What You'll Learn

The 1980's saw a significant expansion of commercial real estate within the Chicago area. Now, nearly 30 years after construction of many of these buildings, significant retrofit activity is often required to maintain these buildings to current safety and efficiency standards. These buildings may be equipped with unreliable fire alarm systems that have limited capabilities. Most of these fire alarm systems are no longer supported by the equipment supplier.

A prime concern to the property owner, is that the life safety system now requires attention, resulting in some degree of upgrade or replacement of the fire alarm system.

Existing fire alarm systems may require replacement for a number of reasons including:

  • Increased failure rates of system components
  • Inability of manufacturers to provide replacement parts (particularly microprocessors and power supplies)
  • Failure of the system to meet owner/occupants current needs
  • And, the lack of trained service personnel with adequate knowledge and understanding of older model fire alarm systems.

Don't miss Bryan Nordlund, Rocco Bartucci, and Terry Till from Contech Co at the August Engineers Lunch where they will give a brief overview on completing the process of prospective fire alarm replacement, as well as codes recall functions, selective signaling, and proper testing.
