Technology continues to impact the fire alarm and communication industry, with advances requiring integration with other building safety technologies, which in turn calls for upgrades. Is smoke detection required alongside installation of a new A/C system? Are combination fire/smoke dampers required in the new fire-resistance-rated barrier?

This webcast will provide insight into when a system upgrade should take place, and address key ways to prepare for the process.
