RTV Slovenia, Ljubljana

RTV Slovenia, the public broadcasting institution based in Ljubljana produces a wide range of informative, educational and entertainment shows promoting the Slovenian way of life and encouraging cultural creativity.

Overview

Zarja Electronika are responsible for the ongoing maintenance of the fire detection system across all of RTV’s estate so were asked to supply and fit a building upgrade.

The upgraded buildings had to remain open and accessible at all times as RTV broadcasts around the clock. Zarja Electronika’s years of experience with this working situation and its familiarity with Apollo products meant that the installation team managed the challenges faced on-site with resourceful efficiency.

The Solution

In the latest upgrade almost 350 Apollo Soteria optical smoke and heat detectors were installed and controlled by two Zarja NJP-400A addressable panels, each with four loops, with a further 350 detectors to be installed at a later date.

From an original installation of 867 Apollo detectors, 87 manual call points and 10 interfaces, RTV now has more than 3800 addressable elements controlled by 19 fire control panels.

The Verdict

Boris Grivić, CEO, Zarja Electronika Commented:

"As with many multi-faceted buildings, false alarms are a major problem, causing unnecessary interference with day-to-day activities and requiring movement of large numbers of people. We reassured RTV that the innovative Soteria range would not only significantly reduce false alarm incidents but also satisfy their requirements for absolute reliability and an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
