Make Up a System (2.0)

Here is one for you lot:
Here is one just now:

Enjoy:

Johnston’s Superstores Store 1217

Fire Alarm:

Original system: none.

Current system: Vantage Excel.

Vantage Excel 64 zone 4 loop addressable fire alarm panel, Vantage S5 call points with the newer “Vantage by Honeyway” resettable plastic push element, older 34775 optical smoke/heat sensor sounders with the “Vantage” logo without the quote marks, set to alternating, Vantage Sentry repeater panel that doubles as the door lock control panel, Vantage S4-S-ST sounder strobes set to alternating, in 2021 the system was upgraded to firmware version 4.18.8, a newer Vantage by Honeyway 34775 optical smoke/heat sensor was installed on the ceiling above the corridor leading to the toilets, seven Vantage by Honeyway S4-S sounders only were also installed, the system has had no faults apart from 1 sounder fault due to an S4-S-ST sounder strobe being moved to another part of the store, the fault was fixed afterwards, the system is tested bi-weekly on Tuesdays, there has been one unexpected activation caused by a sprinkler flow switch activation, but is fine now.

Thanks for reading this.

McKinley Towers was built in 1976. It is a 12 story apartment building.

Panel

  • Current System: Simplex 4100ES INFOALARM (voice evacuation equipped)
  • Original System: Edwards 5721B

Initiating Devices

  • Current System: Pulls are all Simplex 4099-9001s, all behind Stopper II Covers. Hallways have 4098-9601 smokes above each elevator landing, and above the fire doors. Each apartment has 4098-9754s on 4098-9773 sounder bases. The boiler room has a 4098-9733 heat sensor.
  • Original System: Pulls were a mix of Edwards 270, EST 278, and Simplex 2099 pulls. Hallways had Edwards Ionization Detectors, with a few i3s as replacements, and each apartment had Smoke Sentinel detectors, along with replacement Gentex smokes.

Notification Appliances

  • Current System: Signals here are Simplex 4906-9151 speaker/strobes. These can be found in all hallways, public areas, and the main lobby. ADA apartments have Simplex 4906 series remote strobes. Public restrooms have ceiling mounted 4904 strobes.
  • Original System: The whole building had a mix of 7002s and 892s in the hallways. Most units had 34-24 horns. Some were replaced with Genesis horns and horn/strobes. Some had Wheelock MT24 horns.

Kierenford Shopping Centre:

Original system: Gent Vigilon 32 zone.

Current system: 128 zone Vantage Excel.

Shopping centre was built in 2014 and has been modified with the frog clock in 2016 that spins a wheel and swings a pendulum carrying a golden ball to the frog/clock end from the sun/bellows end, the system was recently upgraded to a 128 zone system to allow each shop unit’s system to communicate with the main system, a call point activation will initiate a stage-1 alarm where all sounders and bells will pulse with the exception of the ancillary sounders as they cannot be pulsed so they will only activate during a stage-2 full alarm, the panel will display the zone in alarm and will pulse its own built-in sounder to alert centre staff of an alarm condition, if it is found to be a false alarm, the bells and sounders will be silenced, the call point reset, and the main system reset, if it is necessary to evacuate, the panel will automatically or staff will manually initiate a full stage-2 alarm and the bells will continuously ring and all sounders will sound the 2 tone alternating evacuate tone, if a smoke/heat/carbon monoxide/multi-sensor activates, the system will go straight into a full alarm, and the PA speakers will play the message: “Attention! Attention! A fire emergency has been reported. Please evacuate the shopping centre using the nearest exit or fire exit stairs, do not use the lifts, I repeat, do not use the lifts. Thank you”. twice.

