The Importance of Bi-Directional Amplifiers, Part 2

The Importance of Bi-Directional Amplifiers, Part 2

Many different cities and states have laws on the books regarding bi-directional amplifiers.

Many different cities and states have laws on the books regarding bi-directional amplifiers. If you do not already have them installed in the name of fire protection, then it is past time to add them to your existing buildings along with making sure that are included in the designs for new construction buildings or full-scale renovations of older facilities.

First Responders Need Them

When fires break out, they quickly spread. Having your employees do what they can to contain the fires with extinguishers, or having sprinkler systems activate will make a difference, but without first responders arriving on the scene in a timely fashion, your entire building could be at risk. In these chaotic situations, conventional communication methods could be disrupted or even destroyed and inoperable. When bi-directional amplifiers are operational, they can facilitate communication as rescuers pull people out of burning buildings and locate anyone else who is missing or trapped and in need of assistance. When incorporating BDAs into a building’s design, it is also imperative to consider the reach of wireless networks, whether it is WiFi-based or not. Distributed Antenna Systems can help boost the signal of two-way radios that these workers depend on in these situations.  

Two-Way Radios

If your business needs to upgrade its two-way radio systems, then look no further than the expertise of Fireline. We can help overcome coverage challenges and determine the right ways to work around obstacles on your campus. The upgrades to the network can be upgraded to meet the needs of your office building – after all, every company is different. Inspection and maintenance for the bi-directional amplifiers, associated radios, and other intercom systems are just as necessary as ensuring that all the fire extinguishers on the premises are easily accessible, do not require recharging, and won’t misfire when used.

Different Applications for Amplifiers

Finally, let’s look at the many different businesses that can benefit from installing bi-directional amplifiers. These systems are so versatile that many various industries can take advantage of them, legally required or not. Hospitals, hotels, and convention centers are densely populated buildings where these amplifiers are essential. Other locations include manufacturing plants, shopping malls, parking garages, apartments and residential buildings, government facilities, schools, sports complexes, airports, shipping depots, bus and train stations, and other such venues.
