Project Profile Finishes First at the World Ski Championships a Austria to Canada and everywhere in between most talented skiers in the world descended upon Beaver Creek Mountain in February 2015 It the third time including 1989 and 1999 that the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships was in the Vail Valley this time in the town of Avon second to the Olympics the World Champion is the largest gathering of ski racers in the world a result organizers needed to set up a temporary to accommodate the countless TV and radio scheduled to cover the races The facility as The International Broadcast Center was out of shipping containers one per country Broadcast and film services were performed there 24 7 during the two weeks of racing on the very edge of the ski course was temporary facility called the VIP Building platinum ticket holders Its walls were made glass allowing spectators to watch the races outside the windows while staying warm enjoying refreshments inside a not required by local code enforcement to a fire alarm system within the temporary build organizers decided to do so as a precaution concluded it would be a good idea to have form of fire protection in the buildings in case happens especially with all the electronics the broadcasting facility said Tim Ward NICET IV manager at Commercial Specialists of Western structures would be taken down soon after the so organizers did not want to waste time pulling across the buildings to support the fire alarm assorted field devices Coupled with a tight for installation and tear down it made sense turn to wireless smoke detectors of the ease of installation it was just the solution to go wireless said Joe Quinn manager at Commercial Specialists of Western running a wireless system we knew it be beneficial because all we would have to do place our bases and do the programming time was imperative however the amount of and materials costs eliminated with the wireless turned out to be significant a recently launched its Smart Wireless Inte Fire Technology SWIFT line of wireless smoke which were chosen for these temporary fa It a Class A commercial wireless system using highly reliable mesh network that integrates with new existing ONYX Series fire alarm systems of Colo met all deadlines the fire instal as the project came together quickly With a tradition wire detection system they would have spent at least more weeks onsite running wire Such a speedy saved them a lot of time and labor the wire devices cost more than the hard wire according to but the amount of time they saved in labor made for more than the additional cost and Quinn both said they were very pleased with incredibly quick installation period of three days for wireless devices had one of my workers out an entire floor in than 30 minutes said nice thing you can screw them to the deck and then done I honestly we would be there day but he came back and said he was I was really impressed with that install the system Quinn simply had to Program Insert Install Launch evaluates the signal strength between all and creates all of the primary and secondary links for the mesh was my first time with wireless and I would ab do it again he added was one of the installs I ever been a part of Everything came really nicely a the lavishly designed Building the aesthetic of using SWIFT into play according to They didn want to a bunch of red fire alarm all over the building they would be vis In addition to wireless wireless monitor were used to sup a Class A mesh network such as the one used by each smoke detector and monitor module cre its own communication structure That means goes from point A to point B through number of these devices creating redundant com paths With multiple paths to employ the reliability is maximized if one communication is blocked a transmission will use redundant pre paths or even establish new paths to insure all transmissions reach the fire alarm control panel fire pull stations installed throughout Quinn lauded system transparency claiming it to be beneficial said he worked with other wireless systems has never seen such reliability before SWIFT is to provide maximum reliability The SWIFT proprietary protocol uses supervised redun communication paths to ensure that event data the fire alarm control panel Signal strength for communication link is evaluated and the initial setup automatically incorporates a safe margin ensure that routine variations in the environment will disrupt communication a facilities with existing NOTIFIER systems planning to grow the SWIFT detectors offer an easy solution for the new space NOTIFIER ONYX Series systems work with any combination of wired and wireless devices expandability of the system is a huge benefit Ward said great to be able to expand and provide You can keep adding on as big or small as you want to fit your application reliability speed of installation cost savings and aesthetic appeal the advantages of SWIFT can really those facilities where the installation of wires is nearly impossible To avoid drilling and running wire concrete decorative ceilings historically significant structures and even areas where asbestos is the use of Smart Wireless Integrated Fire Technology just makes sense www notifier com swift more comprehensive information NOTIFIER Smart Wireless Fire Technology by
