Luxury Greek Resort Receives 5-Star Fire Protection

6 Apr 2021

A fault-tolerant network of Axis EN fire panels from Advanced has been installed at one of Crete’s newest and most exclusive beachfront hotels.

Based in the coastal town of Ierapetra in Crete, the Robinson Club is designed around ‘neighbourhoods’ of hotel rooms across a 150 acre-site. This unique layout meant that the fire system specified needed to deliver seamless detection and notification of a potential fire to the hotel’s staff and guests, who could be located anywhere across the 340 rooms and suites, multiple restaurants, spa facilities and conference rooms.

Responsible for the design, supply and installation of the fire detection, extinguishing system and firefighting equipment at the 5-star Robinson Club Ierapetra were Advanced partners, Zarifopoulos. In total, Zarifopoulos installed 14 of Advanced’s industry-leading Axis EN fire alarm control panels on a high-speed, fault-tolerant network alongside over 900 notification and detection devices including detectors, call points and sounders.

Spilios Alexopoulos, Commercial Director at Zarifopoulos, referring to the state of the art system as well as the special attention that has been paid to the fire protection of the luxurious  Robinson Club Ierapetra, commented: “Its widespread nature required a high-speed network of fire alarm control panels to ensure instant notification of a fire event. As a long-term partner of Advanced, we knew the company’s solutions offered the high levels of performance and reliability required, combined with ease of use and installation.”

Axis EN is EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 approved and its panels can be used in single-loop, single-panel format or easily configured into high-speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks covering huge areas. Advanced products’ ease of installation and configuration as well as the range of peripherals available make it customisable to almost any application.

Vladimir Zrnic, Regional Sales Manager for Southern Europe, said: “In large-scale sites, such as the Robinson Club, Ierapetra, it’s vital to ensure that the panels, when networked, will sustain adequate performance levels. As the number of panels and peripherals on a network increase, some systems can slow down dramatically, compromising safety and reliability.

“Advanced’s fire panel networks are widely regarded as some of the most robust and resilient in fire situations. Axis EN panels can be configured into networks of up to 200 panels in standard or fault-tolerant configurations, while sophisticated cause and effect and intuitive, easy programming of rules make implementation effortless.”

The Robinson Club Ierapetra resort opened in the summer of 2020 and is one of its German owner, TUI Group’s, largest investments in Greece. Designed with preservation of the natural environment in mind, the hotel offers a minimalist, high-end experience for its guests.

Advanced, owned by FTSE 100 company Halma PLC, protects a wide range of prestigious and high-profile sites across Southern Europe – from Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia and the Romanian National Library to Serbia’s University of Belgrade.

Halma is a global group of life-saving technology companies with a clear purpose to grow a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day.
