Recreational fire

November 2008 Fire & Safety

Bosch modular fire panel system installed in major Baltic recreation resort. The choice based on ease-of-use plus easy customisation and expandability.

A Bosch modular fire panel 5000 Series system has recently been installed at the Kolobrzeg sanatorium and recreational centre situated on the Parseta estuary in Poland, on the shores of the Baltic Sea.

The installation, which took 12 months to complete, covers two resorts: the ARKA and MEGA resorts located by the sea in the north-east of Poland’s Kolobrzeg district. The resorts provide facilities for recreation, rehabilitation and therapy for a range of medical conditions, as well as facilities for hosting conferences.

One of the major reasons for the site owners selecting Bosch was the 5000 Series system’s modularity, which allowed the system to be expanded loop-by-loop over an extended period. This allowed for easy installation within the large hotels level-by-level, enabling the hotels to be partially occupied with guests even as the installation was taking place.

Ease-of-use was another major reason for selecting the Bosch system, especially the touch-screen panel. The clear menu structure significantly reduces the training required for operating and maintenance personnel. The panel also offers a broad range of diagnostic information, eliminating the need for a laptop to perform diagnostics.

The 5000 Series system is also distinguished by being able to handle up to 32 loops with more than 4000 elements per control panel. This meant the whole system, which comprises 24 loops with approximately 1300 detectors covering both the ARKA and MEGA resorts, could be realised with a single control panel, significantly reducing the cost of the overall installation.

Moreover, the Modular fire panel 5000 Series interfaces with the Bosch voice alarm and evacuation system which the site owners also chose to install to provide full protection throughout the resort against fire and other emergency situations.
