The Society wanted a simple, unobtrusive form of fire detection for the inside of the aircraft, with the control panel mounted remotely, alongside other fire detection equipment in the hangar. EMS Group's 5000 FirePoint wire-free analogue fire system was the perfect solution and easily met the requirements of the project. In contrast, a traditional solution using fire-rated cable would have been costly and difficult to install without altering the original interior of this historic aircraft. The system will be installed by EMS Group's local partner Global Fire Services.

5000 FirePoint smoke sensors are based on established industry designs, have no external aerials and have built-in battery packs with a typical 5-year life. System wide power management facilities and advanced in-device electronics ensures battery replacement can be scheduled within normal maintenance routines, reducing operational costs. The elimination of expensive fire-rated cable means that EMS Group's wire-free sensors can be typically installed in less than 10 minutes.
