When Fire Strikes, Fast Response Is Critical

According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), fires and explosions cost businesses and schools more than $2.3 billion in property damage each year. Early detection and verification are the keys to limiting fire loss. Fortunately, both are Sonitrol specialties.

Components of Fire Alarm Systems


Control Panel

The control panel is the central point of your fire system. This box acts as a brain by receiving information from sensors and making decisions on how to respond. Without a reliable control panel, you can expect many false alarms, as well as potentially fatal mishaps if a fire does break out.

Our technicians have extensive training in most well-known brands and can install and service the vast majority of systems.


Initiating Devices and Sensors

These devices sense signs of fire by detecting smoke, carbon monoxide levels, heat, flames, or water flow to the sprinkler system. There are two main types: automatically actuated devices and manually actuated devices.

Automatic devices will provide continual monitoring without the need for human interaction. They operate continuously, even if there’s no one in the building. Manual devices will immediately send a signal to the control panel if they’re activated. Examples of these devices include break glass stations, pull stations, and fire alarm boxes.

The number and placement of these sensors will depend on your building and your particular needs. We ensure that you have adequate coverage to identify a potential fire before it becomes a serious threat.


Notification Devices

Notification devices let people know about the fire, both in the building and at the monitoring station. Internal notification devices include strobe lights, sirens, and prerecorded messages telling employees and visitors what to do.

Like initiating devices, the number and placement of notification devices will depend on your particular needs. We can also combine several forms of notifications into one device to save on space and cost without compromising safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most common questions when it comes to commercial fire safety.

How does a commercial fire alarm system work?

A commercial fire alarm is an essential protection for any business. It operates from a centralized control panel and detects fires using a variety of devices located throughout the facility. When one of the devices is triggered, the control panel sends a signal to the Sonitrol Central Station and our experienced operators immediately send the fire department.

What are the main components of a fire alarm system?

The main components of a commercial fire alarm are the control panel that communicates with the monitoring station, smoke detectors, heat detectors, pull stations, horn strobes, and sprinkler systems. A phone line, network connection and/or cellular communicator are required for the control panel to communicate with the professional monitoring station.

What are the different types of fire alarm systems?

The two types of fire alarms are conventional and addressable.

What is the difference between an addressable and conventional fire alarm system?

A conventional fire alarm system does not distinguish which part of the system triggered the alarm. An addressable fire system can determine which device in the field (smoke detector, pull station etc.) triggered the alarm.

Fire detection system regulations are complex and vary depending on how local authorities interpret them. Speak with our experts to design a system that meets your local requirements.
