Firexpo Seminar Theatre creates a forum for knowledge-bearing interaction

by maurisha

Firexpo has fast become the event of the year for industry professionals seeking fire safety products and services to help them remain compliant with stringent building regulations around occupant safety and wellbeing. Taking place with co-located Securex South Africa, A-OSH EXPO, and Facilities Management Expo at Gallagher Convention Centre from 11 to 13 June 2024, Firexpo’s is recognised for its ability to drive positive networking and knowledge-sharing.

Mark Anderson, Portfolio Director at Specialised Exhibitions — a division of Montgomery Group, explains that such is the success of the expo, that it was deemed timeous to afford Firexpo its own Seminar Theatre. Firexpo exhibitor — Carrier Fire and Security South Africa — stepped up to the plate and partnered with Firexpo to ensure an entertaining three days of trending topics for visitors.

All-round fire safety detection

Carrier will use the opportunity to launch its new Kidde Commercial EXCELLENCE-protocol 2X-A and 2X-AT panels. For easy migration, these intelligent addressable devices can be used in combination with Carrier’s legacy Aritech devices.

Based on the same 2X-A panel features and with full backwards compatibility, the new Kidde Commercial panels include an improved user interface on the 2X-AT variant, with a 7” colour touchscreen — a very useful feature for customers preferring an alternative to the 2X-A jog dial.

The Kidde Commercial 2X-A and 2X-AT panels, together with the EXCELLENCE Series detectors, modules, and manual call points, provide a complete intelligent fire detection system, incorporating leading-edge technology.

The benefits of the Kidde Commercial panels and EXCELLENCE Series devices include:

  • Cost effective installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance.
  • Reduced losses and casualties.
  • An expandable and upgradeable system as schedules allow.

The EXCELLENCE Series provides all the functionality of a large system, built into a system for small to mid-range applications.

Comprehensive seminar programme

The Firexpo Seminar Theatre programme, which is subject to change, includes:

  • Launch of Kidde Commercial EXCELLENCE Series product range.
