Underwriters Laboratory Certification of installation service of fire alarm systems.
System start up and tenant improvement to existing system done by National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET) and California State certified personnel.
One of the many methods that have been used is to package fire alarm equipment for installing electrical contractors. These packages usually provide equipment, and designed shop drawings that show how the control equipment is assembled. Also provided are engineered shop drawings that show how the conduit and wiring are to be installed. Those packages normal include the services of the field technical employees for termination of wiring with the control equipment, and assistance with the testing of all field equipment connected to the fire alarm system. Once this pre-test is performed, PAFA normally comes back to assist with the final acceptance testing of the system with the fire marshal, construction engineer, architect and owner.
