Press release

A £4.6 million co-educational special school and college in St Helens, Merseyside, is being protected by C-TECs revolutionary touch-screen controlled fire panel.

Mill Green School, a fabulous new learning environment for 11-19 year old pupils, was completed in August and C-TEC’s powerful EN54-compliant 4-loop ZFP addressable fire alarm panel is at the heart of the life-safety-systems at the school. 

Connected to a multitude of C-TEC’s addressable voice sounder beacons and Apollo XP95 Xpander radio devices and detectors, the ZFP has 40 programmable zonal indicators which, in the event of a fire, will pinpoint exactly where it is in the building.

Said Paul Fallon, Director at Syncro Fire and Security, the company that designed and installed the fire alarm system: “We were very impressed with the ZFP, particularly the panel’s touchscreen interface as it facilitated fast and straightforward programming of the ‘one out, all out’ system at the school.”
