Labor Strauss Group – Better handling for fire brigades

The new MEP fire brigade key depot SD950 promises even better handling for fire brigades

The Labor Strauss Group is a leading European manufacturer of professional building security technology. In order to meet the current requirements of fire protection services and to provide fire brigades with even more convenient handling in an emergency, MEP Gefahrenmeldetechnik GmbH, a subsidiary of the Labor Strauss Group, has developed the SD950 key depot. In addition to a significantly larger interior with the same external dimensions, the key depot also scores with LED interior lighting and cleverly positioned status displays. www.laborstrauss.com

The new SD950 fire brigade key depot from MEP-Gefahrenmeldetechnik GmbH makes quick and non-violent removal of the theft- and copy-protected object keys an uncomplicated matter in the event of fire, because the new generation of MEP key depots offers more space than its predecessor, with the same external dimensions, in addition to LED interior lighting for orientation. Depending on the version, it can accommodate up to six monitored object keys, depending on the slot and variant of the console, also in excess length of up to 75 mm. Those who prefer even more convenient key removal can opt for the optional flex console, which swivels to the front when the key box is opened and thus makes the object keys available in the operator’s immediate radius of vision.

The MEP developers have elegantly integrated a status indicator into the door knob of the outer door, which is imperceptible when the door is not in use and flashes yellow when the outer door is unlocked or flashes red to indicate that the door has been tampered with. If the object keys have been improperly deposited despite audible and haptically perceptible engagement, this is signalled by means of an integrated buzzer and a two-colour status display which is visible when the outer door is open.

The heating system fitted as standard ensures that the outer door can be opened without hindrance even at low temperatures, and the temperature and humidity control also reduces condensation in the interior to a minimum.

The solid housing in polished V2A stainless steel finish is also convincing, because with its visually appealing construction with a firmly welded, integrated frame and a drill-protection-monitored outer door, it withstands any sabotage attempt both mechanically and electrically. In addition, unfavourable environmental influences do not stand a chance due to the high corrosion resistance. For free-standing applications in a key depot column or on/in walls with facade insulation, a sabotage-proof built-in frame with all-round drilling protection is installed.

All fire brigade lockings can be realised through different interior door variants. The SD950 key depot can be connected to fire alarm control panels of any manufacturer via the AD900-1 connection adapter.

A comprehensive range of accessories for a wide variety of applications, simple installation options and installation accessories included in the scope of delivery round off the convincing features of this successful product.

“Due to our close cooperation with fire brigades, we know the requirements in case of emergency”, explains Dipl.-Wirtschaftsing. (FH) Wolf-Dietrich Marschall, sales manager of MEP-Gefahrenmeldetechnik GmbH. The solid design and intelligent construction was also recognised at the FeuerTrutz Award: “We are pleased that the MEP fire brigade key depot SD950 was voted onto the shortlist in the area of “system technology fire protection” in the readers’ choice for the product of the year 2022″, says Wolf-Dietrich Marschall.
