What is a fire alarm system?
A fire alarm system is a quick-response system that alerts those in a building of a fire emergency so they can evacuate as soon as possible.
Why do you need a trusted and professional company like Innovative Sound & Security to install your Fire Alarm System?
If you have a fire emergency and your Alarm System was not installed by professionals, your insurance company may not cover any damage.
What is the difference between a fire alarm and a smoke detector?
A smoke detector and a fire alarm work together, but they are two separate devices. The smoke detector detects a change in the air that suggests smoke in the area. Once this is detected, the smoke detector sends a signal to the fire alarm control panel, which triggers the fire alarm to alert occupants to the presence of smoke and/or a fire.
What does the Low-Voltage Fire Alarm Installation include?
It includes fire alarms and fire suppression systems and works on 50 volts or less, providing immediate attention to a Fire Emergency. The innovative Sound & Security team can recommend, install, and service low-voltage solutions for your business.
Where are fire alarms required?
Specific requirements for fire alarm placement vary based on local jurisdictions. Typically they’re required inside sleeping areas and at least one on every floor.
How often should fire alarms be inspected?
Local jurisdictions may have specific guidelines outlining specific fire alarm system maintenance requirements. At a minimum, best practices include weekly visual inspections to check the control panel, power supplies, fuses, LEDs, and trouble signals; monthly inspection of the batteries for corrosion; semi-annual inspection of initiating devices/detectors; and an annual inspection of all equipment to monitor for any significant changes.
How often should fire alarms be tested?
Again, local jurisdictions may have specific guidelines outlining how often a test and fire alarm system service should occur. You can plan for at least an annual test for most components, though some components require semi-annual testing. Fire alarm system tests are crucial not only to stay in compliance with local authorities but to ensure that your system will function properly when it’s needed.
