We are proud to introduce the new C-Tec BS5839-6 Hush Button.
This hush button device is BS5839-6 compliant and provides a solution for houses of multiple occupation (HMO's)
They are designed to sit on an Apollo XP95 / Discovery / Xplorer or Hochiki ESP Analogue Addressable Loop
Each hush button unit has it's own conventional detector circuit, conventional sounder circuit and onboard integral loop isolator.
They provide each HMO dwelling with a two minute silence facility and a 15 minute isolate facility
How does the system work?
Each Hush Button can be looked upon as a miniature fully monitored, self-powered single zone fire alarm panel that sits and is addressed on an analogue loop with the ability to communicate its status back to the host fire panel.
Typically one double gang Hush Button is fitted in each HMO dwelling complete with conventional detectors and sounders to provide occupants with a simple, cost-effective means of invoking two types of 'hushed' period, as specified in clause 12.2 of BS 5839 part 6.
The whole system is geared towards reducing unwanted alarms by putting HMO occupants firmly in control of their own fire detection systems without losing sight of the fact its primary purpose is to protect life and property.
Moreover, the fact each Hush Button and its local cabling is monitored means any open circuit, short circuit or tampering fault is relayed to building management via the analogue loop and host fire panel for appropriate remedial action - a feature that is simply not available on existing Mains/battery type alarm systems.
