Besides protecting the lives of visitors and staff, fire safety in historical buildings and museums is a matter of preserving invaluable architecture and artifacts. Historical buildings are of importance not only to professional historians, but also to people from all walks of life. The protection of our cultural heritage is a responsibility that we take very seriously – you can rely on our advanced fire safety offering.
In general, damage caused by fire or extinguishing agents can be repaired, although at a cost. In the case of historical buildings and museums, however, this is not always the case. One of numerous tragic examples is Weimar’s Duchess Anna Amalia Library, which was destroyed by fire in 2004 with an estimated damage of $90,000,000. In such cases, the true extent of the loss is far greater than just the cost of restoring the fabric of the building. Every artifact that is lost represents an irreplaceable, and therefore priceless, piece of cultural heritage. Our advanced offering provides the appropriate protection.
Heritage buildings and museums often contain a wide variety of rooms, from historical exhibition rooms with high ornate ceilings to small, confined spaces such as storage vaults. Adequate fire protection in these buildings is best achieved with systems that are optimized to meet the specific requirements of each room.
We have successfully equipped historical buildings and museums all over the world with fire safety systems tailored to their specific demands. Our solutions never fail to satisfy our customers – but see for yourself:
Our wireless fire detection system is an ideal, minimally invasive solution wherever the aesthetic value of rooms needs to be preserved. It is also perfectly suited for temporary installations e.g. at exhibitions. The high reliability of this technology is ensured by redundant communication paths and the utilization of multiple frequency bands.
