Fire Alarm System
The purpose of a fire alarm system in a commercial, retail, healthcare or other setting is to ensure the safety of the people on the premises and to protect the property against the ravages of fire and smoke. To do this, intelligent fire alarm systems warn occupants and authorities that a fire is in progress.
A fire alarm system detects&warns through visual and audio appliances when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other emergencies are present. These alarms may be activated automatically from smoke detectors, and heat detectors or may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations.
Alarms can be motorized bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm, followed by a voice evacuation message which warns people inside the building and advises them to take precautionary measures and/or evacuate the premises.
