Fire Alarm Systems for Every Business
Fire alarm systems are a critical component of any business, providing a reliable safety system and advanced notice to employees during a possible fire emergency. These systems are connected to our central monitoring station, which provides continuous surveillance of your fire alarm. The monitoring station has all of the business contact and location information saved into the system. When a fire alarm is triggered, the control panel transmits to the central monitoring station and the appropriate authorities are called to the scene.
Some of the most common components of a fire alarm system include:
- Control panel—central component of a fire alarm system
- Detectors—smoke, heat, and duct detectors
- Manual fire alarm boxes—to manually initiate an alarm signal
- Emergency battery – in the event of a power outage
- Audible and visual alerts—bells, horns, and strobe lights
- Sprinkler system—connections to waterflow and gate valve tamper switches, required for commercial properties
- Fire Alarm Communicator—for sending alarm, trouble, and supervisory signals to central station
Digital fire communicators require two phone lines. With the ever-rising cost of phone lines, this may be a budgetary issue for any company especially those with multiple sites. To meet this need, Metro Alarm & Lock offers a number of different UL listed fire communicators that do not require phone lines.
