C-TEC’s CAST XFP fire system scores at South Shields FC

  • 8 Mar 2023

C-TEC’s innovative CAST fire alarm system is now in operation at South Shield’s Football Club’s 1st Cloud Arena Stadium.

Established in 1888, the ‘Mariners’ are a leading light in the Northern Premier League and recently invested in a state-of-the-art 900-seater stand with executive boxes, function rooms and boardrooms in a move to upgrade facilities and generate additional revenue.

C-TEC’s super-intuitive and intrinsically EN54-13 compliant CAST system features a 2-loop CAST XFP addressable fire panel connected to CAST detectors, sounder VADs and call points to provide the ultimate in fire detection technology at the ground.

Matthew Jefferson, Sales Director of ACS Technologies, the North-East based specialist life-safety systems company, says: “CAST is powerful, cost-effective and perfect for projects like this. The system has all the key features you need such as easy-installation and none of the complicated ones you don’t which is exactly what we look for in a fire alarm system.

“We also like that C-TEC is a UK manufacturer and appreciate the excellent customer service provided by our account manager, Simon Griffiths, and the technical support team.”

Conceived and designed by C-TEC as part of a 10-year, multi-million-pound project, CAST is the world’s most-advanced ‘distributed intelligence’ fire alarm system protocol. 

CAST’s cutting-edge control panels, detection and alarm devices are all designed and manufactured at the company’s state-of-the-art UK manufacturing facility to guarantee that every single component integrates flawlessly to create systems that work perfectly – from a simple ‘one out, all out’ system to a sophisticated multi-panel networked system.

All CAST systems are also fully compatible with ENVISION, C-TEC’s powerful Cloud remote access, data management and system testing software.
