Elevators Being Upgraded?

If not, it’s not “IF” it’s “When” will Code Enforcement be showing up for inspections.

In the State of Florida Elevator Code Upgrades are being enforced causing property managers, building engineers and Condo Boards in many cases hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Many times the one item overlooked in Elevator Upgrades is bringing the Fire Alarm up to code and capable of handling the newer recall features required once the elevators are brought up to compliance. “Grandfathered” buildings are no longer exempt and older fire alarm systems are usually out dated in terms of new code compliance with newer elevators and other required upgrades. Condominium owners and the boards have been known to update one and not the other, requiring more money to be assessed that they often are not aware of.  CSS suggests having your fire alarm inspected to make sure PRIOR to any elevator upgrade it meets the current requirements. Fire alarm code has been changing and local authorities are enforcing this throughout Florida. Keep in mind any upgrade (such as elevators) on the fire alarms normally mean the entire building needs to be brought up to the current fire code. Every situation varies but we wanted all of our customers to be aware of the potential costs involved.

Protecting the lives of students, general public and property.

There’s nothing more important than the protection of human life. Though public property isn’t as important, security does have a level of relevance especially for business owners. When it comes to life safety, Critical System Solutions has the latest “Emergency Call” products, which are utilized in the case of a person in a life-endangering situation. These Emergency Call or call box device’s primary function is that they are strategically placed in areas the general public can easily access allowing them to call for help should they be in imminent danger. The purpose of “Mass Notification” products is to alarm on a larger scale, public areas where any crowded buildings or schools are put in a life-threatening situation. Public or private areas serving as some sort of destination for a large amount of people on a daily basis absolutely should have these Life Safety Systems.
