Fire alarm panel protects animal hospital

An XFP analogue addressable fire panel, from C-Tec, has been installed at a new veterinary hospital in Glasgow city centre. Situated in the main entrance area, the one-loop LPCB-approved 16-zone panel provides protection for the facility. The panel is linked to an array of Apollo XP95 detectors that are located throughout the hospital.

A two-minute delay has been programmed into each panel. In the event of a call point being activated accidentally, it allows time to investigate the alarm before the panel goes into full alarm. This investigation period is essential in a medical environment, particularly during surgery times, when a false alarm would not be desirable.

Commenting on the project, Jim King of King Communications and Security, the installation company that completed the project, said: "C-TEC's XFP is ideal for this type of installation as the panel is powerful yet very easy-to-install. The two-minute delay is essential to avoid costly false alarms which could result in the unnecessary full-scale evacuation of the hospital and increase the likelihood of a true fire alarm being ignored"

One of C-TEC's NC951 disabled persons' toilet alarm has also been installed to provide the hospital's disabled washroom with alarm facilities to alert staff in the event of an emergency. An IP CCTV/Intruder alarm system is also in operation at the site.
