Fire Alarm Installations & Retrofits

New Commercial Fire Alarm Systems In New England

Our professional fire protection technicians design, install and program fire alarm systems for all types of standard and special hazards solutions. All of our system designs are reviewed by NICET (National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies) certified fire protection technicians, and all of our field personnel are factory trained on the products we sell. This allows us to provide the best possible service to all of our customers from start to finish.

Your building’s fire alarms are important for keeping your employees safe as well as maintaining fire code compliance. Fire alarm installation requires an electrical permit to be pulled with the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) (either a state or county authority). Once the permit has been issued, system plans are submitted for review and approval. Fire alarm installation is based on fire and electrical codes, primarily NFPA 72.

FAQs About Fire Alarm Systems

My business does frequent drills. What can I do about alarm fatigue?

Drills are a crucial component of any life safety strategy, but they can reduce the urgency of legitimate fire responses. Blaring alarms can also raise anxiety levels, which, in turn, can lead to chaos. Voice evacuation technology can resolve both problems. These systems are renowned for their versatility. They can guide your workers and customers to safe evacuation routes and alert occupants to weather events, violence and carbon monoxide leaks.

Do I need a specialist to install my commercial system?

If fire safety installation required electrical knowledge alone, any handyman would do. Such systems are only as effective as their strategic strength, though. All states must follow ICC model codes and the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, and only a specialist has the in-depth knowledge to apply them. Planning the ideal evacuation routes, lighting, fire fighting equipment and fire resistance into a commercial building requires just as much expertise, so choose a fire protection team that can bring you the best outcomes and smallest loss of life.

Is air sampling smoke detection necessary if I have smoke detectors?

Air sampling detectors can detect smoke hours before you can see or smell it. Speed has become critically important in the age of data centers and computing. Overheating digital technology doesn’t produce much smoke initially, so an ordinary smoke detector can cost you thousands of dollars in burned-out equipment. Innovative technology has made Very Early Warning Fire Detection possible, and when it comes to fire, faster is always better.

Should I replace my commercial fire alarm system with an intelligent system?

Addressable fire alarms give you the choice of automatic and manual functionality, so you can easily track failing hardware. Hybrid systems combine traditional and addressable systems through hardwired zone features and addressable loops. Every space is different, so it’s best to seek professional advice that’s specific to your building.

How can I tell if I need a commercial fire alarm replacement?

Smoke detectors and fire alarms need replacement every decade, but there are more important issues to address than aging hardware. Every year, improvements hit the industry in the form of advanced technology, new codes, and upgraded strategies. You also need a new system if your company has grown.