Devices:

Mixture of call points from Vantage by Honeyway to pre-Honeyway Vantage call points, old and new style KAC call points with resettable plastic push elements, Apollo ancillary base sounders, motorised bells, 3 of the 9 anchor tenants have Apollo XP95/Discovery systems, the other 6 have Apollo XP95 systems. B&M has an 8 zone Gent Xenex system with new style KAC call points with resettable plastic push elements and 1990s Gent fire bells from when B&M was the former Focus DIY store. Wilko has a conventional Kentec system with call points, Apollo Series 65 smoke/heat detectors and Fulleon Roshni sounders. The stage-1 alarm message is: “Attention! A fire emergency has been reported in Kierenford Shopping Centre. Whilst we are investigating the emergency, please prepare for a stage-2 alarm condition, unless it is a false alarm. Thank you”. the Argos store has 2 Fulleon motorised fire bells and an older KAC sounder. Specsavers has a flow switch and smoke detector with a smoke detector module in their basement, a sprinkler activation will initiate a full alarm, a smoke detector activation will initiate a localised fire alarm activation in the Specsavers unit. An alarm activation in the cinema or restaurants will not cause a full alarm activation if acknowledged within 3 minutes, if not acknowledged within 3 minutes, a full alarm will occur. The cinema fire alarm system will play a message over the PA system speakers in all screens as well as sound all the alarm sounders, the message is: “Attention please! Attention please! A fire emergency has been reported in the cinema, whilst we are investigating the alarm, please evacuate when you hear the alarm sounders. Thank you”. Asda has a Protec system with Protec smoke detector sounders on alternating and Protec sounder strobes on alternating.
The McDonalds in the shopping centre has a Gent Vigilon system with S4 call points with resettable plastic push elements and S4 S-Quad smoke/heat/carbon monoxide detector sounder strobes and S4 S-Quad smoke/heat/carbon monoxide detectors with strobes only, there is one co2 detector in case of a co2 leak from the soft drinks machines which when activated will sound the alarms in McDonalds only, and activate a stage-1 silenced fire alarm condition in the shopping centre, PA system speaker message: “Attention! An incident has been reported in Kierenford Shopping Centre, please prepare for evacuation, thank you”!

This is one big post I guess.

Midsummer Place Shopping Centre Milton Keynes, United Kingdom.

Midsummer Place Shopping Centre has 476 stores, 9 of which are anchor tenants, the central part of the shopping centre has access to the toilets, car parks, lifts, stairs and escalators to the upper floor where the food court is, the frog clock that blows bubbles uses a wheel that spins round and swings a pendulum side-to-side, carrying a golden ball from the sun end of the track to the frog/clock end of the track, and spins the wheel and now empty gently swinging side-to-side pendulum back to the sun end of the track, the shopping centre has a 128 zone addressable Vantage Excel system that is connected to the fire alarm systems in the shops, car parks and food court.

Activation devices:

Mainly Vantage S5 manual call points with resettable plastic push elements, a couple of smoke/heat detectors, individual systems in the car parks, shops and food court.

A manual call point activation will initiate a stage-1 fire alarm condition, all alarm sounders in the centre itself will sound the pulsed alert tone, and all strobes in the centre will flash, the panel buzzer will sound to alert staff of the activation, if it is deemed to be a false alarm, the alarms will be silenced, the panel buzzer will be silenced, the call point reset and the panel reset, if necessary to evacuate, staff can manually activate or the panel will automatically activate a stage-2 full fire alarm condition, all lifts will recall to the ground floor, all alarm sounders will be sounding and the alarms in the centre:mk will also go off. The anchor tenants have Apollo XP95/Discovery systems, the air ducts above the frog clock have Vantage 35776 duct smoke detectors that when activated will cause a stage-2 full fire alarm condition.

Stage-1 alarm PA message: Attention please, attention please. A fire emergency has been reported in the centre, please await further instructions.

McDonald’s in the food court has a conventional system with Apollo Series 65 smoke/heat detectors, old style KAC call points with resettable plastic push elements and Fulleon motorised fire bells, the LEGO store has an Apollo XP95 system, the brand new Cineworld has an Apollo Discovery system with it’s own PA message: Attention! Attention! A fire alarm has been activated in the cinema, please evacuate the cinema, thank you.

The car parks have older Gent systems with Gent smoke detectors, panels, call points and fire bells, Burger King has a Gent Vigilon system with S4 S-Quad smoke/heat/carbon monoxide detector sounder strobes/detector strobes and S4 call points with resettable plastic push elements.

Primark has a Notifier system with KAC Notifier new-style call points with resettable plastic push elements and Notifier smoke/heat detector sounder bases/sounder beacon bases set to alternating.

