SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Building Protection Systems, Inc. (BPSI), the developers of the first complete Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) detection system to actively and reliably protect buildings, mass transit stations, stadiums, and public events from airborne toxins, announced today that Dallas-based TDIndustries has agreed to become the exclusive Authorized Service Provider and Distributor for Texas and Arizona.
TDIndustries will represent and install BPSI's complete Sentry One line of active CBRN detection and identification systems to protect millions of office workers and critical infrastructure locations throughout Texas and the South.
According to TDIndustries' Rob Crisler, Senior Manager of Building Systems Integration, "Intelligent buildings today should be safe buildings, and we believe BPSI's breakthrough technology is the ideal solution to provide protection to buildings and the people within them against targeted airborne chemical and radiological attacks, or accidental contamination. We are excited to be taking the lead in offering these mission critical detection solutions for our customers."
TDIndustries has completed many high-profile stadium and commercial office projects in the region. Says Greg Eiler, CEO of BPSI, "TDIndustries is the region's recognized leader in mechanical construction, facilities operations, building automation and systems integration services. Partnering with TDIndustries supports our goals of rapidly hardening American businesses and public gathering places against the catastrophic outcome of a CBRN terrorist attack or accidental release."
BPSI's Sentry One Products are US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated and have been protecting Fortune 100 office buildings in the New York market for more than 22 months in the absence of false alarms, an unheard of feat in the detection industry. The Sentry One line also includes the Metro Sentry One for protecting airports and transit stations, Alpha Sentry One for protecting smaller buildings and schools, and the Mobile Sentry One trailer system for protecting the public at secure special events.
Sentry One: First QATT System
BPSI's Sentry One Products are the first complete QATT (Qualified Anti-Terrorist Technology) systems that incorporate proven sensor technology with proprietary firmware and software to detect and identify a toxic attack within seconds. The Sentry One systems automatically activate the desired protocol (such as shutting down the HVAC system in a building or halting train movement through a contaminated station) to protect occupants and isolate the dangerous toxins. Critically, in parallel with the automated protocol activation, the Building Sentry One informs BPSI's Remote Monitoring Center with real-time release data. The Remote Monitoring Center relays the real-time data to first responders to expedite a safe rescue and recovery.
BPSI is the world leader in reliable automated toxin protection systems for public gathering spaces, mass transit stations and buildings. Founded by building systems experts with more than 30 years of building infrastructure experience, BPSI's products are U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated Qualified Anti-Terrorist Technologies (QATT) that quickly and reliably detect, identify and isolate toxic chemicals and radioactive isotopes in the air to protect building occupants and assets.
