Smoke Control & Pressurization
Smoke control systems using mechanical equipment, such as fans and dampers, rely on the integrity of the equipment to control the spread of smoke within a building. Fire/life safety and HVAC systems must be carefully integrated to ensure reliability in smoke control systems. FPI provides smoke control, stairwell pressurization, elevator pressurization, and UUKL listed fire alarm systems from some of the top brands in the industry. And as always, we get it done right the first time so you don’t have to worry about protecting your business.
The firefighters use their radios, but, as they put out the fire in a large building, when their radios don't work, they use the firefighters phone system to communicate. Firefighter Phones are often mandatory in many multi-story buildings and with FPI we will be able to install, test, maintain, and repair your Firefighter Phone to ensure proper function and compliance.
Area of Rescue Assistance/Elevator Lobby Two-Way Communication
Areas of Rescue Assistance are mandated by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) as a means of providing greater safety to people with disabilities in case of an emergency. An Area of Rescue Assistance system enables two-way communication between a rescue site, such as a stairwell or foyer, and a central command station, such as a main lobby, fire command station, or central monitoring station. Fire Protection is one of the leaders in Area of Rescue Assistance, and our professionally trained technicians are there to help with everything from install, to training, to inspections.
Emergency Radio Responder Coverage (ERRC/DAS/BDA/800Mhz)
The intent of the Emergency Responder Radio Coverage system is to provide a tool for emergency responders to maintain radio communications during an incident, and a higher level of protection and safety for firefighters while inside buildings. The ERRC system improves operational effectiveness by allowing the use of the existing communications system and equipment and by avoiding the need to use special radio frequencies or systems, intercoms or mobile repeaters in stressful emergency situations.
Many jurisdictions are now requiring EERC systems and FPI is a leader in these systems in Western Washington. We have more experience and knowledge than any other provider in EERC systems as well as exclusive distribution contracts with the top manufacturers of these systems. Contact us today for all of your Emergency Radio Responder Coverage needs.
Nurse call systems are the communication link between residents or patients and caregivers in buildings like hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities. FPI is well-versed in these communication systems and can help ensure their proper function so that your patients and caregivers are protected in the event of an emergency or fire. Contact us today whether it is installation, inspections, or service.
