Commercial businesses require a fire alarm that is different from a residential fire alarm. Commercial fire alarms are required to have more bells and whistles than residences. They are also interconnected so that if one goes off, they all do. This ensures that the building is evacuated as quickly as possible in the event of a fire. Commercial fire alarms also have to be monitored by a third party, typically a security company. This is because if the alarm goes off, it could be due to a fire or it could be due to a break-in attempt. Either way, the security company will dispatch the appropriate authorities.
Commercial businesses require a security system to protect the property from intrusion and fire. The system should be designed to meet the needs of the specific business, including the type of business, the number of employees, and the hours of operation. The system should also be designed to meet the building code requirements for the specific jurisdiction. The installation of the security system should be performed by a qualified installer who is familiar with the code requirements. The system should be tested regularly to ensure that it is functioning properly.
Advanced Fire Protection Services Ltd. provides security services including ULC certified DSC system installations for commercial and residential properties. Our ULC certified monitoring station is based in Edmonton and monitors customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also provide ULC certified fire alarm panel communicator installations.
