Pertronic FireMap® and Fire Alarm Protects Queensland’s New Children’s Hospital


The striking architecture of Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital is the visible face of the new Queensland Children’s Hospital complex, which also includes the adjoining Centre For Children’s Health Research.

A Pertronic fire alarm system protects the entire facility. The system is based on a network of nine Pertronic F120A analogue addressable fire alarm control panels with more than 10,000 addressable devices, including over 400 fire fan and damper controls. The alarm system is interfaced to an EWIS system covering 580 zones.

A Pertronic FireMap® PC-based graphics system with three workstations provides management and staff in both buildings with immediate information about any fire alarm incident, including instant access to a floor-plan pin-pointing the exact location of any incident.

With input from the project’s air handling consultant, Pertronic Industries’ Queensland office and Lower Hutt factory worked closely to design, build, and install the Fire Fan Control Cabinets (pictured at above).
