the client and discussed their current fire alarm requirements and future plans. The Taktis panel from Kentec was an obvious choice, the customer is forward thinking and technology driven, and wanted a future-proofed solution,” he explains.

“The flexibility of Taktis is such that it can be re-configured to realise multiple control and indication applications. It offers excellent functionality, and the touch-screen full-colour 7” display provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. The studios also have a number of Kentec Syncro panels onsite covering various areas and the long-term plan is to network these to the new Taktis panel.

“Since being installed, there have been no issues and the customer is very happy with the solution,” Steve adds. “DPJ has built a lasting professional relationship with the customer, secured the maintenance contract and carried out various refurbishment works over the studio premises.”

Kevin Swann, Managing Director at Kentec, says Taktis offers a number of key benefits: “With its enhanced integration and capability to network up to 128 panels, Taktis is able to meet current and future needs of even the largest buildings, making it the perfect fit for Maidstone Studios.”
