Today: Hekatron Brandschutz – Virtual tour through a fire prevention lab
We would like to share a remarkable VR-Sales case, initiated by Hekatron Brandschutz, one of the market leaders when it comes to fire and security products. Hekatron Brandschutz is the perfect example on how consistency and innovation can go hand in hand. In 1963 the company designed and manufactured Europe’s first scattered light optical Smoke Detector.
Manufacturer Hekatron Brandschutz stands for high quality made in Germany. While a long history of reliable work and their reputation is one strong pillar of their business, transparency and customer focus are key when it comes to innovative marketing and brand strategies.
For the company, Virtual Reality is the perfect medium to tell their story and to appreciate client’s faith in the brand by “inviting them in” to take a look behind the scenes.
“In our modern testing laboratory for fire protection (ELBA) in Sulzburg, we are constantly working on innovative solutions to make fire protection even better, even safer, even more 'hekatronic' in the future. With VR applications, interested persons can now thoroughly explore our testing laboratory and obtain comprehensive information. This builds up trust and is of immense importance especially for products that assure security. The competence of the Feynsinn experts has convinced us, we are thrilled with the VR experience."
- Oliver Conrad, Hekatron Head of Corporate Communications
Hekatron Brandschutz knows that today more than ever, consumers want to know the behind-the-scenes story and the reliability of the products they are buying. The manufacturer therefore has implemented a VR experience. With an interactive 360° round tour through ELBA, existing and potential clients of Hekatron can now across all platforms experience unique insights and inform themselves on the company’s quality processes.
The project has been managed and implemented by Agency Feynsinn*, specialists in enabling enterprises on the road to digitization.
