LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is a terrific season to enjoy recreation and relaxation, but it also brings with it a heightened risk of property damage or injury due to uncontrolled fire – particularly in Southern California. Fortunately, residents of the Los Angeles region are never far from the premier fire protection company – Global Fire Technologies, Inc. For installation of essential fire prevention equipment, as well as central station monitoring, the Los Angeles-based company has proven to be an invaluable resource. With over 100 years of combined experience in fire safety, it should come as no surprise that their team provides the kind of superb fire alarm installation Los Angeles' elite business owners expect.
Fire alarms and smoke detectors are a minor investment that can lead to dramatic long-term savings. In many cases, they can even save lives. The most common type of system is an ionization smoke detector – known for being inexpensive and very effective at detecting even small amounts of smoke produced by flames. In nearly every case, a fire alarm will consist of two basic parts – a sensor to detect smoke, and a loud alarm – sometimes accompanied by a flashing light – to get people's attention or wake them up.
Ionization smoke detectors use an ionization chamber and a source of ionizing radiation to detect smoke. When smoke enters the ionization chamber, it disrupts a small electrical current that runs through the chamber. The smoke detector is designed to sense this drop in current, setting off the life-saving alarm. An alternative smoke detector is the photo-electric option. These are more sensitive to heat than smoke, and both types can be either single or multi-station. Single station smoke detectors are found in residential homes, while multi-station detectors are often installed in residential and commercial buildings as part of a complete fire alarm system.
While the mechanics of a smoke detector are relatively simple, considering the lives and property at stake, it is vital that they be installed with meticulous precision and operated with expert skill. That's why, throughout Southern California, so many property owners and building managers have come to count on the team at Global Fire Technologies, Inc.
As a fully licensed and bonded central station monitoring facility, Global Fire Technologies, Inc. ensures the properties they tend to are optimally designed to meet all local, state and federal restrictions and codes. This can be invaluable in avoiding expensive and time-consuming problems down the road, as Los Angeles has unusually rigorous standards for fire safety, and the costs of renovation or reinstallation can quickly rack up.
While their team provides exceptional fire alarm installation, it's important to remember that this is only one of many services offered at Global Fire Technologies, Inc. They are also proud to provide inspection and installation of necessities like sprinkler service, extinguishers as well as various fire alarm parts to optimize your building's fire prevention system.
