heat detectors manual pull stations audible warn devices and a fire alarm control with remote notification provide early warning of a developing fire a system however does not assure protection against damage or loss of life resulting from a fire Manufacturer recommends that smoke and or heat detec be located throughout a protected premise following the of the current edition of the National Fire Association Standard 72 NFPA 72 manufacturer State and local codes and the recommen contained in the Guide for Proper Use of System Detectors which is made available at no charge to all dealers A study by the Federal Emergency Manage Agency an agency of the United States government that smoke detectors may not go off in as many as of all fires While fire alarm systems are designed to pro early warning against fire they do not guarantee warning protection against fire A fire alarm system may not provide or adequate warning or simply may not function for a of reasons detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot the detectors such as in chimneys in or behind walls on or on the other side of closed doors Smoke detectors may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a build A second floor detector for example may not sense a or basement fire of combustion or smoke from a developing fire not reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors be Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors walls or may inhibit particle or smoke flow Smoke particles may become cold stratify and not reach ceiling or upper walls where detectors are located Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air the detector Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before reach amount of smoke present may be insufficient to alarm detectors Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at levels of smoke density If such density levels are not by a developing fire at the location of detectors the will not go into alarm detectors even when working properly have sensing Detectors that have photoelectronic sensing cham tend to detect smoldering fires better than flaming fires have little visible smoke Detectors that have ionizing sensing chambers tend to detect fast flaming fires better smoldering fires Because fires develop in different ways are often unpredictable in their growth neither type of de is necessarily best and a given type of detector may not adequate warning of a fire detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate of fires caused by arson children playing with especially in bedrooms smoking in bed and violent caused by escaping gas improper storage of flam materials etc detectors do not sense particles of combustion and alarm when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined or reaches a predetermined level Rate of rise heat de may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time For reason the rate of rise feature of each detector should be at least once per year by a qualified fire protection spe Heat detectors are designed to protect property not Smoke detectors must be installed in the room as the control panel and in rooms used by the sys for the connection of alarm transmission wiring communi signaling and or power If detectors are not so lo a developing fire may damage the alarm system crip its ability to report a fire warning devices such as bells may not alert people if devices are located on the other side of closed or partly doors or are located on another floor of a building Any device may fail to alert people with a disability or who have recently consumed drugs alcohol or medica Please note that Strobes can under certain circumstances cause seizures in with conditions such as epilepsy Studies have shown that certain people even when they a fire alarm signal do not respond or comprehend the of the signal It is the property owner responsibil to conduct fire drills and other training exercise to make aware of fire alarm signals and instruct them on the reaction to alarm signals rare instances the sounding of a warning device can temporary or permanent hearing loss fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical If AC power fails the system will operate from standby only for a specified time and only if the batteries have properly maintained and replaced regularly used in the system may not be technically com with the control It is essential to use only equipment for service with your control panel lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a to a central monitoring station may be out of service temporarily disabled For added protection against tele line failure backup radio transmission systems are rec most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inade maintenance To keep the entire fire alarm system in working order ongoing maintenance is required per manufacturer recommendations and UL and NFPA stan At a minimum the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA shall be followed Environments with large amounts of dirt or high air velocity require more frequent mainte A maintenance agreement should be arranged through local manufacturer representative Maintenance should scheduled monthly or as required by National and or local codes and should be performed by authorized professional alarm installers only Adequate written records of all in should be kept cid 18 cid 7 cid 6 cid 7 cid 7 cid 23 cid 3 cid 23 cid 3 cid 3 cid 2 Manuals Online Precautions to the following will aid in problem free installation with long term reliability Several different sources of power can be con to the fire alarm control panel Disconnect all sources power before servicing Control unit and associated equip may be damaged by removing and or inserting cards or interconnecting cables while the unit is energized not attempt to install service or operate this unit until this is read and understood System Reacceptance Test after Software To ensure proper system operation this product be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 Chapter 7 after programming operation or change in site specific software testing is required after any change addition or of system components or after any modification re or adjustment to system hardware or wiring components circuits system operations or software func known to be affected by a change must be 100 tested addition to ensure that other operations are not inadvert affected at least 10 of initiating devices that are not affected by the change up to a maximum of 50 de must also be tested and proper system operation veri system meets NFPA requirements for opera
