WRB selects Morley-IAS system to protect Dundee youngsters

22nd December 2014


Morley-IAS panels were top of the class when it came to choosing fire protection for 400 youngsters in a Scottish school.

Barnhill Primary School in Dundee first opened in 1970 and after being extended in 2014, it required an overhaul of its fire alarm and safety systems.

A pair of Morley-IAS DXc control panels were chosen for the fire system. A one-loop panel was installed in the older school building, covering all the conventional detection through zone monitors, while the second panel in the extension was linked to newly-installed System Sensor devices. All sprinklers, lifts and the BMS system were interfaced with the new installation as well as the access control system.

The improvements commissioned by Dundee City Council also included the creation of a disabled refuge and the installation of disabled alarms, access control technology and an intruder alarm system.

Paul O’Brien, director of WRB Fire & Security of Dundee, which carried out the work, said: “We installed Morley-IAS DXc panels as they are very robust and flexible and capable of accommodating future system expansion. We chose to install two panels for this reason and also to reduce the amount of cabling required. The installation was easy as Morley panels work very well with the rest of the devices. It was a very satisfying job.”
