How Many Smoke Detectors Do I Need?

Do you know how many smoke detectors you need for your commercial building? The answer may surprise you. Our team is dedicated to keeping you safe with the best fire protection system.

While we don’t like to think about what we’d do during an emergency, a fire alarm gives you more time to safely evacuate a building in the event of a fire. Keep reading to learn how many smoke detectors you need to stay safe.

How many smoke detectors should I install?

For commercial buildings, you will need to install a code-compliant fire protection system.

Smoke alarms should be installed:

  • Inside office rooms
  • In hallways
  • On every floor

When should I replace smoke detectors?

It’s not enough to replace smoke alarm batteries once a year. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, the smoke alarm itself needs to be replaced every 8 to 10 years. Smoke detectors have delicate components that allow them to detect smoke. However, these internal components eventually wear out over time.

Our team can help steer you toward the best smoke alarms for your home or commercial building. We also offer fire alarm installation. If you have recently installed smoke detectors in your home, it helps to write the date of purchase inside the alarm with a permanent marker.

Do I need wireless smoke detectors?

Ask fire protection companies about installing linked or wireless smoke detectors. Wireless smoke detectors use radio frequency to communicate with each other. This means that if one alarm goes off, they’ll all go off. Unlike wired smoke detectors, you don’t have to deal with the cost and hassle of rewiring your commercial building.

Wireless smoke detectors also give you more time to evacuate. In the past, more furniture was made with natural fibers that took longer to burn. However, today’s furniture is mostly made with synthetic fibers that catch fire more quickly.

We believe in hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. This means making sure your commercial building is protected by a quality fire alarm system. A fire protection contractor will be able to install and test smoke detectors so you’ll be prepared in the event of a fire. You’ll feel more peace of mind knowing that your alarm system prevents significant fire damage and saves lives.

Our team will be able to help you find the best smoke detectors for your commercial building.
