What Makes a Fire Alarm Work
A fire alarm system only works if there are detection units that can trip the alarm, so your fire alarm system will need to have different detection units in strategic areas for monitoring. Depending on what your business is we may recommend smoke detectors, heat detectors, CO2 detectors, or other devices that will be connected to a central hub.
But automatic detection units are not the only things to use. There should also be manual fire alarm pulls positioned throughout the building so that when people are present in the building, they can trip the fire alarm themselves before the automated systems would detect it. These will be strategically located around the building like the automated detection units are.
Your fire alarm also needs to have a backup power supply so that if the power is out, it can still function and protect the building. Your fire alarm system will keep these backup batteries charged when the main power is on, but then will continue to protect your building when the power is out.
Help With Insurance
Not only is it smart to have a fire alarm system for protection, but you may also qualify for lower insurance rates. This is because if a fire ever starts in your building, your fire alarm will alert the right people so that there is a chance of saving at least a portion of your building and equipment. If less damage happens that means they have to pay for less to rebuild. This reduction in insurance rates can help to offset the monitoring that you will have with your fire alarm system.
Take control of your situation before it takes control of you and leaves you, perhaps literally, standing in ashes. Businesses in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Brookhaven, Canton, Kennesaw, Sandy Springs, and the surrounding areas have found that fire alarm systems provide an important layer of protection.