Stage-2 full alarm condition PA message: Attention! Attention! A fire emergency has been reported in the shopping centre, whilst we are investigating the alarm, please evacuate the building using the nearest fire exit, do not use the lifts, use the stairs. Thank you.

Alarm PA message in the centre:mk: May I have your attention please! May I have your attention please! An incident has been reported in Midsummer Place, as such, please evacuate the shopping centre using the nearest fire exit, do not use lifts, I repeat, do not use lifts, use the stairs! Thank you!

The panel in the centre:mk is a Vantage Excel slave panel, the call points are a mixture of older and newer call points, some with resettable plastic push elements and some with glass push elements, various smoke/heat/carbon monoxide/multi-sensor detectors, some are on sounder bases/sounder beacon bases and some are not, KFC has a conventional system, the 12 anchor tenants have Apollo XP95/Discovery systems, the main centre alarms are a mixture of bells, sounders, strobes, bell-strobe combos (rare in the UK) and sounder strobes.

Make up system time!

Made Up High school: Built in the late 70’s, finished in 1980. The system had a Simplex 2001 as the main panel, devices were Simplex 4051s on Simplex 4050-80s. Pulls were simplex 4251-30s. Eventually, a few of the alarms went bad and were replaced with anything they could find. This being Edwards Adapta-horns. Eventually, in 1990, the building was added onto, with a Simplex 4002, Edwards 270-SPO pulls, and simplex 4903-9101s with 2901-9838s. Some of the devices were Wheelock 7002T-24s. Devices that failed in the 2000s were replaced with Spectralert Classics, then on, the building was added onto AGAIN! This time, in 2009, and had P2Rs and BG-12s. The panel was an MS-9200. Swapped out for an MS-9200UDLS. That’s it folks!

Massive grammar school in London England, called The London Grammar School, built in 1897 with a weird fire alarm system.
1897 building:
Original system:
240v ac fire alarm system, Vantage Electronic Smoke and Heat Warning Systems Co keyswitch fire alarm panel with break glass and press button call points, 240v ac smoke and heat detectors, Vantage motor bells and incandescent lights for visual signals.
The system was installed and commissioned in 1898 and was decommissioned in 1999 when a 1990s Gent Vigilon Compact system was installed which has been active ever since, but the original fire alarm system remains inactive having not been removed.
Current system:
Gent Vigilon Compact from 2003, 1990s Gent manual call points, Gent 34202 horn sounders on alternating tone, Gent 12511-52 sounders on the master (conventional) alarms circuit, set to alternating tone, Gent 34770 optical smoke/heat sensor sounders set to alternating tone, Gent 3400 heat sensors in some classrooms, a 1990s Gent motorised fire alarm bell in the main reception area. Lockdown tone is continuous.
Science/DT block system:
Originally a wireless EMS 500 system but was removed and replaced with a Gent Vigilon with Gent S4 devices.
New building system:
Apollo XP95/Discovery system.

Kierenford School’s fire alarm system:
Main building system:
Originally a Gent System 34000 with Gent 34800-EN break glass call points, Gent 17840-01 optical smoke detectors modified to be addressable along with the call points, Gent 34202 horn style sounders.
Current system:
Gent Vigilon Compact from 2003, with Gent Vigilon 32800/32842 addressable call points, Gent 34203 horn style sounders as the Gent 34202 horn style sounders were decommissioned along with the rest of the Gent System 34000 fire alarm system, Gent Vigilon 34770 optical smoke/heat sensor sounders, Gent 34770 heat sensors, Gent 12511-52 sounders on the conventional master alarm circuits, the original system was decommissioned but is still in place.
New building system:
Gent Vigilon Plus with S4 call points, detectors, S3 sounder strobes and one Gent S3 sounder only.

