Keith Elves article prompts market response

You may recall back in October we published an article by our Fire Engineering Consultant Mr Keith Elves – ‘The Big Control Debate – Open Protocol Vs Closed Protocol’. This article has now prompted some responses from others in the market….

In case you missed it first time round, please click here for another chance to read the recently published full article.

Closed protocol will generally mean expensive after sales spares. In addition, some of the larger closed protocol systems effectively tie the buyer into an ongoing service and maintenance contract which is impossible to break without risking compliance – if only one provider is qualified to maintain the system, there is reduced scope to shop around in the future.
