That setup they have is barely effective if an EST system designed for a large building to only have 1 initiating device.
thats what Im sayin’!
Is it a sprinklered building? That would explain the lack of initiating devices.
only in the kitchen i think
Yeah, like Kai said, that system ain’t very effective. An EST system is completely redundant.
atleast the one pull is in the dinning room lol
It’s not a large building, it’s just a small building that for some reason had a larger panel installed.
they also seem to always have a trouble
They really should’ve at least have installed some detectors on the ceiling above the kitchen and dining area.
My school has at least one trouble, and it is for the elevator heat detector.
Looks to me like it’s a Wheelock MB-G6-24-R fire bell. These are sometimes rebranded by other companies, such as Fenwal and National Time.
Some of the pulls at one entrance were replaced with Notifier NBG-12’s. The rest of the system remains as-is.
I live in west Omaha which is about 45 minutes away from Lincoln. Max, which Quality Inn is this? There’s 3 in town. I’d love to find a way to save these NAs. Would anyone know how that’s done?? They’re definitely due for an upgrade! My high school & old college rec center (Omaha, NE) had the SAE AV-35s and were replaced before my Freshman year in the early 2000s. Never got to see or hear what they’re liked when activated. And yes, I also have a couple pics of the brochure from SAE. Not my pics, but posted from someone else on another panel. It’s a VERY unique and rare device. I’ve been searching for years and no one in the enthusiast/tech community has one or has tested a building that still had these units!! The Spectronics rebranded 7002Ts would be cool too!
My ideal concept for a replacement would be to fully take the old devices down, put a trim plate over the hole, & then mount a modern alarm on said plate (Wheelock’s RP-R might work, though they’d have to be turned sideways to cover the horizontal hole left behind by the AV-35s).
A trim plate (turned sideways) would definitely be needed when replacing the AV 35s, I’ve seen many trim plates, but not sideways or horizontal. Haha. What I was wondering, is how one obtains an old unit from a building? I’m not a tech or even a collector, just an enthusiast. It would be awesome for someone in the collector community finally have one of these! It’s sort of like the Fire Lite triangular wedge light. Probably from the same era? Late 70s?
Yeah, though I’m not certain if the RP-R would even fit the likely sizable hole that the AV-35 would leave behind.
As far as I know all you can try is asking the owner of the building if you can have them.
Yeah actually. Their design is very 70s-esque, but I’m not sure if their era of manufacture is known.
It’d be a large hole to replace… LOL The dimensions for this unit are 12" L x 8" H. I was wondering if you just asked the owner, odds are likely it’ll just get thrown out. I’m not specifically sure of the release by my guess would be in the 1977-1979 range. Probably after AV-34 light plate. I also know the brochure says it’s compatible for a Federal Signal 950 speaker which I think we released in 1976.
Yeah: could be done with enough work I’m sure though.
I sure hope not: like I said those are supposedly the only known AV-35s in existence, thus it’s imperative they’re saved.
These belong in a fire museum!! I also think it’s imperative that the backboxes be saved for display purposes.
