Fire Alarms & Notification Systems

Fire alarms are an integral part of every fire protection plan. Advanced Safety Systems Integrators offers a range of products by trusted suppliers to detect and warn of fire. In most buildings, the greatest risk of loss occurs when the facility is unoccupied. If there is a fire or security alarm and no one is on the scene to respond, significant loss can occur. We provide communication equipment and tie-ins that can relay signals to a monitoring company. Alarm system monitoring reports a security or fire alarm to a remotely located UL listed central station.

Notification is also a critical element of fire alarm systems. These systems take many forms – audible, visual or a combination. Through our network of industry suppliers and our expertise in comprehensive fire protection, Advanced Safety Systems Integrators can recommend the appropriate solution to ensure your safety. Reliable detection and notification systems are a key barrier to devastating loss. We also provide inspection, maintenance and repair services on commercial notification and detection systems to ensure the protection of lives and property.

Enhanced Wireless Systems – BDA/DAS ›

When first responders are called to a building fire, one of their most critical needs is reliable communication. In 2017, the International Association of Fire Chiefs Survey reported that 98.5 percent of first responders reported dead spots in buildings. Fifty-six percent of those surveyed experienced in-building communications failure in emergencies and 31 percent experienced communication failure. BDA/DAS systems can eliminate that failure and ensure communications remain functional during emergencies.

Mass Notification ›

Mass Notification is defined by the U.S. Department of Defense as “the capability to provide real-time information to all building occupants or personnel in the immediate vicinity of a building during emergency situations. To reduce the risk of mass casualties, there must be a timely means to notify building occupants of threats and what should be done in response to those threats.” Through innovative technology, we can design a comprehensive solution not only to notify people of danger, but also to instruct them of action to take to avoid it. Mass Notification Systems are a combination of systems for input, detection and output that allows a facility to keep its occupants informed every step of the way. Notifications include traditional speakers and strobes and also include email blasts, text messages, voice messages, computer pop-ups and electronic bulletin boards.

Voice Evacuation ›

Fire alarm voice evacuation notifications use speakers and amplifiers to provide more information to occupants of facilities during an emergency. A fire alarm tone is followed by voice instructions rather than a horn or bell. It also allows for emergency responders to broadcast live messages through a local paging microphone.

Common Applications:

  • Places of assembly, typically of 50 or more people
  • High rise buildings where zoned evacuation may be needed

Threats Reported:

  • Fire
  • Severe weather
  • Gas leaks
  • Chemical spills
  • Intruders

Traditional Notification ›

A traditional fire alarm notification system is designed to alert occupants as well as a designated monitoring company. Once smoke and heat detectors recognize the potential existence of fire, the control panel triggers flashing strobe lights and horn alarms to inform occupants of the need to evacuate. The operator of the monitoring center then dispatches emergency responders.

Common Applications:

  • Places of assembly, typically of 50 or more people
  • High rise buildings where zoned evacuation may be needed

Threats Reported:

  • Fire
  • Severe weather
  • Gas leaks
  • Chemical spills
  • Intruders
