C-TEC’s revolutionary Quantec addressable call system is playing a key role protecting a new £6.5M purpose-built mental health centre in Kendray, Barnsley.

Located adjacent to the existing Kendray Hospital site and linked to the main hospital by a connecting corridor, the Oakwell Centre is a brand new acute mental health unit consisting of two 15 bed separate male and female wards, a six bed Intensive Care Unit and a therapy/administration area.

The Hospital’s management team and staff were already familiar with Quantec as C-TEC’s powerful call/staff attack system has been in operation at the main Hospital for many years now. Hence the UK-manufactured system, with its flexible call routing and multiple call levels, was the obvious choice for the new Oakwell Centre.

The specification also called for infrared staff-attack coverage in all patient areas, including external spaces and courtyards. Consequently, Quantec’s innovative radio receivers and pagers were introduced throughout the entire site to enhance the coverage of the centre’s staff-attack system. Infrared master receivers were housed in IP rated boxes mounted under the soffits covering the external courtyards and walkways.
