As hotels expand and become high-rises, they, naturally, become more difficult to protect. It’s our job to provide maximum protection and a way to evacuate large numbers of people in an orderly manner. Many jurisdictions now dictate that we must use voice evacuation as well as smoke control and smoke evacuation systems. These intricate fire protection measures require highly detailed design documents and coordination with other trades before the tenant can occupy the facility.
Knowing the codes, both local and national, is essential to a project’s on-time completion. ETD creates systems drawings that meet or exceed compliance - systems that you can trust to protect you, your staff and your guests.
All high-rises use a fire sprinkler system, of course. But one must also consider the pump and calculate its dependability and ability to remain functional and move adequate water when a catastrophic event elevates its role to critical. This equipment must provide enough sprinkler system pressure to extinguish a fire on the first floor as well as (perhaps) the 44th floor.
Our factory trained staff give us the ability to provide innovative, cost effective, installation-ready drawings. ETD’s staff of NICET certified designers possess extensive industry experience in multiple-floor fire protection design. They know, first hand, what it takes to install and maintain hi-rise fire systems. With more than 120 years combined experience, we know how to custom design the most accurate, cost-effective and functional fire protection for you - specifically you.
