Fire Alarm Systems

Fire Alarm Systems

Commercial buildings require a reliable commercial fire alarm installation. As a life safety device, it should be designed and installed by professionals. Mammoth can design, install, and test your fire alarm control panel.

Types of Sensors

Types of Sensors

Smoke detectors are the most commonly known sensor type. Heat detectors and pull stations are also commonly used for fire protection. Each sensor should be located according to NFPA standards. All sensors should be hardwired back to addressable systems for the best reliability.

Elevator recall is an important integration to have. If the fire alarm panel smoke detector or other sensor trips, it recalls all elevators to the designated floor of egress. Every fire alarm system integrates with a monitoring company to ensure the fire department is called quickly. Access control systems can also integrate into the fire alarm to ensure all doors are unlocked and be opened freely. It can even close fire-rated doors in your hallways that are held open. Most importantly, fire alarm systems integrate with sprinkler systems.

Conventional fire alarms are great for small buildings. They go off individually when they detect smoke or heat. Addressable fire alarms are used for larger buildings requiring many zones. This technology with a scalable network of sensors and zones all identified with exact locations in the panel was a big innovation in life safety devices.
