Case Study

  • Bosch fire alarm systems provide optimal protection to safeguard life and property
  • Flexible and scalable modular fire panels can be expanded to user needs
  • Simple system design which means ease of use

Protecting the safety of the children and faculty is definitely the number one priority. Once children are on school property, their safety and well-being become the responsibility of the school personnel and administrators. School fire safety is important as a single fire can affect the safety of over 1,100 children. It is important for the teachers to follow proper procedures to ensure the safety of the students while they are in their care. One way to ensure the safety of the children is through a school fire alarm system, to ensure that the entire school population will be alerted in the event of a fire emergency.

After assessing the requirements and site, T.S.R. Telecom System Co., Ltd – Bosch Security Certified Partner – proposed the fire alarm solution using the FPA 5000 Modular Fire Alarm system with customised specifications for each area.

A total of 259 Optical Smoke Detectors and 23 Rise Heat Detectors were installed across the 11 buildings within the school. The fire detectors and devices are connected to an FPA 5000 modular fire panel via the LSN 1500A. Each device has an address on location, enabling the exact detector that was triggered to be identified quickly.

The complete system is operated via a touch screen. The user-friendly interface adapts to the existing situation in a way that is simple, clear and intuitive. There is no special dongle required for programming to set up the system.

The simple system design and ease of use were what the customer wanted. The reputation of its brand gave St. Andrews International School Bangkok confidence in Bosch. Coupled with the exceptional after-sales service they received, the school was extremely satisfied with the project.
