Networked Hush-Pro Systems

To unleash the full power of Hush-Pro you can connect multiple stand-alone Hush-Pro systems to a communal C-TEC XFP or ZFP CAST protocol addressable fire alarm system (available 2019).

  • Use the Cause & Effect programming of the communal XFP or ZFP CAST fire panel to set-up building management approved phased evacuation scenarios that don't put peoples' lives at risk.
  • Program keyswitches at the communal CAST fire panel that allow the emergency services to evacuate groups of dwellings and/or floors of dwellings without having to climb staircases.
  • Report wiring faults, Fire Level 1 triggers (e.g. optical detector activated) and Fire Level 2 triggers (heat detector activated or optical detector activated for a prolonged pre-set period) to off-site monitoring centres to ensure potential dangers are reported in real time.

Hush-Pro Operation & Functions

  • When the Hush-Pro system is in its normal state, power is applied to its detection and alarm circuit which is continually monitored for open and short circuit faults.
  • When a fire detector within a dwelling triggers, the system's Alarm sounders and VADs will activate.
  • Depending on the system's configuration, a remote overdoor indicator outside the room and/or cooker shut-off relays may also activate.
  • If multiple Hush-Pro systems are connected to a compatible communal fire system, automatic phased evacuation, manual fire brigade evacuation and the off-site reporting of faults and fires may also be possible (see Networked HUSH2 Systems tab above for more details).

Some of the operational options available on Hush-Pro are:-

  • A HUSH/SILENCE FUNCTION
    Allows a hushed period of two minutes to be applied (and extended if required) for the management of false alarms
  • A 'HOT WORKS' FUNCTION
    Allows a hushed/isolation period of fifteen minutes to be applied (and extended if required) to protect against inadvertent activation.
  • A 'TEST' FUNCTION
    Allows the functionality of the system's detectors and alarm devices to be electronically tested with relevant faults indicated via the controller's fault status LED.

  • Fully compliant with the latest revision of BS 5839-6 - upgrades the level of protection offered in a dwelling from the minimum Grade D requirement to Grade C.
  • Provides individual dwellings with an extendable two-minute silence facility and 15-minute isolate facility.
  • Mains powered via a separate double gang PSU with onboard 72 hour standby supply
  • Long-life replaceable Lithium Ion rechargeable battery (up to 12 years' life)
  • Wiring between all detection and alarm devices is fully open and short circuit monitored
  • Silence, Test and Fault Status indicators & controls can be viewed or operated at floor level and are therefore suitable for use by the elderly and disabled.
  • Four indicator LEDs - green Supply LED, yellow Fault LED, red Alarm LED and yellow Hushed LED.
  • Auxilliary interface connections to remote systems, e.g. communal fire alarm systems
  • Manufactured in the UK by one of the world's leading commercial fire system providers.

Why use a Grade C system?

BS5839-6 GRADE C REQUIREMENTSBS5839-6 GRADE C REQUIREMENTS
Grade C systems require fault monitoring of the power supply.Grade D system power supplies can be completely unmonitored (Section 6.2 of BS5839-6 2013).
Grade C systems require fault monitoring of the interconnecting wiring.There is no monitoring of the wiring required in Grade D systems (Section 6.2 of BS5839-6 2013).
Grade C systems provide a readily accessible method of silencing and testing the system at floor level for compliance with Section 9.1.1 of BS 5839-6 2013Grade D systems require additional equipment to provide silencing facilities at floor level.
