Alarm System Services For Commercial Buildings In New England
There’s no doubt that sprinkler systems and portable fire extinguishers are important for preventing property damage in a blaze, but when it comes to saving lives and getting people safely out of your building when there’s an emergency, nothing beats a functional fire alarm system. You never want to be caught in a situation where a fire breaks out, and you have no effective warning system to alert building occupants to evacuate.
To ensure optimal fire protection for your building, call on Fire Protection Team to install, retrofit, monitor, inspect, test and repair your fire alarm system. We’ll put our decades of industry experience to good use, making your building code compliant and safe for your employees and customers.
Fire Alarm System Inspections & Testing
To ensure ongoing reliability, fire alarm systems must be inspected and tested regularly. FPT examines your entire fire alarm system to ensure compliance with state and local fire codes. We always stay up to date with the latest code changes, so you don’t have to.
By the end of our inspection, we have verified the following:
- The fire alarm equipment is suitable for the site conditions.
- The system is operating in compliance with NFPA standards.
- There are no site conditions that could compromise the performance of the system.
- All meters, batteries, flow switches, tamper switches and low-pressure alarms are working properly.
- The smoke detectors are clean.
- All other devices are functional and tagged as required.
After each inspection, we provide you with a detailed written report of our findings, complete with recommendations to repair or improve your system.
