Leading international trade fair for safety, security and fire protection industries, Intersec 2014, is set to feature a range of new product launches by international companies over the course of the exhibition in Dubai from January 19th to 21st.
Organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt is predicting that Intersec 2014 will break records with regards size and participation. With a 10% growth in overall size from last year, the exhibition is progressing steadily year on year and will reach the 1,000 exhibitor milestone in 2014 for the first time in its 15 year history. It is therefore also expected that the trade fair will gain an even more comprehensive regional footprint than previously.
“Intersec is acknowledged as the most effective business facilitator for the industry,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt. “As such, it is viewed as the best possible launch pad for exhibitors looking to introduce new products into the market. This converts positively for regional markets as it helps to ensure that the very latest technology is being deployed for the safety and security of people and assets.”
Intersec comprises four main focus areas: Commercial Security & Information Security; Safety & Health; Fire & Rescue and Homeland Security & Policing. International companies participating within the different product areas have planned product launches around the exhibition, hoping to take advantage of Intersec’s immense influencing power in the regional market.
Commercial Security & Information Security
Among those introducing innovative new products into the region include Remsdaq who will be displaying their revolutionary Entropad, an innovative proximity reader and access control system. The Entropad can be used as part of a security system to provide an integrated platform for access control, perimeter intrusion, CCTV and Video Management.
Also within the Commercial Security section, global security solutions provider GKB will be introducing its new high definition analogy 960H DVR for supporting ultra-high resolution analog cameras. Providing higher resolution images than a standard analog system, the analogy also helps to enhance recording quality and is an ideal solution to meet the needs of small and medium sized system integrators and security installers.
Also on the security camera front, Surveon will be showcasing their next generation 3 megapixel real time HDR cameras ideal for system installers looking to enhance their professional surveillance, particularly within banking, transportation, manufacturing, public utilities and city surveillance.
Casper Wu, the product manager at Surveon, said: “With its many advanced features, the new cameras easily stand out in the massive selection of IP cameras and give our partners the advanced technology and competitive edges in the market.”
Homeland Security & Policing
Scanna MSC, a UK based company specialised in the production of threat screening and detection systems will be showcasing their SCANWEDGE portable x-ray system. With applications in improvised explosive device disposal and specialist search operations, the SCANWEDGE technology is expected to prove popular amongst EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) teams from around the world. It is already used by the US Department of Defence and the UK Ministry of Defence.
Paul Taylor, Sales & Marketing Director at SCANNA, said: “The development of our products is important so that we continue to meet the needs of our customers and counter the latest threats. We are therefore pleased to announce the launch of a new version of SCANWEDGE with improved image resolution and deployability.”
Fire & Rescue/Safety & Health
There will also be a wealth of product launches within the Fire & Rescue and Safety & Health sections with exhibitors looking at spreading their footprint in the region and expanding their business opportunities.
Alfredo Grassi S.p.A will feature a range of safety clothing for fire and emergency services that utilise waterproof and breathable material. Meanwhile, flame retardant work wear which complied with the latest safety standards will be the main attraction for trade visitors to the Cofra stand.
Also within the Fire & Safety section, Safety Hi-Tech S.r.l. will introduce their LPCB approved inert gases based fire extinguishing systems, the expansion of the low pressure Centurion™ cylinders assemblies, a range of fire detection systems and a new version of Design Software to facilitate better design flexibility.
Gabrielo Indovino, IT & Electronics Division Manager at Safety Hi-Tech Srl in Italy, said: “Intersec will enhance our presence in the region, giving the opportunity to interact with current customers as well as exposure to new markets and new potential customers. It’s an exceptional opportunity to announce our new developments and introduce the new product range to the market.”
