Bi-Directional Amplification Now Available
The Challenge: A Weak Radio Signal
The Solution: Signal Amplification
First responder radio signal and communications can be severely affected by building construction, building size, and other factors. It is vitally important that our emergency personnel have the needed ability to communicate in the event of an emergency. The good news is that there is a solution!
BDA is an Emergency Radio Communication System that provides reliable communication radio transmissions between first responders inside a building and emergency personnel outside the building.
To offer BDA services, it is mandatory for a company to be FCC licensed as well as BDA certified. Sunland Fire has acquired these important BDA credentials as well as the required and needed equipment to properly conduct surveys, installation, testing, and certifying of BDA systems.
Check with your local code authority to ensure your building is compliant!
BDA Service Includes
- Site Surveys
- Maintenance & Service
- Project Management
- Post-Installation Analysis
- Testing and Certification
If a building does not meet the required minimal signal strength of -95db for both incoming and outgoing signals, the only effective solution is the installation of a signal booster (Bi-Directional Amplification).
Today’s codes, like the IBC 2015 Section 916, IFC 2015 & 2018 Section 510, NC Fire Code 2018 Section 510, NFPA 72 2010 & 2013 Editions, NFPA 1221 and UL2524, require all buildings to have approved radio coverage for emergency responders within the building based on the existing coverage levels of the public safety communication systems of the jurisdiction at the exterior of the building.
