Nittan fire detection protects UNESCO world heritage site

Nittan fire detection equipment has been installed at the UNESCO world heritage site Piazza del Duomo in Pisa, Italy as part of an integrated fire and security system. The devices have been installed in the Camposanto (cemetery), the cathedral, two museums and the administrative offices. There are 1000 zones and seven fire-detection control units. The fire-detection system has been integrated into a new security system that includes 150 CCTV cameras, a site-wide access-control system and intrusion detection. The ‘leaning’ Tower of Pisa is also on the site.

The system was designed by Nittan agent EL.MO Spa having been selected by Opera della Primaziale Pisana (OPA), a non-profit organisation which oversees the Piazza del Duomo. These historically significant sites and precious works of art require round-the-clock protection.

The EL.MO proposal met the requirements by using existing equipment where possible and seamlessly integrating new devices.

Nittan fire detection devices were specified for their reliability, compatibility with EL.MO’s FX series of analogue addressable control units and features such as a 360° OmniView LED indicator to provide clear and visible indication of a sensor’s operation from any angle.