2 new made up fire alarm systems:
First system:
Clockgate Shopping Centre:
A rather grotty and run down shopping centre full of cheap tacky shops selling absolutely rubbish products at laughably cheap prices, all lifts in the shopping centre were Kone Ecodisc lifts modernised by generic lift companies and have horrendously bad lift logic, motors that need to be replaced, and the lifts are hardly in service.
Fire alarm system:
Unknown system, the main panel is in a security area located in secret floor 3 accessible by using a drop key.
Devices:
Unknown.
PA system:
Generic PA system rack located in the mechanical room. Generic speakers, desks and microphones.
Second system:
In 2018, Clockgate Town Council damaged their reputation when they upgraded the lifts in the shopping centre with cheap, generic lifts that are almost never out of order. In 2019, Clockgate Shopping Centre closed down for good and many YouTubers filmed urban explores of the abandoned Clockgate Shopping Centre which is still standing.
In 2021, a brand new shopping centre called The Clockgate Shopping Centre opened its doors, the shopping centre is nice and modern and in excellent condition, the large main area of the shopping centre has a bubble blowing frog clock with a golden ball mechanism with a wheel and pendulum mechanism, the lifts are The KD Lift Company Limited trading as KD Lift Co M-4000 lifts with VF drive controlled motors that have a soothing hum with epic lift logic, the fire alarm system is a networked system with addressable devices.
PA system:
Kierenford PA Systems Group PA system rack located in the centre management suite next to the main fire alarm control panel, Kierenford PA Systems Group PA speakers, microphones and PA system audio desks, linked to the fire alarm system.

Dale park shopping center

The Mall ended up going under a massive renovation in 1999 and ended up taking the most of the indoor part of the mall out making it a outdoor mall. The system ended up getting removed in 1999 after the closure of the mall. This construction period ended up taking a long time but they finally finished in 2001 with 2 new anchor stores. One of them being a Macys and the other one being a Safeway.

Kierenford Courthouse and Prison Facility:
Fire alarm system:
Main public areas: Gent by Honeywell S4 call points with resettable push elements, S4 S-Quad smoke/heat sensor/sensor strobes/sensor sounder strobes. Gent Vigilon panel.
Info about the building:
All criminal courtrooms have stairs leading to and from the defendant docks to the holding cells and courthouse prison facility where most people found guilty serve their prison sentences at, once the defendant is found guilty, they are taken through the door at the bottom of the stairs in the defendant docks, through the door, down more stairs, and into the courthouse prison facility where they are taken to a cell, the cell door opened and they go inside the cell, the door closed and the key in the door lock turned to the bottom position to lock the door.
Restricted areas of the courthouse:
All other areas of the building have Gent S-Quad detectors and S4 call points with resettable push elements except in the courthouse prison facility where there are S4 key operated call points.

As my last post in this thread was a while ago, I figured I’d post here again.
A bunch of made up fire alarm systems with made up back stories. Enjoy.
System 1:
East Kierenford High School:
Fire alarm system:
First system: none.
East Kierenford High School was built in 1709 as The East Kierenford Boarding School, the school originally had no fire alarm system, only having a homemade sprinkler system consisting of pvc pipes, fire sprinkler heads and a basic electric pump cobbled together in 2 days, the system works as it activated in 1956 when a fire broke out in the Sixth Form classroom after a projector started smoking, sparking, a spark landed on a piece of wood setting it on fire, the sprinkler put out the fire so there was only some minor fire damage, the fire department told the East Kierenford Boarding School to install a fire alarm system in 1957.
Second system (1957-1975):
The system consisted of an AC panel with 2 basic zones, alarm circuit and a trouble buzzer, the 2 zones had call points but no detectors, alarms were motorised bells, in 1975 a lightning strike during a severe thunderstorm hit the building, and fried the panel beyond repair, it was replaced with a 4 zone AC panel.
Third system (1975-1999):
Devices remained the same, no detectors, the panel blew up in 1999 and was replaced again with a much bigger more advanced fire alarm panel.
Fourth system (1999-2000):
The system died in 2000 when the building was severely damaged by a major fire, the school had to close for 2 years when the building was demolished.
In 2002, a brand new building was built on the site of the former East Kierenford Boarding School, the brand new East Kierenford High School opened a year later in 2003.
System 1 (2003-2009):
Very basic conventional system with detectors, bells, strobes for the deaf or hard of hearing people, call points and 4 zone conventional fire alarm control panel, the system was decommissioned in 2009 when the high school was expanded with a new building being constructed.
System 2 (2009-2010):
The system died in 2010, and East Kierenford High School was abandoned and demolished in 2010.
Next system:
Central Kierenford Boarding School was built in 1925 and had a simple and basic unknown fire alarm system installed. In 1956, the system had to be ripped out as new regulations introduced called for a much better and newer fire alarm system.
First system (1925-1956):
Unknown devices and unknown panel.
Second system (1956-2000):
AC panel, bells, call points and detectors.
This system was removed in 2000 when the boarding school was renovated, the system is a networked 6 bay addressable Vantage Sentry Plus fire alarm control panel.
Third system (2000-)
Vantage Sentry Plus with Vantage devices.
Kierenford Boarding School:
Main building:
Fire alarm system:
Networked Vantage Sentry addressable fire alarm control panel:
Devices:
Vantage call points, Vantage strobes, Vantage 34775 optical smoke/heat sensor sounders, Vantage 34776 heat sensors, Vantage motorised fire bells.
Skills Centre:
Vantage conventional panel, Vantage conventional devices.

