An automatic fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. In general, a fire
alarm system is classified as either automatically actuated, manually actuated, or both. Automatic fire alarm systems can be used to notify people to evacuate in the event of a fire or other
emergency, to summon emergency services, and to prepare the structure and associated systems to control the spread of fire and smoke.
After we establish your fire protection goals, usually by referencing the minimum levels of protection mandated by the appropriate model building code, insurance agencies, and other authorities - we will compile specific components, arrangements, and interfaces necessary to accomplish these goals. Equipment specifically manufactured for these purposes are selected and standardized installation methods are anticipated during the design. In the United States, NFPA 72, The National Fire Alarm Code is an established and widely used installation standard.
