Commercial Fire Alarm System

As the region’s most trusted installer of commercial fire alarm systems, Network Drops serves to protect our clients’ businesses from going up in flames following a fire. From property damage, destroyed inventory, and data loss; thousands of businesses across the country fall victim to fires due to inadequate systems. 

Manual Fire Alarm System

The most common fire alarm system is a manual fire alarm, which requires building occupants to physically locate and hand activate the alarm. Typically found in commercial properties or industrial buildings, devices known as call points are installed near doors and stairwells to activate the fire alarm system in the event of an emergency. 

Automatic Fire Alarm System

Smoke Detectors

When considering the components of your commercial fire alarm, smoke monitoring systems are essential for businesses. Smoke detectors come in many shapes and sizes and have various functions for different applications. The two types of smoke detectors are ionization detectors, which have an ionized chamber that triggers the alarm when smoke enters, and optical smoke detectors, which sense smoke when an LED light beam is broken by smoke entering the device. In general commercial applications, smoke detectors are the most efficient way to detect a fire.

CO Detectors

Aside from smoke detectors, carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are another critical component of your automatic fire alarm system. Unlike smoke from a fire, carbon monoxide is a byproduct of burning carbon fuel, which is colorless, odorless, and extremely toxic. Known as both silent and deadly, even the slightest exposure to carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to permanent damage or even death. Network Drops’ CO detectors are the fastest way to ensure the alarms get rung the moment a gas leak or elevated levels are detected.

Heat Detectors

Though similar in appearance to traditional smoke detectors, heat detectors are actually very different. Whereas a smoke detector’s alarm reacts to the presence of smoke, a heat detector only reacts to a sudden change in temperature in a given environment. The two different types of heat detectors are rate-of-rise detectors, which triggers when the temperature rises excessively, and fixed temperature detectors, which are triggered when the temperature rises to a certain degree (usually 135 degrees F).

Single-Use Systems

Depending on your business and the requirements of your trade, single-use systems are installed to ensure all building and operational code compliance is met. 

HVAC System Monitoring

In most commercial or industrial settings, HVAC system monitoring is required per mechanical code. This system monitors sprinklers’ water flow and tamper switches as per the fire protection code. Our experts will work with your contractor or building manager to ensure all of your systems meet all local requirements and industry specifications.

Sprinkler Monitoring

When you’ve installed a state-of-the-art sprinkler system, you’ll surely want, and in most commercial applications be required, to monitor the valves which control the water flow to your sprinklers. When there’s a fire and your sprinkler system is activated, monitoring allows you to know how much water is making it to the valves to ensure successful fire suppression.

Elevator Recall Monitoring

If you own a commercial property or industrial facility which has an elevator, there are many building codes that must be adhered to in order to ensure the safety of everyone in the event of a fire or emergency situation. Elevator recall exists to protect individuals from taking the elevator to an area that is on fire or filled with smoke. Once the elevator recall is tripped, the elevator cab will immediately return to the proper level and open its doors, allowing a safe exit, and will be ready for emergency responders’ use. This system requires close monitoring, and your building’s fire alarm control panels are what control the recall, shunt trip, and fire hat requirements for your elevator(s).
