DESCRIPTION

FireFinder / EV3000 Combo System

OVERVIEW

ARV Castle Hill is one of Australia’s premier retirement communities, comprising of six independent living villages and five assisted living facilities, spread throughout the spacious grounds in the heart of the Hills District.

SITE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES

Supply a Fire and Evacuation System for Brian King Garden, a low care accommodation grouped into fourteen wings of seventeen resident rooms. Brian King Gardens also has provision for high level care including palliative care and dementia specific care. This meant the requirement for a High Level Interface to the Nurse Call System.

SYSTEM SUMMARY 

The system consists of an EV3000 Evacuation System with a High Level Interface to the FireFinder Fire Alarm System which utilises over 1200 XP95 Detectors.

SITE SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS

By working closely with other services throughout the project Ampac were able to program the High Level Interface to the Nurse call system, during the installation so that valuable time was not lost near the end of the project.

INSTALLER STATEMENT

“The ease in which the Ampac FireFinder is programmed, as well as the support shown from the staff at Ampac helped ensure that the installation of the system was seamless.”  

– Geoff Mayhew - Project Manager Heyday Fire
