Does My Business Need to Replace or Upgrade Its Fire Alarm System?

Fire Alarm SystemsDoes your business need to replace or upgrade its fire alarm system? Since fires are a danger that could happen at any moment, and can destroy valuables, property and people’s lives, a fire alarm system is an integral part of any commercial building– a must!

Age of System

Since fire alarm systems don’t last forever, sometimes they need upgrading and other times they need to be fully replaced. How old is the system at your business? Has it been working well or does it bother people with nuisance alarms? Most people have no idea how old their building’s fire alarm system is, let alone that it might need upgrades or replacing– but here’s the deal: systems should be replaced every 10 years from the date of their manufacture according to the National Fire Protection Association.

Fluid Code Requirements

As the years go on, local code requirements and ordinances might change, which means upgrades or replacements are necessary in order to be in legal compliance with local laws and rules.  If buildings change– adding on elevators, changing room sizes, etc.– upgrades should be done. Life Safety Consultants sells replacement parts if you’re happy with your older model and don’t want to buy a brand new system. Check out what Life Safety Consultants sells, here. That said, if your system is so old that replacement parts aren’t available anywhere for it, then it’s time for a replacement.
