Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd is delighted to have won the Fire Safety Product of the Year Award at the 2018 PSI (Professional Security Installer) Premier Awards for its innovative Apollo SOTERIA® Dimension fire detector range.

The awards winners are chosen by security installers and systems integrators voting for their favourite nominations via the PSI website. Apollo’s SOTERIA Dimension beat nine other nominated finalists.

“We are honoured that our SOTERIA Dimension range has been recognised by installers as their Fire Safety Product of the Year. This is tremendous recognition of the excellent relationships we have with our customers, we are grateful for their support and look forward to working closely with them on future developments,” commented Karl Westhead, Technical Director of Apollo Fire Detectors.

“Research and development is a major focus at Apollo and our test laboratory facilities play a crucial role in the success of our innovative fire detection systems. SOTERIA Dimension was developed by our specialist engineers in response to the demand from architects, system designers, specifiers and installers for a fire detection device suitable for the most aesthetically challenging commercial buildings and secure facilities,” continued Westhead.

SOTERIA Dimension was designed for easy maintenance and servicing, with features such as self-test capabilities and drift compensation warnings on dirty detectors – all attributes that assist installers and offer peace of mind to the end-user.

SOTERIA Dimension is the most recent addition to the SOTERIA family, reflecting Apollo’s ambition to deliver a real focus on innovation. Representing the most advanced developments in fire detection technology, SOTERIA Dimension uses new optical sensing technology in a ‘virtual sensing chamber’. The flush-fitting detector combines functionality with style and is designed to fit perfectly in locations with the most demanding aesthetic requirements. The entire SOTERIA Dimension range has surpassed the requirements of European Standards EN 54 Part 7 and EN 54 Part 17.

An additional variant to the range is SOTERIA Dimension Specialist, a detector that encompasses all the technology of the standard SOTERIA Dimension device, with the added features of an anti-ligature metal faceplate and tamper-resistant screws. These tough detectors have been tested and approved for anti-ligature certification to TS001, meeting the requirements of Ministry of Justice specification STD/E/SPEC/038. The result is a detector with greater resilience against interference or damage, making them the perfect choice for use in high-risk areas such as prisons, custodial suites and healthcare establishments.
