Member of the FPA

Comtec Data Pty Ltd is a member of the Fire Protection Association of Australia (FPA). We can design, install, maintain and repair Fire Detection Systems to Australian Standards and can allow for system integration of fire, security or access control systems.


Fire Indicator Panels (FIP’s) are the controlling component of a fire alarm system. The Fire Indicator Panel receives trigger signals from detectors or manual triggers from break glass units so early warning can be provided to occupants in the event of a fire.

The Fire indicator panel warns occupants both audibly and visually and can be integrated with other building components such as electronic door locks and air-conditioning systems. The fire indicator panel can also relay information back to a monitoring centre for further action in the event of a fire.


Emergency Warning and Intercommunication Systems (EWIS) and Occupant Warning Systems (OWS) assist with evacuation of occupants in the event of a fire. They can provide an audible broadcast throughout the building to assist with the evacuation procedures or can be used as an public address system during non-emergency situations.

Maintenance of your Fire Indicator panel and EWIS/OWS systems is a FPA requirement to ensure the Fire Detection System will function correctly in the event of a fire. Monthly testing of Fire Indicator Panels and Emergency Warning Systems are recommended and Comtec Data Pty Ltd perform these maintenance tests to Australian testing standards.
