Kinetix is built on the belief that our fire and life safety services must be timely, accurate, and reliable. Everything we do, from the people we hire to the way we operate is all geared towards making our customers highly satisfied with their experience.
Fire alarm systems, often referred to as fire detection systems, are required in most commercial and industrial facilities. Their primary purpose is to notify and evacuate the occupants of a building in the event of a fire. Fire alarm systems contain various components and are usually automatic or manual.
There are many different types of fire sprinkler systems installed in today’s facilities; most commonly found are wet pipe sprinkler systems and dry pipe sprinkler systems. Fire sprinkler systems are required to be installed by many building codes as well as some insurance providers for facilities.
Fire pumps provide water pressure to sprinkler systems throughout a facility. In order to ensure sprinkler systems have the capacity to control a fire in the event of an emergency, fire pumps must be monitored on a regular basis. The most common types of fire pumps are electric and diesel.
Fire and smoke dampers are an integral part of the fire & life safety program at your facility. In most cases, they are required to be inspected and tested every four years and every six years for healthcare facilities. Kinetix will survey your facility, and locate all of your existing dampers.
Kinetix also provides design, installation, consulting, repair and alterations. The Kinetix management team has over 80 years of combined experience in fire alarms, fire sprinkler, fire damper, and fire pump systems in addition to essential industry credentials and recognition. Customers may access reports and support 24/7 online and through our hotline so you are never without the information you need – when you need it.
