Cottsway, a West Oxfordshire-based social housing association, has specified C-TEC’s Hush Buttons for several sheltered blocks of flats.
The buttons were installed as part of the fire alarm upgrades within Cottsway’s sheltered blocks of flats, in response to complacency caused by false alarms.
Hush Buttons equip residents with the means to silence false alarms themselves, should they set the fire alarm off accidentally. This prevents unnecessary building evacuations, expensive fire service call outs, or a true fire alarm signal being ignored.
By eradicating false alarms, the buttons have restored resident confidence in the fire alarm system.
C-TEC’s Hush Buttons have been designed to work in conjunction with Apollo XP95 or Hochiki ESP analogue addressable fire alarm systems.
The buttons surpass the requirements of BS 5839 Part 6, the official code of practice for fire alarm systems in dwellings, by providing monitored fire detection, alarm and silencing facilities inside each individual apartment.
