Fire Alarm System Design

Fire Alarm Ssytem DesignOur designers have over 60 years combined experience in building effective fire alarm systems. We feel we can find the right balance between protection and price, while meeting all local codes.

We promise to NEVER design a system that’s more than you need (by code), unless you ask for it. Our specialized CAD software stores device information with the drawing, so modifying prints and recalculating circuits is a snap. We will work with the city officials on plan approval and scheduling the final inspection, so you get your Certificate of Occupancy as quick as possible.

Our design turn-around time is days or weeks, rather than MONTHS like most of our competitors. We will provide project manuals at the end of every project, and as many submittals as you need to engineers/architects. We will provide an electronic copy of your final (as-built) drawings on CD-ROM or flash drive at the end of the project.

Our niche is apartment/condo complexes, but we’ve also designed systems for office buildings, retail centers, high-rise, campuses, and health care buildings.

We are also the ONLY local company trained and certified in WIRELESS fire alarm systems for commercial buildings. These systems present a unique opportunity and flexibility in the design of our systems.


Here is sample CAD drawing from a recent project, to illustrate the level of detail we include in our plans.
