This particular project called for a replacement of the existing fire alarm system at the Warkworth Institution, a medium-security prison facility located in Warkworth, Ontario. The project needed to be completed in a manner that ensured minimal disturbance to inmates and staff. Mircom’s flagship solutions (FleX-Net and OpenGN) improved upon the existing system by updating the notification process, allowing for remote access and minimizing the need for costly fire watch/monitoring. This case study examines the design considerations fundamental to retrofitting the institution to provide time-sensitive notifications in response to a fire situation.
The Mircom engineered solution delivered efficient building integration, stability and connectivity for the Warkworth Institution. The operations of the institution were never disrupted during the term of the project, ensuring its continued protection. This successful retrofit installation is another example of Mircom’s Intelligent Building Solutions improving the notification process, allowing for remote access and minimizing the need for costly fire watch and
