Hochiki Safeguards National Trust At Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall
Both properties near Norwich are country houses on a grand scale, dating from the 17th Century, and a particular requirement of the National Trust's territorial fire officer was for discreet, low-profile detectors with a proven track record for error-free performance. Hochiki answered this need with their ESP fire products range which, together with their ESP protocol, is recognised internationally for overcoming the problem of false alarms through the combination of quality and reliability, while also ensuring the lowest cost of maintenance.
Both Blickling and Felbrigg are protected by BS5839-1-compliant Fire Detection and Alarm Systems installed by Defensor Fire Detection Limited and, in total, the systems comprise over 600 Hochiki ESP analogue addressable devices, including over 400 Hochiki ALG-E photoelectric smoke sensors (these sensors feature Hochiki's unique 'High Performance Optical Technology' which allows the sensor threshold level to be increased, thus extending sensitivity to a much wider range of combustible materials).
The reliability of these systems is synonymous with the Hochiki brand that includes the ESP digital communications protocol, incorporating ARM capability (Alarm Reduction Management), which, in conjunction with the Advanced MX4808 control panels, significantly minimises the potential for false or unwanted alarms.
According to the specifiers, their choice of Hochiki satisfied their commitment to high quality products that provide the best possible life protection for staff and public in these important historic buildings.
