INNOVATIVE fire detectors have been chosen to protect students and lecturers at a university.

Apollo Fire Detectors, based in Havant, was asked by the University of Hertfordshire to install its new Soteria range of detectors.

The university is working to improve its facilities and Apollo’s fire detectors are part of the plans.

John Griffith, head of building surveying at the university, said: ‘We were looking for a technologically-advanced fire detection system to protect buildings which are used for a variety of activities, including lecture theatres and offices.

‘I had worked with Apollo products when I managed installations in the past and was confident in the new Soteria range as being very well suited for protecting multi-use buildings like the ones we were refitting.’

The work saw more than 680 devices installed across four buildings.
