Why You Need A Dedicated Fire Alarm Systems?
Fire Alarm Systems are a particular safety need of every organization to have for their offices and warehouses. NY Engineers provides comprehensive contracts to organizations and businesses to keep their assets safe.
NY Engineers’ team of expert engineers, safety analysts and technicians make sure that you have the safest options possible. The Fire Alarm Systems provided by NY Engineers in their contracts are compatible as well as versatile.
These alarm systems are integrated into the central alarm system of the building. This saves you cost and also saves time if you’re on a tight schedule to secure everything. The engineers will survey the building for the alarm systems. They will then figure out whether the integration is possible and if it is compatible.
If the building does not have a dedicated alarm system, then NY Engineers can also provide a dedicated alarm system within the building as well. The costing will increase if this is the case, however, this is very necessary and important for evacuations. The alarm system will be installed first within the building. The architects will have to cooperate with the engineers as they might need the accurate blueprints of the building. After the survey is completed, a detailed proposal will be put forward to you. This detailed proposal will factor in several factors such as person density in each area as well as cost and time.
Audibility is one of the most important aspects of the fire alarm systems as there need to be clear cut sounds when an emergency occurs. Not only the fire alarms, but the communication systems also need to be very loud. This is because when there is an emergency, people tend to panic and create a lot of noise which may drown the alarms initiated by the fire alarm systems. Not only this, sometimes, the sound of objects burning and sometimes bursting can also hamper the loudness of the fire alarms.
New York Engineers make sure that all the alarms installed inside the building can generate a fire alarm signal of a power-up to 70dB. Our engineers measure this sound level at a height of 5 feet above the ground so that maximum intensity can be maintained and assured. This standard should be followed for the general office space and foyers.
For other areas, our engineers recommend that the sound should be 15dB. Our engineers measure this sound about 7 feet above the ground. Our engineers also recommend that the alarm should be at least 5dB above any other alarm sounds in the environment.
The location and placement design required for the alarms will be facilitated for the building according to the SPFE rulebook for the building or residence. The audible notification appliances shall be configured according to the SPFE standard as well. This standard will help the engineers to calculate the sound attenuation through doors, walls and other obstacles. This is done so that maximum propagation can be guaranteed. This is also done so that the sound can travel from room to room in order to be amplified.
Wherever the communication systems are provided, our engineers will make sure to provide an automatic evacuation message which can be broadcast to all the speakers in the building to ensure everyone knows that an evacuation is in process. However, elevators and staircases will not have an automatic message broadcast, but instead, a manual announcement must be made on the speakers.
As a policy, NY Engineers only install and configure visual notifications in case of new installations and not upgradations or integrations. This is because our visual notifications are made specifically to cater to emergencies. These visual notifications are also made on special software for a special kind of screen which is made to be impervious to any kind of heat or smoke.
If visual notifications will be installed in the building, then they will only be installed in places where it can be viewed easily. It will not be installed in places such as individual offices or rooms where hardly anyone can see them. This is for your benefit as it will reduce costs and make for more efficient visual notifications. Public and common areas include restrooms, conference rooms, general office area, parking lots, corridors, and foyers.
NY Engineers also cater to the disabled people working in buildings and even residing in some. For this reason, the visual notification circuits are optimized to notify the deaf, mute and other kinds of disabled people so they are not left behind and so they are aware of it all.
Smoke detectors are also another important part of the fire alarm system as they provide warning before the fire even starts. These are important for preventing fires from growing or even happening at all. The smoke detectors are provided by NY Engineers. These smoke detectors are selected specially to feature long-range detection ranges as well as loud sound notifications.
These smoke detectors are installed according to the international building code.
The smoke detectors are installed in the following rooms of the buildings:
These rooms are the most critical and are most liable to fire. NY Engineers will install all of the smoke detectors in the rooms most critical and most liable to fire. The engineers will also test the smoke detectors vigorously after installation. Smoke detectors can be controlled from the fire alarm systems which provides an effective centralized way to control all the components.
Supplying power to the fire alarm systems can be a problem because the power supply for the entire building may be the cause of the fire. This is why we highly recommend our clients to have the fire alarm system attached to the emergency generator systems. Or in other cases, we suggest connecting them to dedicated generator systems which will help them run.
NY Engineers also provide generators to clients. We can arrange to have a generator installed for your building or residence so that it can effectively power up the fire alarm system. This fire alarm system will then be connected to the emergency generator which will be put on standby mode.
We also recommend getting batteries installed in the building and then connected to the fire alarm system. This is because sometimes the emergency generator systems also get burned or corrupted and fail to start up the whole system. For this purpose, it is better to have a large battery or collection of batteries installed and connected.
NY Engineers provide batteries from a third-party source; however, we also make sure that these batteries are fully tested by our team of skilled engineers. These batteries are tested and made to be fully functional and kick in once the emergency generators fail. The battery is stored in another room where it is kept in special conditions in order to make sure that the batteries do not get all ruined.
Wiring And Connections
Fire is a dangerous situation and it can burn down rubber and all other kinds of equipment as well. Most electrical wiring is done with copper which is sheathed by rubber insulation. While this is adequate in most situations where the fire is usually not a risk or even a problem, this is definitely not the best way to go.
NY Engineers also offer services to replace any sort of the previous wiring with new and improved wiring which is impervious to fire. This is optional and will add a preservation value for the electronics and electrical connections in the building.
But, our team of engineers will always make sure to put up wires and connections to the fire alarm system and all other subsystems which it is connected to. These wires will be made to be fireproof and impervious to heat and any other kind of complication. So, you can rest assured that all of your safety systems will work regardless of the situation at hand.
Maintenance and Testing
In order to make sure that all of your fire alarm system equipment is working and up to the standard, our team of highly skilled engineers visit the building every 6 months. This maintenance is important because your fire alarm system may develop faults or errors over time which can be a huge problem for you to deal with. This is also dangerous when you are faced with a real emergency and your fire alarm system then gives away.
Our maintenance teams check each and every aspect of the fire alarm system. This includes the subsystem installed in it as well as the wiring, the power sources and the integration. This is done through rigorous testing methods and procedures which our engineers perform. This may take a full week or even two weeks to fully test out. This depends on the kind of building and the kind of fire alarm system installed.
As an alternative, our team of engineers and experts can also train your employees to perform the maintenance and testing procedures themselves, however, this is a lengthy process and costs more. This is also not as efficient as having our own engineers and experts to carry out.
