Every alarm has its system of wires and cables, and fire alarms are no exception. Fire wire enables you to route communication between your fire alarm and its corresponding accessories, and ensures that all of your peripherals are running on the same connected wire. This is important, because even in this age of boundless wireless technology, hardwired fire alarm systems remain the most dependable. When disaster strikes, you don’t want to run the risk of disrupted wireless communication.
Finding the Right Cable
We have a variety of options to choose from, and we realize that it can be confusing to find the right cable. Just take a look at the box or packaging that your accessory (i.e. a smoke detector) came in, or consult the manual. You should be able to find out the number of conductors as well as the gauge size. The conductors are your wires, and the gauge refers to the thickness. The higher the gauge, the smaller the wire will be.
More is Always Better
We offer wires of different lengths to suit every need and project. Only you know how much you’ll need for your particular fire alarm system, but as a general rule of thumb, it’s always a good idea to purchase more than you need. Here you’ll find options ranging from 500 to 1000 feet, capable of covering all the space you need and more. Use some now, and save the rest for later. Our fire alarm system cable is all 18 gauge (the industry standard), and is available in 2-or-4-wire sets. Finally, all of our fire wires are stored in convenient boxes to prevent frustration and save time. These are just some of the distinctions that set us apart from the competition.
