30 James Street, Liverpool’s magnificent new Titanic-themed hotel, is being protected by one of C-TEC’s state-of-the-art ZFP touch-screen controlled addressable fire alarm panels.
With 64 cabin-style bedrooms, a spa pool, wedding suite and Champagne Bar/Restaurant all inspired by the legendary tale of the doomed ship, the luxurious hotel has been cleverly designed to recreate the magic of the block-busting film.
Providing the building with complete protection is a ZFP touchscreen controlled fire panel programmed and commissioned by SPL Fire Safety, the Cheshire-based consultancy that oversaw the project. The ZFP’s brightly lit touchscreen interface displays all system information and, in the event of fire, will indicate its exact location. One of the C-TEC’s SigTEL disabled refuge systems has also been installed. In an emergency, the system will provide two-way communication between disabled people waiting in the hotel’s ‘refuge’ areas and rescue teams.
Said David Lenagan of SPL Fire Safety: “30 James Street – home of the Titanic – is one of Liverpool’s most exciting new tourist spots and we were delighted to secure the project. The iconic Grade II listed building required a bespoke fire alarm system and we had no hesitation in utilising C-TEC’s new ZFP panel. C-TEC’s sales and technical support was also a key factor as the company provides excellent backup and after sales services.”
