“This is an important year for KAC at Firex. It gives us an opportunity to show that we continue to drive the market after 40 years…,” said Mark Thomson, Marketing Development Manager.

KAC, the world’s largest call point manufacturer, is back at the International Firex on 16-19 May at the NEC in Birmingham, to outline key developments for fire systems integrators and installers.

The company, which is set to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012, already ships 2 million call points and AV devices every year to the biggest names in the fire industry, and has selected Firex (Stand K50) to showcase its newly expanded range of products to cater for specialist applications. This includes a new version of the field-proven MCP range of break glass, push button and resettable indoor call points, which conforms to the requirements of EN12101-9 for smoke vent control applications.

Other products within the specialist range include MED approved call points for marine environments and products that operate at 230VAC mains voltage. Visitors to the show will also be able to view the market leading IP67 sealed WCP, ideal for installation in harsh environments and for the first time at Firex, an ATEX approved Intrinsically Safe WCP.

As part of the company’s commitment to AV and the development of innovative products that benefit the installer, KAC will be launching a new modular range of addressable Audible Visual warning devices at the event. The range includes a common base across AV and detectors and the latest System Sensor digital Advanced Protocol, designed to reduce installation time and costs.

Mark Thomson, Marketing Development Manager, KAC, said: “This is an important year for KAC at Firex. It gives us an opportunity to show that we continue to drive the market after 40 years, expanding our product range and supporting businesses with product approvals and supply chain efficiencies, whilst making life easier for the installer. It’s been a difficult economic climate for all industries, let alone the fire industry, but the outlook is very encouraging.”
