The famous masterpiece “Sagrada Familia” choose Vingtor-Stentofon

Spains most vsited monument 

Zenitel can announce that they have a new impressive merit added to our portfolio of Vingtor-Stentofon references. The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagra Familia has chosen to use Vingtor-Stentofon for its new security communication system. The church is a Roman Catholic basilica in Barcelona, Spain. It is one of Spain’s most visited monuments, with a construction started in 1882 that is expected to be finished before 2026. The Catalan Antoni Gaudí y Cornet is one of the church architects.

The reason of choosing Vingtor-Stentofon

The Security Responsible of the Basílica de la Sagrada Familia, Xavier Edo, explains that they choose Vingtor-Stentofon Alphacom for their project because of its audio quality, technology and design, as well as its wide integrability to other security systems, resulting in real future-proof equipment.

The security communication system

The Basílica de la Sagrada Familia’s new security communication relies on an IP intercom system. This system gives service to a number of video-intercom substations located throughout the tour of its towers. This makes it possible to call the main control station in case of an emergency situation. The Control Room Master station has 48 Direct Access Key units that provide an easy management of incoming calls and immediate individual, group or general calls to all the substations as needed. There has also been installed a redundant audio server that will ensure full availability in case of error in the main system. Initially there have been installed 17 substations, but as the work progress the installation will be extended up to 40. 

144 years of construction

Gaudí became involved in the building of the church in 1883 and he made it to his architectural and engineering style, combined with Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. He died in 1926, after living a life devoted to the project. The anticipated completion date is 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death. The construction of Sagrada Familia relied on private donations that made the progress slow. The work was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War and resumed intermittent progress in the 1950s. In 2010 the construction passed the midpoint with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining. Zenitel is honored to be a part of a masterpiece such as Sagrada Familia.
