NFPA 72 ADDRESSABLE FIRE ALARM SAFETY SYSTEMS
Fire Alarm Work Scope……….
Cultural property management is entrusted with the responsibility of protecting and preserving an institution’s buildings, collections, operations and occupants. In office any building (Home, Office, Hotels or Hospitals etc), constant attention is required to minimize adverse impact due to climate, pollution, theft, vandalism, insects, mold and fire.
Because of the speed and totality of the destructive forces of fire, it constitutes one of the more serious threats. Vandalized or environmentally damaged structures can be repaired and stolen objects recovered. Items destroyed by fire, however, are gone forever. An uncontrolled fire can obliterate an entire room’s contents within a few minutes and completely burn out a building in a couple hours.
The first step toward halting a fire is to properly identify the incident, raise the occupant alarm, and then notify emergency response professionals. This is often the function of the fire detection and alarm system.
The approach in every Project is designed to meet an Internationally Recommended Standard for NFPA 72 Fire Alarm Safety System (NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm Code: define system Lays out overall system design parameters, such as location and spacing of heads and pull stations, testing and maintenance procedures, minimum performance requirements and operational protocols.),
Zone Module Wire initiating device circuit on each floor. In the case of a power-limited system, 24VDC is applied to two wires going to a string of initiating devices, which are wired in parallel.
Both wires are grounded, and they are isolated from EMT or other raceways, which are grounded through the connector at the control panel. Polarity is also critical. This voltage is used to power the solid-state circuitry within each detector. It’s also used by the control panel to monitor the state (alarm or no alarm) of the initiating devices and zone wiring.
So, what is a fire alarm system? A fire alarm system is a smoke alarm and smoke detector that alerts people that there is a potentiality (unwarranted smoke) of fire in the building, or a fire has started.
What are the advantages of fire alarms?
The main advantage of installing fire alarms is the early warning benefit. The fire alarms can be installed just about anywhere in a commercial building and best of all the fire safety measure is highly cost effective for smoke and fire protection.
Early warning is essential to effective fire safety because fires can occur anytime and anyplace. We highly recommend having fire alarms installed on every floor because a fire can ignite even when people are not within the office or section of the building.
Anyone can be immediately alerted of a fire at the building when your fire alarm system is connected to a remote monitoring station. This early warning signal is extremely important to life safety for the following reasons:
Increases evacuation time for building occupants before a fire spreads out of control.
Emergency medical help can be immediately sent out to those in need.
Fire department personnel can help people exit the building safely.
Our Work Scope – Planning, Installations & Delivery
Customers can contact our technical team for inquiry, and first to table the need for their security system requirements. To this end WESTCOT-GULF can arrange a site visit, for inspection, and parameter array, and develop a blue print to best suit the customer’s requirement, and offer input for security options and an installation schedule.
Our installations and maintenance projects are highly customers friendly, well planned from Site Inspection, Technical Design, Analysis, and down to Implementation, to minimize security risks, and focuses on cost efficient delivery with the least possible disruption to the customers operations.
All our installations are carried out by WESTCOT-GULF certified installers and a Hi-Tec Supervision by our affiliated Original Equipment Manufacturers.
