Public Safety - Fire Code Compliance
In-Building Signal Testing and Design

New IFC 510 and NFPA 72 Fire Codes mandate construction greater than 30,000 square feet must achieve adequate indoor radio signal levels for Public Safety / First Responder systems before a Certificate of Occupancy is granted to the building,

Prior to construction, SCS reviews the building plans and designs a  network using BDA's (bi-directional amplifiers) to boost in-building 700/800 MHz signal strength.  SCS designs, installs, and services the industry's most efficient and cost-effective solutions.

SCS tests and certifies in-building signal levels for all Public Safety / First Responders systems to determine if current service levels comply with fire code requirements. Testing is performed using a combination of advanced signal collection equipment and Fire Responder's control channels.


Documentation Includes:

  • Signal booster (BDA) planning, design, and documentation
  • Test locations with time/dates
  • All frequency bands tested
  • Transmit and receive signal level and quality
  • Radio signal "heat maps" per floor and 3-D building
  • Training, support, annual re-certification, maintenance and 24/7 monitoring

Initial Consultation
  • Present in-building coverage requirements and options
  • Define scope of work
  • Identify milestone dates
  • Agree on roles and responsibilities
  • Discuss budgetary requirements
  • General recommendations for testing methodology and system design


Site Survey and Signal Testing
    The location of the transmitters, possible obstructions, and building materials determine signal strength and quality for in-building coverage. If a building is in the planning phase or under construction, SCS measures the surrounding area and uses advanced 3-D software modeling tools to simulate the predicted in-building coverage.

    • Review architectural plans
    • Visually inspect the facility (unfinished building is ok)
    • Perform signal testing using SCS advanced data collection tools

    SCS goes well beyond the minimum "grid test" which requires only 20 test locations per floor.
    • SCS testing provides a new measurement every second, gaurenteeing thousands of test points per floor
    • More accurate data allows SCS to engineer systems that use the minimum amount of equipment to ensure Public Safety compliance...we don't overbuild
    • Saves up to 50% compared to poorly engineered configurations
