Fike Fire Alarm System Approved for High-Rise Applications in Chicago

CHICAGO — The city of Chicago has approved Fike CyberCat 1016 and 254 fire alarm control panels for high-rise applications where two-way voice communications are required.

“This approval highlights the importance Fike places on continually creating innovative, code compliant solutions for diverse and demanding applications,” says Bill MacDonald, director of business development, Fike.

The city initially approved the control panels for Class I and Class II applications in 2009. The UL- and FM-approved CyberCat fire alarm/voice system has a built-in back-up amplifier integrated with its existing amplifier. As a result, true critical component redundancy is achieved for a fraction of the cost of installing a complete back-up voice amplifier, according to the company.

“The city of Chicago recognizes the compliance of the intelligent CyberCat systems, which offers detection and protection solutions to buildings 80 feet above grade according to the fire protection standard,” says Kevin Montgomery, Fike global product manager, alarm systems.
