Fire and Gas Suppression System from Advanced Protects Leading Bulgarian Bank
Intelligent fire and gas suppression systems from global leader Advanced, have been chosen to protect the flagship branch of DSK, one of Bulgaria’s leading banks.
DSK was founded in 1951, privatised in 2003 and has since grown to be one of the largest banking groups in Bulgaria, winning several awards for its services and reliability.
Following a refurbishment and upgrade of the flagship branch in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia, long-time Advanced partner, FireTech Engineering Ltd, specified a new system that included Advanced’s Axis EN (EN54) fire system, three ExGo suppression control panels and an IP Gateway, for remote internet control and monitoring.
Stoyan Grozdanov, spokesperson for FireTech Engineering Ltd, said: “We selected an Advanced system as Axis EN and ExGo set the industry benchmarks for fire alarm and extinguishant release. The panels are very reliable and, due to the importance of this particular branch, we needed a high level of protection and reliability, with assurance against false alarms and an intuitive interface for programming and monitoring.”
Axis EN is EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 approved and can be used in single-loop, single-panel format or easily configured into high-speed, multi-loop, 200-node networks covering huge areas. Its ease of installation and configuration, wide range of peripherals and wired and wireless devices make it customisable to almost any application.
ExGo extinguishing control panels have been developed to protect sensitive and strategic assets such as server rooms, data centres, control rooms and historic and cultural collections. It is suitable for almost all single-flooding area applications and includes a range of control options and devices. It is approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 as well as EN12094-1 and is among the first systems to combine these with EN12094 in a single solution. (EN12094-3 relates to the integrated manual release on the front of the panel). ExGo can be integrated into Advanced’s Axis EN fire system or any third-party alarm system.
Vladimir Zrnic, Regional Sales Manager for Southern Europe at Advanced, said: “DSK Bank in Sofia is a fantastic example of a high-profile financial institution protected by Advanced and is the result of our product leadership and the expertise of our partners.”
