C-TEC has launched its own range of conventional smoke and heat detectors.
Branded ‘Activ’, the conventional detectors have been third-party certified to the relevant parts of EN54 parts 5, 7 and pr29 by leading notified approval body, Intertek, and are available to purchase today.
Daniel Griffin, Intertek’s Senior Business Development Director, presented C-TEC Directors Andrew Foster and Andy Scott with the official approval certificates at Firex International where the detectors were not only on display but featured on a breathtaking 3.5 metre wide videowall presentation (highlights of which can be seen below).
Said Daniel: “C-TEC’s detectors have undergone rigorous laboratory testing for quality, functionality and performance. Only products manufactured to exceptional quality standards are awarded Intertek’s prestigious stamp of approval.”
Easy-to-fit, with a 9-33Vdc operating voltage, ActiV detectors offer outstanding detection performance at a very competitive price. Suitable for use not only with C-TEC’s CFP, FP, MFP and EP203 conventional fire panels but with many other manufacturers’ control panels, the range also carries the prestigious pan-European ‘CertAlarm’ System 5 mark.
C-TEC also unveiled its proprietary new analogue addressable CAST protocol and fire detectors at Firex International. Although third-party certified by Intertek at the same time as our conventional detectors, our CAST addressable detectors will not be available for sale until Q4 2013 when our BETA site test regime is complete.
Said C-TEC’s MD Andrew Foster: “As one of very few independent companies in the fire industry, C-TEC is in an incredibly fortunate position as we are not beholden to shareholders and thus have the freedom to create truly innovative products. The launch of our own UK-manufactured detectors and revolutionary new CAST analogue addressable protocol mark a major milestone in our history and we are looking forward to expanding and forging new business relationships in the coming months.”
