Project Summary

Coffewood Correctional Center is a secure facility that had a unique set of challenges. Due to security reasons no laptops were allowed at the site and the team had to create a specialized way to record all inspection, testing, and maintenance services. The Kinetix team replaced many of the fire sprinklers with institutional fire sprinkler heads in order to prevent inmates from tampering with the system. Additionally, the prison’s warehouse had issues with lightning strikes which required a fire alarm panel replacement. Since this was a reoccurring problem, Kinetix installed surge protectors in order to prevent future lightning strike issues.
