The project in brief

The Cathedral Museum of The Mother of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia is a museum located in Vagharshapat, Armenia.

The museum is home to a collection of Armenian spiritual and cultural objects and relics. Many of the pieces has been brought to the museum from different Armenian churches and monasteries. The museum also houses valuable pieces donated to the Armenian church from private collections.

To protect these valuable and important pieces the gentlest way in case of fire VID Fire-Kill was asked to provide the fire protection.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

  • Water mist solution was chosen due to the minimal damage to the valuable pieces in case of a fire,
  • Low pressure was chosen due to low power consumption,
  • Low pressure was chosen due to simple installation,
  • Small dimensioned pipes ensure less damage to the building.
