Twenty-two fire stations in Scotland have recently benefitted from C-TEC’s VdS-certified EN54-4 power supplies.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service called on Safe Services to install CSL DualCom fire units powered up by C-TEC’s bF360-24 power supplies to add remote monitoring to fire systems at its stations.
As a result of the remote monitoring, any faults are now reported to a 24-hour alarm-receiving centre to ensure additional protection at the sites located across the Scottish Borders, West and East Lothian.
Said Graeme Millar, Director at Safe Services, a Galashiels-based SP203-1 accredited company:
“As fire legislation in most European countries now states any power supply performing a mandatory function of a fire alarm system must comply with EN54-4/A2, C-TEC’s power supplies were the obvious choice for this project.”
C-TEC is a UK specialist of life-safety electronic systems including fire alarm control panels, detectors, call systems, disabled refuge systems, induction loop amplifiers and power supplies.
