What Is a Life Safety Contractor?
A life safety contractor is a company that offers full-service integrated solutions designed to protect life and property. If you own a business in the Mid-South, you benefit greatly from hiring a local life safety contractor as opposed to a nationally based company. Quick turnaround time on job requests, lower service costs, greater accountability and timely emergency services are just a few of the benefits you can expect.
State Systems, Inc. is a local life safety contractor based in Memphis with state licenses to operate in the entire Mid-South region, including Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi. We serve customers in a variety of industries, including commercial, industrial, retail, manufacturing, health care, education, government, distribution and food services.
Here’s a look at the integrated life safety solutions we offer our customers.
Fire Alarm Systems
There’s no more effective way to evacuate a commercial building than to activate a fire alarm. This makes a properly installed, maintained and monitored fire alarm critical to the life safety system of any Mid-South business.
When your employees have the power to put out a small, contained fire, they can prevent it from growing into a real threat. We offer several fire extinguisher services, including sales, installation, training, inspections, replacements and more.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
Simply put, fire sprinklers save lives. In fact, it’s virtually unheard of for a person to be killed in a fire if the building is fully sprinklered and the system is functioning properly. Clearly, sprinklers should be a part of your building’s life safety system.
Fire Suppression Systems
The purpose of automatic fire suppression is to extinguish fires in hazardous areas without human intervention. Restaurants, industrial facilities, body shops and server rooms are all appropriate places for this life safety system. With a response time of mere seconds, automatic fire suppression can extinguish a fire before it threatens the lives of building occupants.
Exit and Emergency Lighting
It’s easy to panic during an evacuation, especially if the lights go out. However, battery-operated emergency exit lights help maintain calm during an evacuation so everyone makes it out safely.
Every part of your fire protection system requires regular inspections to remain compliant and ensure functionality when you need the system most. State Systems, Inc. offers these inspections to improve building safety. You can also pursue web-based inspection reporting for a simplified online process that replaces slower, costly paper-based inspections with real-time data and on-demand reports.
Certain industries require you to provide CPR training for your employees. Whether you prefer to have training conducted at your Tennessee, Mississippi or Arkansas location, or at our facility in Memphis, we can provide this important life safety training.
Technology & Low Voltage Systems
Sound & Communication
Business productivity often relies on fast, effective and concise communication. The proper design and installation of a sound and communication system is also required to deliver emergency notifications to building occupants at a moment’s notice.
Paging & Intercom Systems
When you operate a large business, it isn’t always efficient to deliver messages in person. Paging and intercom systems allow for instantaneous communication for improved productivity and often life-saving response times.
Is your business currently protected by the watchful eye of a video surveillance system? Not only does such a system protect your building from vandalism and theft, but it also keeps your employees and customers safe. If an incident does occur, security camera footage aids in litigation.
The offerings available from a life safety contractor wouldn’t be complete without an intrusion detection system. Completely customize your system to include whatever components are most important to you, including motion sensors, window and door contacts, panic switches, and more.
CCTV Network Systems
A closed-circuit television system is a popular method for watching live feeds of entrances and key areas in your business, as well as recording and later retrieving security camera footage. This type of system is vital for protecting life and property at your business location.
The key to benefiting from your life safety systems is to integrate them into a single network. This brings all the technology in your building together for an optimized, easy-to-use system that increases security and reduces stress.
