As a Las Vegas Fire Alarm contractor, AMFES has experience in a wide array of unique challenges. From minimum 80dBA sound level requirements, to achieving the same with low-frequency sounds, reliable area smoke detection without false alarms, manual fire alarm systems for apartments and motels, to the tallest and largest of megastructures, AMFES has done it - and done it right.
Fire alarms are more than just a collection of smoke detectors. Even though in the overall scope of a project the fire alarm system may represent a relatively minor financial investment, it should not be left until the final stages of construction to consider. Fire alarms are life safety - they save lives. It’s that simple. Sprinkler systems help extinguish fires after they have reached relatively large sizes - and after they have consumed a significant portion of your building. On the other hand, fire detection systems locate “hot spots” as they begin - which means your building staff personnel can extinguish a fire just as it starts with a minimum of risk and damage – before the fire department breaks the door down and gives the entire office a good watering! With proper design and implementation, a fire alarm system becomes part of your overall building protection strategy - your basic desire to prevent and limit damage to your building.
After your fire alarm has been installed, it will require maintenance for the life of the system. Improper maintenance can result in decreased system performance, as well as a decreased lifespan and correspondingly higher costs of ownership. By using a trained, experienced, and certified maintenance company, you maximize the benefits of your life-safety system while minimizing the impact on your business operations – and your pocketbook.
