How Fire Alarm System Works
Fire Alarm Systems are comprised of many elements. Some are standards and others are upgraded features which all work together to contain a fire, and alert you when there is danger. Fire alarm systems include; occupant notification appliances such as horns and strobe lights, initiating devices such as smoke detectors and manual pull-boxes, batteries for backup power, an enunciator panel and a control unit that ties everything together. In addition, the fire alarm often ties into other systems such elevators and sprinklers as well as off-site monitoring stations or fire departments. No matter what they include, all components and features need to be regularly inspected, tested and have routine maintenance.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors & Alarm Systems
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Systems differ from fire alarm system as they contain detection and warning devices combined within the same piece of equipment. Being self contained units, they are typically found in homes. Not only do they require periodic inspections, testing, and maintenance, they should also be replaced about every 10 years.
Power Failure Emergency Lighting Systems
Emergency Lighting Systems are typically designed to give a minimum of one and half hours of use. In the event they are wired to a generator, different testing, maintenance, and inspections differ. Without the generator, they are equipped with batteries that require additional testing to ensure their function.
Emergency Exit Sign Lighting Requirements
In commercial settings, the “Exit” lights must meet the illumination standards and routinely be inspected, tested, and maintained to ensure efficiency. Such guidelines include the following:
– Emergency light fixtures have external illumination.
– Emergency lighting fixtures built into the sign have internal illumination.
– Self-luminous lights are powered by a source of low-level radiation.
– Photo-luminescent signs absorb and re-radiate light from the regular building fixtures.
Being physically present and clearly visible, the exit lights must also adequately light under non-emergency situations and are indicating to the correct traveling direction.
