Project Pro le World Ski Championships FINISHES FIRST AT THE WORLD SKI CHAMPIONSHIPS Austria to Canada and everywhere in between the most talented skiers in the descended upon Colorado Beaver Creek Mountain in February 2015 It was third time that the prestigious International Ski Federation Alpine World Ski was held in the Vail Valley this time in the town of Avon second to the Olympics the World Championships is the largest gathering of racers in the world As a result organizers needed to set up a temporary facility accommodate the countless TV and radio broadcasters scheduled to cover the The facility known as The International Broadcast Center was constructed of shipping containers per country Broadcast and lm editing services performed there nearly 24 7 during the two weeks of racing on the very edge of the ski course was another temporary facility called VIP Building for platinum ticket holders Its walls were made of glass allowing to watch the races right outside the windows not required by local code enforcement to install a re alarm system within temporary buildings organizers decided to do so as a precaution concluded it would be a good idea to have some form of re protection in er com WORLD HEADQUARTERS Clintonville Road cid 129 Northford CT 06472 USA 203 484 7161 cid 129 Fax 203 484 7118 er com buildings in case something happens espe with all the electronics in the broadcast facility said Tim Ward NICET IV general at Commercial Specialists of Western structures would be taken down soon the race so organizers did not want to time pulling wires across the buildings support the re alarm system assorted eld devices Coupled with a tight deadline for and tear down it made sense to to wireless smoke detectors of the ease of installation it was the perfect solution to go wireless said Quinn service manager at Commercial of Western Colorado running a system we knew it would be bene because all we would have to do is place bases and do the programming time was imperative however the of labor and materials costs eliminated the wireless system turned out to be cant recently launched its Smart Wireless Fire Technology SWIFT line of wire smoke detectors which were chosen for temporary facilities It a Class A com wireless system using a highly reliable network that integrates with new and ONYX Series re alarm systems Specialists of Western Colorado all the deadlines for the re alarm instal as the wireless project came together With a traditional wire detection sys they would have spent at least two more onsite running wire Such a speedy saved them time and labor the devices cost more according to Ward the amount of time they saved in labor up for more than the additional cost and Quinn both said they were very with the incredibly quick installation of three days for the wireless devices had one of my workers trim out an entire oor in less than 30 minutes Quinn said thing is you can screw them right to the and then you done I honestly thought would be there all day but he came back and said he was done I was really with that install the system Quinn simply had to pro a distinct system pro le for each device the batteries in each install the devices their speci c locations and launch the mesh formation routine which automati evaluates the signal strength between devices and creates all of the primary and communication links for the mesh was my rst time with wireless and I would do it again he added was of the easiest installs I ever been a part Everything came together really nicely the lavishly designed VIP Building the advantages of using SWIFT came play according to Quinn They didn want run a bunch of red re alarm wires all over building where they would be visible In to wireless detectors wireless monitor were used to support re pull stations lauded the system transparency claim it to be cosmetically bene cial said he worked with other wireless sys but has never seen such reliability before is designed to provide maximum reli The SWIFT system proprietary protocol supervised redundant communication to ensure that event data reaches the re control panel Signal strength for each link is evaluated and the initial setup automatically incorporates a safe to ensure that routine variations in the will not disrupt communication a Class A mesh network such as the one by SWIFT each smoke detector and module creates its own communica structure That means communication goes point A to point B through any number of devices creating redundant communi paths With multiple paths to employ system reliability is maximized if one path is blocked a system will redundant pre con gured paths or even new paths to insure that all transmis reach the re alarm control panel facilities with existing NOTIFIER systems to grow the SWIFT detectors offer easy solution for protecting the new space ONYX Series systems work with combination of wired and wireless SWIFT expandability of the system is a huge t Ward said can keep adding on as or small as you want to t your application reliability speed of installation cost and aesthetic appeal SWIFT can really t those facilities where the installation wires is nearly impossible To avoid drilling running wire through concrete decorative historically signi cant structures and areas where asbestos is present the use Smart Wireless Integrated Fire Technology makes sense over 60 years NOTIFIER has been a leader in the re alarm industry Today we are the largest of engineered re alarm systems with over 400 distributors worldwide and regional operations on every continent for the exibility and options your business needs Leaders in Life Safety Technology
