Automatic for the People
With the growing emphasis on safeguarding property as well as people, the market for automatic fire suppression systems is booming. Comprising a third-party certified three zone automatic extinguisher panel and host of expansion ancillaries, C-TEC's EP Range has been specifically designed to meet this demand. Ideal for areas housing expensive, dangerous or irreplaceable items of equipment such as computer suites, libraries & art galleries, telecommunication centres, archive storage areas, chemical plants and generator rooms, it includes a wealth of features, many of which are not available on more expensive extinguishing equipment.
C-TEC's EP203 three-zone automatic extinguisher panel is LPCB certified to EN12094-1 and EN54-2/4. Featuring an intuitive 128 x 64 pixel graphic display that gives clear and concise feedback to user and installers, it includes six monitored inputs (including hold and abort), a time-stamped event log, adjustable flood times and changeover relays for fire, local fire, 1st stage active, 2nd stage active, extractor fan and fault. Elegantly-styled in a durable enclosure, the EP203 epitomises quality, durability and reliability.
Need to cover a room with multiple entrances? Up to eight flush or surface mountable remote status units, each with their own displays, manual release buttons and mode switches, can be connected to the EP203 control panel via a monitored RS485 bus. Cost-effective single gang economy status units are also available. With so much choice, C-TEC's EP Range is anything but your standard run-of-the-mill automatic extinguisher system.
The nature and cost of fire suppressing agents means many installers shy away from extingishant systems with one of their biggest concerns the accidental release of the suppressant in a false alarm situation. Have no fear, C-TEC's IP66 rated Hold and Abort Buttons can be used to delay (hold off) or cancel (abort) the extinguishant release sequence at any time depending on how they are configured. Job done!
Whatever type or size of extinguishant system you're installing, our all-encompassing range of conventional devices can be combined to suit. We stock a huge range of versatile and cost-effective manual call points and sounders & VADs from leading names in the fire industry such as KAC, Fulleon and Cranford Controls.
C-TEC's ActiV fire detectors include a host of features installers love - plenty of working space, two ultra-bright LED indicator strips offering all-round visibility, an ingenious detector/base locking mechanism and compatibility with virtually all known conventional fire alarm panels. Certified to the relevant parts of EN54-5/7, optical, fixed heat, rate-of-rise and multi-sensor variants are available, all manufactured in the UK. It's no wonder so many installers are switching to ActiV.

Ideal for controlling beam detectors, auto-dial communicators, aspirating smoke detectors, electromagnetic door holders, ventilation systems and more. the range comprises 1.5A, 3A and 5A 24V units and a 2A 12V unit.
