C-TEC’s CAST ZFP fire system at luxury apartment block in South Africa

  • 19 Sep 2023

C-TEC’s powerful CAST ZFP addressable fire system is protecting a magnificent residential development in South Africa’s Cape Town.

Owned by the Rawson Property Group and located in one of the most beautiful areas of the city, Newlands Peak is an ultra-modern 11 storey development featuring a restaurant, state-of-the-art fitness centre and rooftop deck with two heated swimming pools.

In a project supplied by C-TEC’s South* African distributor, Brigit Fire, a series of 8-loop CAST ZFP touchscreen-controlled fire systems were specified for the building by top consulting engineers, De Villiers & Moore, and installed by Manyene Holdings, the Cape Town-based specialist systems integrator.

Divan Lerm, of Brigit’s Detection and Special Risk Sales Department, says: “CAST was selected for its capacity to create a powerful high-quality system.

“As each panel can easily accommodate over 25 base sounder visual alarm devices per loop plus smoke, heat and multi-sensor devices, this meant that the client’s requirement to equip all 260 apartments with all-encompassing fire detection could be satisfied efficiently and cost-effectively.

“The ability to set the sensitivity thresholds on the smoke, heat and multi sensors to minimise false alarms via the programming tools was also hugely importantly to our client due to the multi-occupancy nature of the building. This is such an excellent feature.

“The project took place over a period of five months and we received invaluable sales and technical support from the C-TEC team throughout.”
