Bekonscot - Managing Director

For several years we went through numerous smoke generators to simulate a "burning building", an important feature in our presentation.  Although the effect produced was good, the reliability, servicing and running costs of the system were always a headache, with smoke machines sometimes lasting a few weeks before they failed.

In June 2000, on recommendation, we contacted Concept Smoke Systems regarding the smoke installation.  A ViCount system was installed and commissioned later that year and has been operating without failure ever since!! Smoke chemical consumption has fallen dramatically, serviceability has been 100% and the effect is as impressive as ever.  Minimising issues relating to maintenance, and maximising reliability has given all of our visitors (some 200,000 per year) the benefit of seeing the smoke effect.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend these systems to other users who need reliable and cost-effective smoke!
