Building Security Systems (BSS) fire and life safety systems ensure employee safety and the overall welfare of a business. Up-to-date alarm systems guard against invisible hazards such as carbon monoxide and natural gas, both of which can pose a serious threat to life and property.

Fire system benefits

  • Field devices do not require shielded wire, making them less costly and easier to install
  • Input/output modules can be “ganged” in groups of six, requiring less conduit, boxes and wiring
  • Integrated dialer eliminates the need for the installation of an external unit

Add value to your system with

  • Water-flow detectors—Installed in fire alarm sprinkler systems, they monitor the flow of water to sprinkler heads with a specially designed paddle to detect sprinkler malfunctions
  • Smoke detectors—Provide early detection of fires before the fire spreads. Can be mounted on the wall or ceiling, and can be seamlessly integrated with a variety of other security systems
  • Natural gas/carbon monoxide detectors—Maximize safety by detecting gas—and sounding an audible alarm—well before it reaches dangerous conditions
  • Manual activation—Employees who discover smoke or fire can pull the station handle to activate an alarm. Alarm is triggered both locally and in the BSS alarm-monitoring center, and can be integrated with other security systems, such as CCTV, so the event can be recorded
  • Voice evacuation—Voice evacuation provides clear, yet compelling commands that quickly guide people to safety. It can be integrated with fire alarm systems, so when a fire alarm sounds, an emergency announcement is made simultaneously
