Project: Full Fire Alarm System Installation and Replacement
Challenge: Falcon Engineered Security Solutions, Inc. (FES) was contracted to replace and upgrade the existing life safety system for this school located in New Rochelle New York.  This existing building system that was in place was discontinued and panel parts were very difficult to attain to keep the system in total working order as well as compliant with new and local codes. The existing system was causing a lot of unwarranted alarms and started to become very costly to repair and to get necessary parts for.
Solution: FES replaced the entire system with all new addressable FCI-E3 Voice system and new detection and HVAC system as well as incorporated new audio visual system which replaced the old bell system per code.  Another big challenge was to provide 100% coverage at all time during the installation. By doing so we had to engineer it to accept share point and ensuring that the building protection was never compromised.  FES was able to complete the entire replacement in the facility within 3 months.

Project: Design/Engineering/Installation of New Life System
Challenge: FES was contracted to work closely with the owners to design, install and fully engineer life safety system at the College Point, NY location.  It was crucial that FES work extremely close with the plumbers to design the water system which was a huge part of this spa. The spa is loaded with mist rooms, pressure baths, whirlpools, saunas, heated floors and indoor/outdoor swimming pools. This location needed safety and early problem notification, monitoring water pressures, temperatures and steam leakage.
Solution: The spa has a number of special designed heated areas such as igloo-type spaces that were designed for water-based therapeutic healing.   We installed an FCI-E3 control panel was tied to the HVAC system, elevator system and entire sprinkler systems throughout the building.  We programmed an integral announcement system and full supervisory alarm system.
