DESCRIPTION

FireFinder System

OVERVIEW

The indigenous owned and operated Gagadju Crocodile Holiday in located in Kakadu National Park has recently undergone a major refurbishment to all 65 rooms, and Ampac Technologies were chosen as the supplier for the Fire system.

SITE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES

This hotel’s existing Fire System was causing the hotel problems due to the age of the system in conjunction with issue’s related to the high humidity in the region.

Combined with the remote location of the site it was recommended that the Fire System be replaced with an Ampac FireFinder.

SYSTEM SUMMARY

The Ampac FireFinder consists of a new 6 loop panel along with 32 Conventional zones to pick up the existing detectors and keep the system operational whilst a staged changeover to addressable was carried out.

SITE SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS

To address the issue of the remote location of the Gagadju Crocodile Holiday Inn, the FireFinder was fitted with a PC which will be placed on the hotels network allowing for remote access to the FireFinder and programming and diagnostics to be carried out by any one of Ampac’s 6 Australian Customer Service Offices.

The ability of the FireFinder to be fitted with both Conventional Zones and Addressable Loop Cards enabled the system to be changed over with limited disruption to the day to day operations of the hotel.

INSTALLER STATEMENT

It is not often that a business is fortunate enough to boast the services and support of an organization that excels above and beyond its responsibilities. It seems, however, that we at Apollo Fire have found that support in AMPAC. Due to the remote location of the project, the organization and project management from the NSW team was consistently excellent. It was these extra efforts that assisted us in completing the project ahead of schedule.
