Fewer False Alarms

Having a certified fire alarm system that is professionally installed and maintained can cut down on false alarms, resulting in less disruption to your business and avoiding costly fines.

Cost Savings

In addition to minimizing property loss, a professional fire alarm installation can reduce insurance rates.

Features & Options to Consider

The features you’ll want in a commercial fire alarm system will depend on the fire hazards present in your building, the type of business you operate, and the size of your property. 


Voice Evacuation

With audio and visual notification, fire systems can also have audio instructions that informs building occupants that a fire is no progress and they need to evacuate immediately. Voice evacuation is normally required in assembly halls, educational facilities, and larger buildings with many occupants.

Fire System Monitoring

Commercial fire alarms are one of the security measures you’ll want to connect to 24/7 monitoring. That way, if an alarm is triggered, the source of the fire can be quickly identified and authorities dispatched swiftly to ensure minimal loss of property.

Emergency Door Release

When an alarm is triggered, some commercial fire systems will automatically unlock emergency doors in the zone where the fire is detected.

Gas Monitoring

Some commercial fire systems also integrate the detection of poisonous gasses like carbon monoxide, triggering alarms when a certain threshold of safety for omissions has been breached.

(Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus)


These types of fire detection systems involve continually sampling the air rather than just relying on smoke detection. They provide an earlier warning in buildings like theaters, jails, or concert venues where evacuation may take longer.

Wireless or Radio Fire Alarms

These fire alarms are especially helpful for larger buildings or multi-site commercial properties where signals may need to travel a long distance and hardwiring would be impractical. By installing multiple RF devices a mess network is created, saving both time and money..
