Safely protecting visitors and staff, historic architecture, valuable sets and musical instruments from fire: TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors have been doing exactly that for over seven years as part of an effective and subtle way at Castle Theatre in Celle, a town in Germany’s Lower Saxony region. The horseshoe-shaped auditorium was modelled on Italian 17th century stages while fire engineering behind the scenes meets contemporary standards.
One significant advantage of TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors compared with conventional smoke detectors is that they can be aesthetically integrated into the architecture without onlookers noticing they are even there. Consequently, low-noise air sampling smoke detectors influence neither the visual nor acoustic properties of this glamorous baroque theatre.
Highly sensitive air sampling smoke detectors continuously take air samples from the ambient air which are then supplied to a sensitive detector module within the air sampling smoke detector. Optical scattered light smoke detectors then analyse the air samples for tiny smoke particles. This enables the earliest possible fire detection and safeguards action can be taken to combat the fire in due time. The system simultaneously provides reliable, very high levels of immunity against false alarms. Thanks to the use of TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors we can protect irreplaceable historic and cultural assets as well as human life.
