Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are one of the most important tools to fight against property damage and injuries due to fires. A fire alarm is usually the first warning to building occupants and to fire departments that a building is in danger. Without adequate fire alarm systems, fire departments and the people inside a building may not be able to respond and evacuate before it is too late.

If you own a building, it is important to ensure that your property and any occupants are adequately protected from the risks of fire. To learn more about the fire alarm system that is right for your property, contact the Austin fire alarm installation professionals of Ace Fire Equipment by calling 512-835-2020.

Types of Fire Alarm Systems

There are two general types of fire alarm systems:

  • Automatically-activated. These fire alarm systems are set off automatically by signs of fire such as smoke, heat, or toxic fumes.
  • Manually-activated. A person must pull a lever or take other action to set off the alarm and warn other occupants of the fire.

Automatic fire alarm systems monitor the environmental changes associated with fires and combustion. If these conditions exist, the system may automatically sound an alarm, alert emergency services, or activate further fire protection systems.
