2016 will see the start of 2 new jobs using the hush buttons. The hush button is designed for Fire alarm systems were the system requires confirmation locally. These are being installed in apartments, on activation of the fire alarm system each of the apartments has a hush button box, if it’s a false alarm the occupant has 2 minutes to silence the alarm, If this doesn’t happen within the 2 minutes the building goes into full alarm.
We have spoken to the client and building control who are in full agreement that this is a move forward in the provision of a fire alarm system to a multi occupancy building
