In Norway there are many very old churches made in stone and wood. Some of these are many hundred years old and are therefore classified as cultural heritage in need to be protected from damage including fire damage. Fires in churches has happened due to failures in old electrical installations and due to lightening stricking them, but the latest risk is arsonist igniting the churches from the outside on the facades.
It was for two old and very famous wooden churches located in Porsgrunn, decided that a fixed firefighting system was to be installed in them, however sadly the one church was subject to arson before it was protected. This raised a lot of focus on the other church, being the Vestre Porsgrunn Church, and the need for a robust, reliable and well tested system being able to perform both indoor as well as outdoor. VID Fire-Kill luckily had a solution for indoor and outdoor protection of such structures which matched all the criteria. A facade system for the outdoor protection and Model N-pipe and Model APS for the indoor protection.
