Why Your High-Rise Building Needs Clearwater BDA System Installation

The bigger the building, the more tech is needed for a complete Fire & Life Safety strategy. If you don’t know about Clearwater BDA system installation, we’re here to explain why you need it.

When you were a kid, did you ever put a drinking glass on the wall to help you hear the conversation happening on the other side? The tech behind this eavesdropping trick has to do with “acoustic coupling,” which helps sound waves travel through the wall. Bi-directional amplification (BDA) is a similar concept with much more complex tech. Not sure what all this BDA talk is about? That’s okay because DynaFire is here for your first Clearwater BDA system installation lesson.

What Is BDA?

Bi-directional amplification of emergency signals is the solution to the problem that arises when radio signals cannot penetrate walls, floors, or glass. If there is a fire on the 10th floor, will first responders be able to communicate from way up there to their colleagues on the ground? Not likely – at least not without a BDA system.

DynaFire’s bi-directional amplifier system is a high-powered, band-selective radio signal booster system that can be designed and customized to meet all public safety frequency band ranges. Essentially, we can place receivers (that are also transmitters) at strategic locations throughout your facility that catch and send on emergency signals.

What Buildings Need A BDA?

Requirements vary by location; you should check with your local municipality or Fire Department to see if your building requires a BDA system. Generally speaking, however, if your facility falls into any of these categories, you need us for your Clearwater BDA system installation:clearwater bda system installation

Facilities like those on the list are typically large and have many floors, glass, and perhaps even an underground garage. The concrete and glass make it near impossible for first responders to communicate effectively on two-way radios in an emergency.

In the same way your home internet booster helps your WiFi signal get from your router throughout your home, our Clearwater BDA system installation allows emergency signals to extend from your building’s top to bottom and end to end.

DynaFire’s Deliverables

When our FCC GROL-certified technicians perform a site survey, they will measure your building’s current downlink and uplink signal strengths. The survey results will be submitted to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), which will determine if a BDA system is required.

If the AHJ determines that a BDA system is necessary for your facility, our technicians will design a unique Clearwater BDA system installation that meets the needs of your individual property. Our designs and installations comply with government mandates and are code-compliant.

Our deliverables don’t end when your installation is complete. Because we are a full-service Fire & Life Safety organization, we can offer maintenance, testing, and inspection services to keep your BDA system working properly. 

You And Your High-Rise Building Need DynaFire

If you’re someone who knows about BDA or, as we mentioned, this may be your first lesson, we’re here to help. If your high-rise is a hotel, apartment building, office building, or another multi-floor structure, DynaFire can outfit it with the best in fire safety solutions. 

And our services extend well beyond BDA solutions. We offer a full suite of Fire & Life Safety solutions, including fire alarm systems, fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguisher testing and maintenance, building retrofit solutions, and many other products and services.
