Installing In-Building Radio Coverage

Often times, when you are constructing a new building or renovating your current building to meet your business needs, the thought of disaster is not running through your mind. However, you never know when something might happen. Installing in-building radio coverage is essential to your plans.

Safety Recommendation

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a recommendation for the installation of these in-building radio coverage systems to ensure not only the safety of those in the buildings but also the safety of the first responders that may have to go inside in an emergency.

The recommendation included the following:

  • Systems effective for large-scale emergencies in buildings with challenging radio frequency propagation environments
  • Can be used to identify, locate, and track emergency responders within indoor building environments and in the field

This recommendation was followed by Annex O added to the National Fire Protection Agency Fire Code which had strict requirements for large buildings.

In-building Communications Installation

Though this may seem like a lot of work, these systems have an easy installation and even less maintenance but can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation. In-building radio coverage systems allow your two-way mobile radios to still be effective despite the many obstructions in larger office buildings by acting as signal booster.
