Lord Wandsworth College

Ampac protects 650+ students across the 1200-acre Lord Wandsworth College campus in the UK.

Project Overview

Located in the small village of Long Sutton on the north Hampshire / Surrey border in the UK, Lord Wandsworth College is a school for day and boarding pupils. The college campus spans across 1200-acres and is home to over 650 students.

The Challenge

  • Long distances between nodes.
  • Staggered installation requirements working around the school term.
  • Upgrade from a conventional to an addressable system.
  • The time it used to take to update the system.

The Solution

Ampac partnered with the team at W J Fire Ltd to deliver a tailored solution that would protect staff and students across the college's campus. A networked addressable fire detection system was installed, which included:

  • 22 x FireFinder PLUS Addressable Fire Alarm Control Panels. 
  • Fibre Optic Network.
  • 3000+ XP95 Detection Devices.
  • SmartView Graphical Event Management System.

Ampac replaced an old, slow to update, conventional system, and through the use of 8 Zone Conventional Board within the FireFinder PLUS, the panels were able to be upgraded gradually working around term time.

A Fibre Optic network was used to cater for the long distances o up to 2km between nodes.
