C-TEC systems specified for mixed-use site

by Andy Clutton

C-TEC’s CAST and Hush Pro fire alarm systems are safeguarding a mixed-use building housing both business units and domestic dwellings in Llangollen, Wales. A combination of commercial and residential fire systems was required for the installation so Allied Fire & Escapes, installed a CAST XFP addressable fire systems to protect the ground floor retail units and interfaced it to three Hush Pro domestic fire systems to safeguard the residential dwellings on the first floor.

Said John Westerman, Director at Allied: “Each domestic dwelling is fitted with a Hush Pro controller connected to a series of Hush Pro smoke detectors, base sounders and heat detectors – all interfaced via Hush Pro’s CAST Landlord Interfaces – to the CAST XFP communal/landlord system.

“We specified Hush Pro as it offers higher levels of fire protection over the Grade D unmonitored battery alarm systems typically used in domestic installations. As a fully-monitored BS 5839-6 Grade C system, Hush Pro reports open and short circuit faults and operation faults back to the CAST fire panel and allows management and maintenance companies to remotely monitor the system. In the event of an emergency, Hush Pro relays information to the C-TEC CAST panel to notify building management.”
