CTS approached ClearView with the requirements to expand their existing fire alarm system into a new building on site. The additional work would include installing fire alarm devices such as smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual call points (MCP) and sounders.

With the existing conventional fire alarm system utilising Apollo Series 65 as the current protocol, this was replicated for the fire alarm system expansion. Clearview designed the fire alarm system to the relevant BS5839-1 to ensure a comprehensive design, installationmaintenance and commissioning of the fire alarm detection. CTS fire alarm systems fall into category L3, and this is because there are detectors installed on all escape routes and high hazardous areas.
