C-TEC’s Hush Button Compatible With Hochiki & Apollo

C-TEC's Hush Button Compatible With Hochiki & Apollo

According to BS 5839 part 6 (the code of practice for fire alarm systems in dwellings) around 80% of all UK fire deaths and injuries occur in homes. Nowhere is the risk greater than in Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs) where a fire in one ‘dwelling’ can quickly spread to another.

Providing reliable and fully monitored fire detection, alarm and silencing facilities inside each individual apartment, C-TEC’s Hush Button solution puts the resident firmly in control of their own fire detection system. Basically the Hush Button functions as a miniature fire alarm – the resident can silence a false alarm themselves (for example should they set the alarm off accidentally by burning a meal) thus preventing false alarms, full-scale evacuations and the likelihood of a true alarm condition being ignored.

Says C-TEC’s MD, Andrew Foster: Now C-TEC’s Hush Button is compatible with Apollo XP95 and Hochiki ESP – the fire alarm industry’s leading analogue open protocols – I am certain it will become a great seller. Indeed I have no doubt that Hush Buttons will be fitted as standard in many Houses of Multiple Occupation in the not too distant future such are the benefits they offer the occupant”.

Maintaining your machinery

If your machinery isn’t maintained or checked, it may malfunction. If a malfunction occurs, the equipment may go awry, the equipment may overheat and subsequently cause a fire. Along with your machinery, your fire alarm systems and protection should regularly be maintained and checked, so as to ensure it will still adequately function in the case of a fire outbreak. So make sure your fire alarm system is regularly serviced and maintained!

Manufacturing Fire Safety Emergency Procedures

Fire drills where loud machinery and equipment are being operated, are often difficult to carry out. You will need the right alarm system that can be heard over these. However, drills must be carried at least once a year. All full time and temporary members of staff should be aware of the full evacuation process. If your staff are more experienced in fire procedures, the smoother the evacuation process! Additionally, staff need to understand how to use the fire protection equipment available. To get your staff confident with the use of the fire protection equipment, get them fire warden trained!
