The headquarters of Bulgaria’s Communications Regulation Commission will be protected by fire systems from Advanced as part of a major refurbishment project and drive to reduce false alarms. Located in Sofia, the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) was established in 2002 as an independent state authority entrusted with the management and regulation of all electronic communications in Bulgaria.
A recent upgrade of the fire system in the Communications Regulation Commission office was undertaken by Advanced partner, FireTech Engineering Ltd. The project saw Advanced’s Axis EN system installed in the building supported by smoke detectors, and Advanced’s AlarmCalm false alarm management solution.
“We specified Axis EN as the brains and backbone of the system for the CRC building as we know it offers the highest levels of quality and reliability,” said Rossen Kolev, Managing Director for FireTech Engineering. “The client specified a system that would avoid false alarms and offer the option to expand or upgrade in the future, which is something we can guarantee with Axis EN and AlarmCalm.”
AlarmCalm is a free upgrade to Advanced software and firmware. It reportedly allows the false alarm management strategy for a site to be refined right down to points and to take account for resident needs and area usage. It includes the AlarmCalm loop device that allows residents or trained staff to indicate whether they believe a signal in their area is due to a false alarm. Axis EN is EN 54 2, 4 and 13 approved and its panels can be used in single loop, single panel format high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks. Axis EN also supports TouchControl, Advanced’s 10-inch HD touchscreen repeater and remote-control terminal that offers reporting and control via an interface that includes Active Maps and zone plans.
“The Communications Regulation Commission building in Sofia is the latest high-profile building in Bulgaria to be protected by Advanced panels,” concluded Etienne Ricoux, Advanced’s Head of Sales. “Our Axis EN panels lead the market and offer the performance, reliability and flexibility needed in a building such as this.”
