Life-critical control systems manufacturer, Kentec, has celebrated the third anniversary of its Kentec Installation Programme (KIP) at this year’s FIREX, now with more than 200 installers registered across 19 countries.

Since its launch at Firex three years ago, installers have been benefiting from the scheme which include training to ensure every installation is optimised to realise the technology’s full potential. The scheme also provides KIP-dedicated technical support (including on-site), and advanced access to the latest Kentec systems and software.

Kevin Swann, Managing Director of Kentec Electronics, said: “In addition to training and support, our KIPs tell us that their membership supports client tenders by demonstrating individual competency on the award-winning Taktis panel and ever-loved Syncro AS, which is fantastic to hear.

“Covid-19 hit while the scheme was still in its infancy, which forced us to look to ways to make virtual training as impactful as possible. That’s opened the doors to so many efficiencies and opportunities – and has helped build the scheme into one that we are very proud of,” he adds. “The team and I are looking forward to speaking to customers and taking them through the highlights of our stand, at what promises to be another fantastic industry event.”

Kentec’s latest wireless Mesh technology was a leading focus on its FIREX stand this year. The team demonstrated how it reduces installation costs and timescales and removes the installation and construction limitations associated with wired systems, including building work, fire stopping and containment systems.
