Trust Gow Fire with all your Commercial Fire Alarms needs

Commercial Fire Alarm System Components

A basic fire alarm system relies primarily on smoke detection, manual pull stations, and audible notification devices to alarm the control panel.

Your business may also require:

Manual pull stations – allow employees to sound the fire alarm as soon as smoke or fire becomes visible. Smoke will reach the smoke detectors, but a manual pull station can save precious minutes and allow more people to exit the building quicker.

Flashing Horns and strobes – the horn and strobe units mount throughout the workspace. The horn makes up the sound component of a fire alarm, while the flashing strobes provide the sight component of the fire alarm.

Heat Detectors – can detect a heat buildup in a closed area such as the server room. A rise in the temperature can signal a fire starting, even if it’s not visible to the employees.

If you have questions about designing or installing a new commercial fire alarm system for your remodel or new construction project, we would love to help.
