Hochiki Europe are exhibiting at the Firex show at London Excel next week, from May 17 to 19. The European team will be demonstrating products, as well discussing what the future holds for fire system design, why the industry must think green and how customer insight is driving innovation at Hochiki.
Hochiki Europe will be at stand FI 1640 to demo the L@titude system, pictured. This latest model can operate in multiple languages, across all manner of applications – from schools and hospitals, city skyscrapers with thousands of office workers, apartment blocks and entertainment venues, cultural and commercial spaces as well as international ports, warehouses and logistics hubs. The system uses a touchscreen with a graphical user interface to display vital information. It is EN approved and recently DBI certified for the Danish market following its EN54 Part 13 BRE approval.
For those looking to their energy consumption, Hochiki will be providing live demonstrations of the power saving and environmentally friendly FIREscape+ combined emergency lighting and fire detection system. This features LED downlighters consuming only 0.1W once fully charged, the lower energy consumption directly correlates with lower CO2e emissions.
Hochiki products are in use at one of the UK’s largest offshore windfarms at Margate, critical as thoughts turn to how the UK can start to produce more of its own energy and rely less on foreign sources.
Hochiki’s next generation of hybrid wireless fire detection products, Ekho will also be on show. At the core of the system is the wireless Translator module, hard-wired to the fire alarm control panel loop and communicates continuously with the wireless devices. Wireless Expander modules are then used to extend the self-healing radio mesh network, increasing the reach and capacity of the overall system.
Hochiki’s Sales Director, Nathan Hudson said: “It is exciting to meet with our customers face to face and get back to live events. You cannot beat a live demo and I am looking forward to hearing what visitors think of the life safety technology we are bringing to the show, especially our FIREscape+, L@titude and Ekho ranges. I think this year’s event, for many reasons, really will be the best yet.
“I am immensely proud of our teams and how they have continued to develop and bring to market leading products as well as serve our customers over the last two years. There is a reason we have been trusted as the leader in fire detection for over 100 years, it is our people and their passion to ensure our customers get the best. I would like to extend an invite to all attendees to come and say hello at our stand at FIREX.”
