Annual members at Elixia Røa Bad receives a personal Sentag wristband while day visitors are issued a wristband through the machine at the entrance after buying a ticket. This allow dayguests to enter the facility, use the lockers and all wristbands are collected through a wristband retention unit positioned at the exit.
Sentag Pool safety monitors three pool areas; a 25 metre pool, a therapy pool and a playpool with circulating water and is connected to external lights and sound, walki-talkies and video cameras.

“Referring to very high requirements of our client it was very important for FIMA as the main contractor of Minsk Water Park project to provide automated drowning detection solution of the highest standard. Implementing Sentag drowning detection system in one of the Europe’s largest complex projects was supposed to be a challenge, but it all went very smoothly. We were impressed with the simplicity of the system, installation and operation that proves its reliability and innovativeness.”
Mandarin Oriental Hotel London is located with a view of the Royal Park and Knightsbridge in the heart of London. With its high-profile guests all services are expected to be unimpeachable and that is extended to all suppliers including Sentag.
For this installation, equipment had to be custom-made to suite the high interior design standards especially for the exclusive stainless steel pool where the Sentag drowning detection system is installed.
At the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London the Sentag system is connected to the DECT phones in the security office which allows staff to be notified immediately if there is an incident in the pool area.
“Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group places the utmost importance on guest safety – particularly in hazardous environments such as swimming pools, where accidents can be very serious or even fatal.
For this reason we are deploying the Sentag drowning prevention technology as one layer of risk management at our swimming pools.
This system is easy to install, simple and effective to use – and is proving to be appreciated by our discerning guests and their families.”
