Re: Horn/strobes in restrooms

Went to the other supermarket today went into the restroom. The Edwards NA in there doesn't have a shiny piezo on the left. That one is a remote strobe.

my school has speaker strobes in every restroom
It is typically for buildings with speaker/strobes to have speakers/strobes in multiple person restrooms. This is so the voice can be clearly heard inside the restroom.

Re: Horn/strobes in restrooms

Sorry I got the brand wrong. Edwards NA with the running man and fire label. Plus, the Edwards remote strobes have the grilles on them, just the piezo is taken out. You would know it's a horn/strobe if you can see the shiny piezo on the left. If not, then it's a strobe. Just was at one of the super...

Re: Has anyone ever brought a fire alarm to school

I brought my Simplex 4906-9104 strobe to school for a conceptual physics project that I was doing, I want to know if anyone has done the same. Good thing is was just a strobe. Bringing a fire alarm with a horn to school and setting it off could get you in trouble. The school could mistake it for th...

Horn/strobes in restrooms

The local Lowes has a Wheelock AS horn/strobe in the restroom and two local supermarkets have Gentex horn/strobes with the running man in the restrooms.

Re: What are some things that the General Public misconceives about Fire Alarms that drive you crazy?

I am also guilty of that because in elementary school I REFUSED to go to the bathroom because I thought the 4903 strobes were alarms. Thinking back on it, I realize how dumb that was. :lol: My elementary school had no remote strobes. They had Wheelock 7004ts. The bathrooms either had a Wheelock 700...

"When bell rings call fire department."

Did anyone here used to think fire alarms were all only local and didn't notify the fire department when they went off? I did when I was younger. Those sprinkler bells all over the place that said "when bell rings call fire department" reinforced that belief. However it is probably good to call the ...

I wonder if the panel is in trouble.
If there even is a panel
The store does have a panel in the front and a pull station.

Re: Strange fire alarm upgrade at the local Aldi storr

That Aldi store opened up in 2015. I remember when the store first opened. The previous fire alarm system with the Advances was only there for 3 years before the store underwent a remodel and changed the fire alarm system. Before the building was redesigned for the Aldi grocery store there was a fur...
