Wireless fire alarm systems are here and they’re code compliant, cost effective and most important of all, dependable. Commercial Wireless Systems International (CWSI) equipment meets all of the same requirements of NFPA 72, the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, which wired systems are required to meet. And for those jurisdictions where Class A/Style D is required, CWSI equipment is listed for Class A/Style D service. Yes, without wires, Class A benefits can still be provided.
The features of wireless allow easier, faster and cost effective installations. For instance, take a garden apartment complex with multiple buildings. For new installations it allows wireless communication within each building as well as with a central or community building where a single remote connection can be made to reduce monthly service fees. In addition, the remote connection can be made by point not only to identify to the responding fire service the building in alarm but even the point or detector/apartment in alarm. In the case of a retrofit where the inter-building wiring has been compromised, with wireless, trenching, back-filling, reseeding and interim unsafe conditions for your tenants and guests are all things of the past.
If your property is of historic importance and maybe on the Register, the need for holes for the fishing of wires or the use of surface-mounted conduit/Wiremold is minimized with CWSI wireless systems.
Hospitality occupancy? For a hotel/motel installers can be in and out of a guest suite in minutes for a complete installation causing minimal interruption to the guests or rental of the unit. Ten minutes for the install, two minutes for the pre-test and another two minutes for the final test and you’re done.
