Perhaps one of the most important tools to invest in in order to ensure that your business is completely protected from dangerous fires is a commercial fire alarm monitoring system. With something like this, it’s important to keep in mind that the better your system is, the more amount of protection you will have for your business due to the fact that the system itself will be able to alert both you and the monitoring company in the event of a fire breaking out. The fire alarm monitoring information provided can apply to different commercial establishments such as buildings, offices, and warehouses.
There are a few different factors involved with determining exactly which type of commercial fire alarm monitoring system will be the right one to select for a businesses, such as the following:
*Overall size of the building that houses the business
*The amount of service that is requested
*The specific type of service or business that will feature the system
Here are four of the most basic types of commercial fire alarm monitoring systems that many businesses invest in.
*One of the most basic types of commercial fire alarm monitoring systems that businesses tend to invest in is the addressable system. This is similar in nature to a conventional system due to the fact that it enables every area of a building to have a fire alarm that will be able to directly connect back to the main control panel itself. On the other hand, when it comes to an addressable commercial fire alarm system, you will be able to determine exactly which specific alarm was triggered in order to have a better chance of directing first responders to the affected location.
*Another of the most basic types of commercial fire alarm monitoring systems that businesses invest in is the conventional system, which, like the addressable system, is able to ensure that all spaces within a building is able to have a fire alarm to connect back to the main control panel. Conventional fire alarm monitoring systems can be either automatic or manual in nature and also divide a building into sections or zones.
*Other expanded options are more of the most basic types of commercial fire alarm monitoring systems that tend to be invested in by businesses. Some of these options include containment systems, which are designed to lock down areas that help to prevent a fire from spreading; ventilation, which is designed to either reduce or remove both fumes and smoke in a specific area in order to assist with evacuation; and sprinkler systems, which are designed to automatically release either water or a chemical fire retardant whenever a fire has been detected.
*Another basic type of commercial fire alarm monitoring system that many businesses tend to invest in is the automatic system and the manual system. In terms of an automatic system, this is designed to trigger an alarm and notify the monitoring company overseeing the system in the event that a fire is immediately detected. On the other hand, manual systems will typically require an actual person to be physically present to activate a fire alarm, such as by a method like using a pull station in a specific location.
