Fire Safety & Detection
Fire Safety | Detection Equipment
Keep your building equipped for safety with these essential tools for fire prevention. For existing buildings smoke detectors should be placed on every habitable level and within each bedroom.
New construction requires that emergency smoke detectors be hard wired into the building’s electrical system, have a dedicated battery back up, and include an interconnect wire between them to sound all alarms in a network when one is triggered.
Be sure to check with your fire marshal or building inspector to ensure your facility is in full compliance. Whatever your local codes require, you can get all the fire safety and detection equipment you need right here from Emergency Lighting.
Fire Extinguishers & Fire Suppression Products
Fire extinguishers are classified by fire type. The A, B, C rating system defines the kinds of burning materials each fire extinguisher is designed to fight. The number in front of the A, B, or C indicates the rating size of fire the unit can extinguish.
To achieve a Class "A” rating, the extinguisher must be capable of putting out the wood crib, wood panel and excelsior (shredded paper) tests. Ratings are based on the size of the material that can be repeatedly extinguished.
