The new extensions will be served with 3 loops and populated with Apollo Discovery multi-sensors, call points and interfaces. The existing format of 110dB conventional sounder beacons will be continued into the new extensions and will be served from the new control panel.

SPIE installed an Advanced Fire Alarm panel with a built in fully operational graphics LED screen. The panel incorporates bitmaps and zone diagrams with live alarm location updates enabling ease of use for the end users.
