Apollo Fire Detector Ltd. to protect visitor & education centre at the National Memorial
Published on 6 February 2015
The Wing, the visitor and education centre being built at the National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne in Kent, will be protected by Apollo fire detection equipment.
The building, designed in the shape of the iconic Spitfire wing, will house the Scramble Experience, the Battle of Britain Trust’s new visitor attraction, and the Geoffrey Page Centre, which is designed to be used by schools.
Together, the two halves of The Wing will highlight the bravery and heroism of “the Few” who took part in the Battle of Britain almost 75 years ago.
As the result of collaboration between Apollo Fire Detectors, FFE and one of Apollo’s major distributers ADI Global, all the fire detection equipment was donated to the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust. The fire protection system, which includes a range of XP95 detectors and beam detectors from FFE was specified by, and is being installed and commissioned by, the award winning Kent based security company Red Alert Ltd.
Brian Warburton, Area Sales Manager Midlands and North West, at Apollo commented: “It is a pleasure for all of the companies involved to come together to support this memorial project and provide the best possible fire protection.”
The centre is currently under construction with the official opening planned for March 2015.
