Conventional Fire Alarm Systems Installation Service

Conventional Fire Alarm Systems Installation Service

With conventional fire alarm systems, we will install a single control panel, connecting multiple components to it for a network of other fire alarms. Each of these components will send a signal in the case of a fire, however, since it's all connected to one control panel, you won't immediately know where exactly the signal comes from.

Addressable Fire Alarm Systems integrators

Addressable Fire Alarm Systems Integrators

For larger facilities and ones that require more precise fire detection, we opt for addressable fire alarms. With this system, alerts are sent to separate components, so it’s more convenient to determine where the fire is located.

FAQ About Fire Alarm Integration in Chicago

How do fire alarm systems work?

That’s a great question! Multiple components connected to fire alarms across a property are installed and linked to single or multiple control panels, sending an alert from their location to the panel of when they detect a fire. This will set off a signal so that people are made aware of the threat.

What are the different types of fire alarm systems?

At Forbel, we rely on the two main fire alarm categories - conventional and addressable. With a conventional system, the fire alarms are linked to one single control panel, which is ideal for smaller spaces where a more specific direction on where the signal is coming from isn’t necessary. 

On the other hand, addressable systems are more clearly linked to various panels, helping determine what room the alert is coming from. This is ideal for larger properties where a fire may not be as easy to trace.

How much does it cost to install a fire alarm system?

The final price of your fire alarm system in Chicago will depend on your unique space and needs. Understandably, the larger space, the more intricate the fire alarm system and, thus, the higher the price. However, if you’re looking for fire alarms for a small space, like a boutique, it will have a much lower cost. Our experts will work to provide an estimate in advance, so you know just what you’re looking at in terms of price.

How long will a fire alarm last?

Fire alarm systems don’t necessarily last for one single, set amount of time. While they will be secure and well functioning, our team will provide any maintenance and updates you may have to ensure you have ample fire detection year after year.
