ANU Birch

A landmark campus of the Australian National University (ANU) is now being protected by cutting edge wireless fire devices as part of a new fire system installed by Fusion Fire.

The Birch Campus, located in Canberra, is a landmark 1960s complex that was recently subject to a multi-million dollar makeover to make it fit for purpose in the 2020s. This included a total revamp of the fire system, with Taurus wireless detectors, sounders and other devices being used where needed to minimise the impact on the building’s fabric.

Designed by Fusion Fire in-house experts, working closely with the project managers for the refurbishment, the new system is a hybrid of wired and wireless zones, combining to offer cutting edge protection across the entire campus complex, including teaching spaces and scientific laboratories.

This is one of the first Australian installation for the new Taurus wireless fire devices, which are fully compliant with all relevant local fire regulations, including AS1670.1-2018, AS1670.4-2018, AS1668, and AS7240.25, the specific standard governing the installation and utilisation of wireless detectors.
