Taktis detection solution for £4.7m church

18 Apr 2018

Kentec Electronics Ltd., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of life safety systems, has had its highly acclaimed Taktis® fire detection and alarm technology chosen to help protect an iconic new £4.7 million flexible use community hub development for Scotland’s Dumfries Baptist Church.


The church for the 21st century in Dumfries, Scotland, is a £4.7 million community facility and will be a new home for the Dumfries Baptist Church’s congregation. The church had long outgrown the building where the congregation had met since 1873, so suitable land had to be secured and funds raised before this ambitious project could be realised.

The recently completed new building, a 2,000 m2 community hub, comprises a main church hall seating around 500 and conference facilities including full catering, youth facilities plus a full specification games hall and multi-use games area. A central full height ‘Avenue’ links all spaces, allowing light to flood the building, with rooms over two storeys offering flexible use of space options.

Such a busy, multi‐use facility demands a fire safety system of the highest pedigree, performance and reliability, which is why leading specialists JJ Group (Contracting) Ltd. opted for an open protocol L3 system built around the sophisticated features of the new Taktis Technology Platform, and comprising a Taktis two loop fire control panel connected to a range of Apollo addressable loop powered devices including multi sensor detectors, sounders and beacons.

Kentec’s Taktis fire detection and alarm system combines the very latest in hardware and software to produce a control and indication system that is both powerful and sophisticated, yet simple to understand. Available in 2‐8 loop or 2‐16 loop versions and certified to EN54‐2 and EN54‐4, Taktis is ideal for installation in larger buildings. Its capacity to be networked up to 128 panels and repeaters gives reassurance to all building owners/operators that they’re in safe hands. Not only does Kentec’s Taktis provide solutions to the most technically challenging applications in life safety, it delivers added value through ease of use, displaying clear information to ensure that when an event occurs appropriate action is taken swiftly.
