C-TEC life-safety equipment at health centre inspired by Prince Charles
Inspired by HRH Prince Charles, a new £5M integrated health centre in Burnley, includes the installation of C-TEC life-safety equipment.
The idea for a centre devoted to health, well-being and learning followed discussions between Lancashire County Council and Prince Charles at Clarence House in 2007.
The Fold was completed in 2011.
Installed in the main foyer:
- one of C-TEC’s innovative SigTEL disabled refuge controllers,
- connected to four hands-free outstations situated in the clearly marked refuge areas around the three-storey building.
- in an emergency, the system will enable two-way communication between rescue teams and disabled people waiting in the refuge areas
Said Ashley Holt of Amsec UK, the specialist company that completed the project: ’Demand for disabled refuge systems is at an all time high as the Building Regulations state that they should be installed in all new buildings with more than one storey.
’We specify C-TEC’s refuge equipment because it is cost-effective, easy-to-install and very user-friendly’.
C-TEC call system, Quantec
- used to facilitate communication throughout the centre which encompasses an extensive range of mental health, dental and family support clinics.
- each consultation room has been fitted with a call point to provide staff with reassurance that they can call for help should a difficult situation arise.
- Quantec also provides emergency call facilities in each of the disabled persons’ washrooms
