If the building’s colour scheme has to be implemented in full, or if you want to match existing colours, the solution is a special coat of paint for the detectors.
"We offer to paint detectors in precisely the colour that the customer wants, and the delivery time is relatively short. All we need is the number and finish of the colour (RAL and NCS) or a colour sample from the ceiling or wall.
The painting is undertaken at a professional painting shop, and initially the customer receives a single colour sample (painted detector) so that he can check and approve the colour. The whole order is then painted and will usually be ready within 14 days.
The latest examples of buildings with painted sensors include the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lundtofte.
"The building was designed by the C.F. Møller firm of architects, and our assignment was to make sure that the ceiling installations matched the black ceiling," explains senior fitter Jens Jørgen Olsen from the electrical installation company Lindpro A/S in Glostrup.
"The detectors were installed on two floors, and there is in general a high level of satisfaction with the result. Thanks to the short delivery time, the painting process didn’t cause any delays to the schedule," says Jens Jørgen Olsen.
Blue, green and red detectors
Servodan has also painted large batches of detectors in colours to match the architecture of a number of older buildings.
If the customer does not quote a standard colour code, we CANNOT guarantee to produce the same colour for a repeat order. The customer should therefore buy extra units for any subsequent replacement.
