Fire Alarms

Construction

One of the many methods that have been used is to package fire alarm equipment for installing electrical contractors. These packages usually provide equipment, and designed shop drawings that show how the control equipment is assembled. Also provided are engineered shop drawings that show how the conduit and wiring are to be installed. Those packages normal include the services of the field technical employees for termination of wiring with the control equipment, and assistance with the testing of all field equipment connected to the fire alarm system. Once this pre-test is performed, Redwood City Alarms normally comes back to assist with the final acceptance testing of the system with the AHJ, construction engineer, architect and owner.
