If you own or operate any type of commercial property or business, you understand the importance of safeguarding your employees and customers and protecting your firm’s inventory and property. From comprehensive fire safety equipment to state-of-the-art fire alarm systems and video surveillance systems, having a trusted security system company in your corner is the key to gaining and maintaining your peace of mind regarding the security of your commercial property.
State laws, municipal fire codes, and evolving building codes have rightly placed the regulatory spotlight on fire safety, which means that you, your business, and your property are much safer as a result. It also means that you have a great deal of options when it comes to selecting the technological tools to keep your business safe. Let us explore some of these options while discussing the advantages of working with a reputable security system company by your side.
Regulating Fire Safety and the Role of Your Security System Company
A great deal goes into the design, development, and installation of fire alarm systems. When it comes to designing building however, not all fire alarm systems are created equally in terms of what is required. Indeed, by law, your security system company will have a myriad of regulatory hurdles to ensure that that property is properly protected. To begin, under the requirements of UI NFPA 72, along with fire alarm codes established by local agencies, your security company will design a system based on “Use Group.” Simply stated, a “Use Group” refers to the planned use of the building. That is to say whether the facility will be used as a school, medical facility, private home, or office building, the law(s) mandate additional requirements to ensure fire safety. As you can imagine, each of these Use Groups will require differing approaches to fire protection.
Security System Company Accreditation
Having a fully licensed and credentialed fire alarm company working on your design plans is important from the ground floor of the project on up. As mentioned above, each type of building usage might mandate a differing fire security approach. As such, working with a team of experts will help you develop a scalable security approach regardless of your building’s proposed usage.
