Torvac installs Fire Detection to protect the animals at the RSPCA…
Torvac were contacted by the RSPCA to handle the design and installation of an Addressable Automatic Fire Detection and Occupant Warning System at the Yagoona shelter, to make sure their staff and the animals have early detection and warning in the event of fire.
The new RSPCA Sydney Shelter (Yagoona) is the largest animal shelter in the southern hemisphere, caring for 900 dogs and 200 cats. The Sydney shelter is also home to a variety of other animals including birds, rabbits, mice, sheep, cattle, goats, horses, pigs, guinea pigs, chickens and ducks. When designing the fire detection and alarm system for such a unique property, in addition to deciding the type of system, detectors, call points and alarms to be used etc., there were also other aspects that needed to be considered. These included measures to limit false and unwanted alarms, method of installation, materials required during installation, user training, routine maintenance procedures, and a service agreement.
Over the past three years Torvac have worked closely with the RSPCA in expanding their fire system including the latest Stage 1 development of the Yagoona shelter. The Yagoona shelter is fitted with a brand new veterinary hospital and is an extremely busy environment which made programming the installation works a critical item in the successful and satisfactory delivery of the project.
Torvac Solutions would like to thank the staff of the RSPCA for working with us and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.
