Woodford Correctional Centre


Queensland's largest prison, the maximum security Woodford Correctional Centre is about 80 kilometres north of Brisbane. It was recently upgraded with a new fire detection and alarm system, along with a new control centre for its smoke management system.

The new system is built around a network of 34 Pertronic F120A fire alarm panels, along with a one-hundred-point fan control and indication panel for smoke management. New sensors, sounder and other devices were installed using existing cabling. With help from Pertronic Industries and our skilled contractor, Queensland Corrective Services kept the entire centre fully operational during the transition from old to new alarm and control system.
