Fire alarm systems are essential for every commercial building in Bethesda, Maryland, and beyond. Without fire alarms, countless occupants would have no idea that a fire is occurring. Without an early warning sign, owners could lose much property, and countless lives could be lost. Thankfully, fire protection technology has continued to develop and improve for many decades. With Fireline as your go-to fire protection company, you can be sure you will get the best fire alarm services in Bethesda, Maryland.
Fireline has been at the forefront of fire protection for three generations. Starting in 1947, John S. Waters opened the business and was one of the first to distribute multi-purpose fire extinguishers and kitchen hood and duct fire suppression systems. In the late 1960s, Fireline became a Pyrotronics fire alarm distributor and continues to provide this type and many others today. Stephen Waters, John’s son, became the next president in 1982 and continued to develop an already thriving national business. His daughter, Anna Waters Gavin, took over the business in 2009 and continues to promote life safety through fire protection.
Fire Alarm Products
One of the most notable projects Fireline has completed is a fire alarm installation at Virginia Tech. After the historic, tragic shooting there in 2007, the school needed a serious security solution. Fireline installed a system that sounded the alarm not only for fire, but also for intruders. Notifier by Honeywell, paired with their ONYXWorks technology, is a surefire way to signal danger to all on the property and direct people to safety. Fireline works hard to maintain their title of Notifier Premiere Distributor.
The Cost of Fire Alarm Installation
A fire alarm system installation for a commercial property is by no means inexpensive, and will require astute budgeting, as with any other commercial property investment. One can break down the cost of a fire alarm system by its parts and labor costs. A fire alarm system consists of a control panel, power supplies, communications systems, fire alarms, strobe lights, and manual pull stations, and smoke and heat detectors. The control panel will be the most expensive piece.
Similarly, one must consider what kind of installation challenges the project will face. The building may be older and have outdated construction methods that do not match with today’s systems. The premises may be campus-sized, requiring more equipment and more consolidation of multiple systems. You might also have plans for extending the building in the future, in which case the engineers will plan for extension-friendly systems in those areas.
