Kentec is committed to “open protocol” and believes that by working with and in collaboration with other technology manufacturers, we bring together the best products and technical solutions for installers and end users whilst offering the widest technology choices.  All backed with the confidence that compatibility is assured, and quality is never compromised.

Kentec panels are at the centre of the systems they manage, they are fully certified to EN54-2 and 4. In total, there are over 23 individual product standards for the components of a fire detection and alarm system, which together form a system e.g. EN54-7 for point type smoke detectors.

EN54-13 differs from the product standards in that it considers the ability of all the individual components to work together as a fire detection and alarm system. As such EN54-13 is intended to demonstrate the compatibility and connectability of components even if some components may not be defined by EN54 standards. Kentec achieves this with both Apollo & Hochiki protocols*.

Where products fall outside of this scope, Kentec and the technology partner carry out bi-lateral testing to an agreed regime and provide full test reports assuring compatibility is guaranteed.
