A fire has the potential to close a business for a brief duration – or longer – depending on how quickly the fire can be reported and contained.
National codes require certain businesses to have fire alarms and or monitored sprinkler systems installed during building construction to protect the premise and people that live or work in the building. Municipalities require engineered drawings, permitting, and equipment documentation with battery calculations for a 24-hour battery backup time.

Cellular communicators – NFPA72 2013 allows the use of a cellular communicator for reporting fire alarm signals and trouble conditions, whereas in the past a fire alarm system needed two phone lines to meet this code. These two additional phone lines increased the monthly cost of the fire alarm system and made the control panel vulnerable to storm and electrical surges. The use of a cellular communicator will decrease your monthly costs and reduce the control panel’s chances of storm damage resulting in more savings in the future.
