Art Deco Hotel Montana in Lucerne, SwitzerlandAwarded the title “Swiss Hotel of the Year 2018/2019”, Art Deco Hotel Montana was opened in 1910 in a slightly elevated location in Lucerne. It can be reached via the hotel’s own cable car and offers an incredible panoramic view of Lake Lucerne. The four-star superior hotel receives around 25,000 guests annually and is known for its historic furnishings. In addition to the building’s long tradition, the hotel is also known for being an important cultural center in the city of Lucerne. For example, weekly jazz and blues jam sessions have been held for 20 years at the hotel’s own Louis Bar. With 15 Gault&Millau points, the hotel restaurant is also a renowned address. Here, star chef Johan Breedijk opened Kitchen Club, a unique open kitchen where guests are in direct contact with the chefs and gain insights into their work.
Hotel Montana is committed to optimally protecting its guests with the latest fire protection technology. Due to the continuous opening hours, Art Deco Hotel Montana requires a fire protection solution that can be continuously modernized without disrupting business operations. The hotel’s open kitchen puts special demands on fire protection. It requires fire detectors that can provide optimum protection for guests and staff in the harsh kitchen environment without causing false alarms. Besides the hotel, there are also a staff house and an associated hotel management school in the immediate vicinity that also need to be protected.
We always have guests, we are always fully booked, so we cannot afford interruptions.Hans-Jörg Bucheli – Head of Technology Hotel Montana
Hotel Montana is equipped with an AlgoRex fire control panel, 250 Sinteso fire detectors and 250 fire detectors from older generations. Thanks to forward and backward-compatible fire protection products from Siemens, partial modernizations can be carried out. For example, the latest Sinteso fire detectors with ASAtechnology™ are currently controlled by an older-generation control panel from AlgoRex. The fire detectors of individual hotel parts or floors are also from different generations and can be replaced at different times. In the kitchen, 25 Sinteso fire detectors with ASAtechnology are installed, which can reliably distinguish between real fires and deceptive phenomena caused by cooking. The fire control panel monitors the fire detectors of three different buildings and is located at the hotel reception, which is manned 24 hours a day.
The safer we are, the more open we can be.Johan Breedijk – Head chef at Hotel Montana
The flexible installation in stages allows for undisturbed, secure business operations and avoids unnecessary costs. State-of-the-art Sinteso fire detectors increase safety for guests, employees and property through reliable detection. The ASAtechnology used is extremely reliable in preventing false alarms caused by deceptive phenomena such as steam, which is essential for the protection of employees and guests.
Protection matters – a perfect place is a protected place
You know what matters to you, we know how you can protect it. Because when you're protecting what matters, every element of protection matters.
