Case Study: Schlosstheater Celle

Fire Protection from WAGNER Protects Historical Schlosstheater

TITANUS® aspirating smoke detectors from WAGNER have been protecting the Schlosstheater Celle from fire and fire consequences since 2012 by means of inconspicuous but highly effective fire detection.

Protecting visitors and staff, historic architecture, valuable stage sets and musical instruments safely from flames: TITANUS® aspirating smoke detectors have been performing this task since 2012 after a two-year restoration break in the Schlosstheater Celle, a district town in Lower Saxony.

The project had to reconcile the sophisticated architecture with effective fire protection without compromising the listed building. While the horseshoe-shaped auditorium was built in the 17th century according to the model of Italian stages, the fire protection technology behind the scenes, on the other hand, was to be ultra-modern and safe.

The Schlosstheater Celle is located in the state apartments of the baroque Celle Castle. Founded in 1674, it is today one of the oldest, regularly performed theaters in Europe with a permanent ensemble.

Earliest Smoke Detection Behind the Scenes

Risk Analysis

  • False alarms
    Props are used on the stage of the theater that could trigger a false alarm if detected as a disturbance.
  • Electrical components
    Defective electrical systems, equipment and props, such as lighting equipment, etc., can be possible sources of ignition.
  • Decorative construction
    The interior of the theater consists mainly of wooden materials and textiles that are easily inflammable.

Protection objectives

  • Personnel protection
    Employees and visitors not familiar with the location must be protected from fire at all times.
  • Protection of the archite
    The baroque architecture must be protected against fire and damage caused by fire.
  • Property protection
    Valuable stage sets and musical instruments must be safely protected against fire and consequential damage caused by fire.

Aesthetic appeal unaffected

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.