A 1920s boarding school that has a pretty big history.
Name of school: East Texas Boarding School.
Construction started in 1918 and finished in 1919.
The school opened in 1921 as the East Texas School and originally had no fire alarm system up until 1956 when an Autocall pull rod fire alarm system was installed, in 1975, the system was replaced with a Simplex system with Simplex T-bar pull stations, Simplex whiffleball smoke detectors and Wheelock 7002T-24s on continuous, in 1999, a student got permanently suspended for damaging a pull station and a Wheelock 7002T-24 horn strobe, the pull station was replaced with a brand new T-bar and the Wheelock 7002T-24 was replaced with a System Sensor MASS sounder set to hi-lo alternating. In 2001, the remaining 7002T-24s were disconnected but were not removed as they were still in working condition, the System Sensor installer installed more System Sensor MASSes set to hi-lo alternating, in 2007, a brand new sprinkler system was installed and the flow switch was wired to the alarm circuit in the control panel so when a sprinkler activates it will trip the alarm system.
In 2009, the Simplex panel’s NAC circuit was fried when lightning struck the building, the panel was replaced with a newer Simplex panel, the school eventually closed down in 2010, the building was left abandoned by the school district up until 2017 when the brand new school district renovated and reopened the school building.

Hillside Middle School
Circa 1969
DISCLAIMER: SOME DATES MIGHT BE OFF
in 1970 when finished construction
Edwards 891Ds and Adaptahorns.
In places where horns are not needed, like bathrooms some classes, etc, 890 lamps were installed
Edwards horns only’s were installed in places where lights were not necessary.

1998

Eventually, the system was upgraded in 1998 with EHS-DL1 horn strobes and WS3T strobes.
Devices that failed were replaced with integrities.

Then, in 2009, a lot of the N/As were replaced with Integrities.

In 2016, most to all of the integrities were replaced with EST 757H-75PS devices. Some of the original integrities remain. Outside, there are 3 EST Outdoor integrities.
4 of the original devices remain. Still connected and working to this day. 1 891D in the gym. The horn on this 891D has been replaced with an EST remote horn. 2nd og device is an 891D in the boy’s locker room. Does have its adaptahorn. 3rd device is an 890 Lamp in the drama room. Lastly, and adaptahorn in the girl’s locker room. The strobe got replaced with a WST3 tho.

One 891D remains in an abandoned janitor’s hallway. It is connected to the system but sounds like junk. the light is burnt out and has a hole in it from a janitor hitting it with a broom. did it again and she smashed the horns grill. producing the stupid sound.
That’s it folks!

oops. I forgot to mention the panel. original panel was an edwards 6500 Custom. New panel as of 2022 is an EST3. Pulls originally were 270SPOs. Now are SIGA 270s and 278s

Sharver Convention Center

Sharver Convention center was built in 1975 as a convention center for the city of Sharver. Sharver Convention Center is a older Convention Center that isn’t really used much anymore but is still running. The company who owns Sharver Convention Center built Stanley Pokes Convention Center in 2021 which is much much bigger then Sharver Convention Center. Sharver Convention Center got a massive renovation in 1994 and 2008.

LOL speaking of making up a system, if I could invent my own fire alarm system; it would be the Fire Alert 12075-4T horn/strobe. 120 decibels, 75 candela. 4 Tones; It would produce either a steady beep, code 3 beep, code 3 chime or pulse.
