Advanced Protection for Prestigious Miami High-Rise

7 Dec 2018

A networked, intelligent fire system from Advanced has updated the fire protection in one of Florida’s major real estate developments. 

The system was installed by Alemany Building Solutions at Sands Pointe, an upscale, 29-story condominium located in Sunny Isles Beach on a barrier island in northeast Miami-Dade County. Sunny Isles Beach has been a major real estate development location for luxury high-rise condominiums and hotels since the early 2000s. 

Drawing on 15 years’ experience delivering engineered fire safety solutions in large, complex developments, Alemany Building Solutions specified Advanced’s Axis AX fire system for this high-profile development as the customer specification called for a robust, technically advanced and cost-effective fire detection and audio solution.

Audio is a particular challenge. The local fire codes require a notification appliance in every bedroom, addressable smoke detectors inside every unit, multiple dampers per floor for smoke control, and pre-recorded messages in multiple languages due to the region’s demographic, where the major languages spoken are English, Spanish, and Russian.

The fire alarm system met UL464 requirements for the low frequency 520Hz tone, with intelligent smoke detectors and 520Hz speakers fitted inside every bedroom of the building. The installation benefited from Alemany’s expertise coupled with the ease-of-installation and commissioning offered by Advanced’s system.

The fire system network consisted of four data-gathering voice panels located through the building along with a command center giving oversight and control over the entire system. Using addressable distributed audio amplifiers, the system is capable of providing selective paging through the building ensuring that a single damaged cable won’t affect system reliability. 

With customer care a priority, staff at the Sands Pointe Condominium underwent detailed training following installation to ensure competency and confidence in the system.  

Rey Alemany, President at Alemany Building Solutions, Corp said: “Advanced and Alemany Building Solutions provided the ideal combination of technology and a track record to meet the demanding specification requirements and installation constraints of Sands Pointe Condominium.

“It’s satisfying to complete a job on time and within budget especially when satisfaction is shared between end customer and the installer. In my many years in the fire industry working with market-leading fire systems, Advanced remains superior when it comes to ease of programming and installation.”

Ray Krickmier, VP of Sales at Advanced, said: “As powerful as our products are it takes companies like Alemany who have the knowledge and experience, to apply Advanced to sites such as this prestigious high-rise, in order to take full advantage of what our fire systems have to offer.”
