March 02, 2020

Smoke detectors, fire alarms, alarm monitoring, sprinklers, pull stations and much more are often things required by law to be installed at a business, but only few know and understand what it all means. Bates Security proudly operates as one of those few! Your business safety is assured by our NICET certified fire engineers that follow the strict codes and regulations set by Kentucky jurisdiction and determine what type of equipment is needed and where it needs to go. 

The purchase and remodeling of a commercial building can be overwhelming when considering all the regulations and necessities to operate. Whether you need a new or replacement fire alarm system for your business, the National Fire Protection Association specifies requirements for emergency communications, signaling and fire detection.

More Than a Smoke Detector

Like all fire detectors, the system detects heat and smokesignaling an alarm if any are indicated. The benefit of a Bates fire system is the integration abilities and the fast emergency dispatch. The alarm should be connected to the sprinkler system as well as other commercial fire suppression systems such as grill hoods in restaurants and water-less fire suppression in IT and server rooms.  When the alarm is triggered, a signal is sent to the monitoring station and fire/paramedics are dispatched immediately.  

Do it Right the First Time

It’s essential to make the right choice when partnering with a Kentucky alarm company.  Always choose a security firm with NICET-certified technicians.  Do it once, and do it right. A good security provider will have the ability to integrate commercial systems. Integrations could be interior and perimeter intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance and IT managed services.
