(BDA Systems) that Enhance In-Building Emergency Responder Radio Communications and what you need to know from products, new code requirements and design applications.
CSS along with Honeywell’s Notifier UL2524 listed Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) solution offer the industries best UL listed solution.
NEW buildings in Florida have been subject to Emergency Radio Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES) requirements in the Florida Fire Prevention Code for some time.
All existing & newly constructed high-rise buildings are required to have a Radio Frequency Signal Strength Survey completed by December 31, 2019. “IF” required BDA installation by January 1, 2022. Apartments and Condo’s must have installation of BDA “IF” required by 2025.
All buildings with insufficient in-building radio frequency coverage in critical areas of the building must install a ERCES/BDA before JANUARY 1ST 2022. This provides only a short window to install the ERCES/BDA—including retrofitting into existing buildings—into every building with poor in-building radio coverage. All newly installed BDA systems require licensed certified company (CSS) to annually test the system for proper operation per NFPA 72: 9.22.1 (verify code!)
NOTIFIER’s UL 2524-Listed BDA Systems include specific features designed to meet Florida-specific requirements that provide building owners to meet code—in advance of the mandated deadlines. Most BDA Systems are NOT UL listed and do not meet the standards for Enhanced Emergency Radio Communications, did you know that?
CSS is fully certified GROL FCC licensed with BDA certifications, factory trained designers and technicians to meet the UL standards for proper BDA building survey, application, design, installation and servicing.
