Why did the customer contact us?

Solutions provided:

Alif Security team provided a comprehensive fire alarm system solution for the customer's commercial building. Our solutions included the professional installation and integration of various essential components to ensure the utmost safety and protection for the building's occupants and assets. Here are the solutions we provided:

We installed Addressable Heat Detectors to replace H350, 135 Deg in critical areas with high fire risk or where traditional smoke detectors might not be suitable. These detectors can quickly detect elevated temperatures or rapid changes, alerting the fire alarm system.

Addressable Smoke Detectors - White were placed strategically throughout the building to offer early detection of smoke and communicate the presence of a fire to the central fire alarm control panel.

Dual-Action Addressable Pull Stations were positioned at easily accessible locations to empower building occupants to manually activate the fire alarm in case of an emergency.

We integrated the Control Relay Module f/ Ms9200 Replaces to allow the fire alarm system to interface with other building systems, enabling coordinated emergency responses and enhancing overall safety measures.

Ceiling Strobes were installed to provide visual alerts during a fire incident. These strobes emit bright flashing lights to notify occupants in noisy environments or those with hearing impairments.

Speaker Strobe White Ceiling devices were strategically placed to offer both audible alarms and flashing strobe lights. These devices enable the broadcast of evacuation instructions and emergency messages, guiding occupants to safety.

The 160 Char LCD Remote Annunciator in a Red Enclosure was positioned at a central location for easy access. This remote annunciator allows building staff or responders to view fire alarm events and control certain functions remotely.

We added Surge Protective Devices with Lockout Kits to safeguard the fire alarm system from voltage surges, ensuring its reliability and protection from electrical disturbances.

A 1 Zone 25 Watt Voice Evacuation Panel with Microphone was installed to provide clear and effective broadcast of evacuation instructions during fire emergencies, assisting in the orderly evacuation of occupants.

Ceiling Horn Strobes in white were strategically positioned to provide additional audible and visual alarms throughout the building, enhancing the fire alarm system's notification capabilities.

To ensure continuous operation, we installed a 12v 7ah Sealed Lead Acid Battery for the Fire Panel as a backup power source for the fire alarm control panel.

We used 18/4 White Solid Plenum Fire Alarm Cable, 1000' and 16/2 Red Solid Plenum Fire Alarm Cable, 1000' to meticulously interconnect all fire alarm system components, ensuring reliable communication and data transfer within the system.

By providing and integrating these solutions, we equipped the customer's commercial building with a state-of-the-art fire alarm system, prioritizing early detection, efficient evacuation, and coordinated emergency response, thereby enhancing the overall fire safety of the premises.
