Fire Alarm

RAN designs fire alarm systems by understanding a building's occupancies, and incorporating the protection philosophy of management. We customize each design for the building type and use. For example, our engineers have designed specialty unobtrusive systems for historic properties. We can also investigate your current fire alarm system to determine if it still meets code requirements. Our professionals are active in the codes and standards development process and stay abreast of the latest code changes and technology. We also have installation knowledge and marketing experience; we understand the industry's process.

Special Hazard

High hazard buildings require a more customized fire protection system. Explosive or flammable material, highly valuable property, and resources critical to operation are a few factors that pose unique challenges when designing a fire protection system. RAN has designed specialty systems including:

  • Pilot Plants

  • Foam Chamber Design

  • Foam Systems

  • Clean Agent Systems

  • Early Suppression Fast Response Storage Protection (ESFR)

  • Exposure Protection

  • Explosion Calculation

  • Explosion Venting Design

Standpipes

Our engineers have experience in designing standpipe systems that have adequate water supply volumes at the proper pressure. RAN can design Class I, II, or III standpipe systems. RAN designed a Class III standpipe system for 9 of the buildings at Elmira Correctional Facility. A standpipe supply loop was installed that supplied water from a new electric fire pump. Hose connections were placed in basements, attics, and accessible roofs.

An automatic sprinkler system provides one of the most reliable methods available for controlling fires, thereby minimizing property damage and business interruption. We can help you design water suppression systems, including standpipes and all types of sprinkler systems: wet pipe; dry pipe; and pre-action. Properly installed and maintained automatic suppression systems are also very effective for life safety, as they warn of a fire and apply water to control or extinguish the fire.
 

Green Building & LEED Design

RAN provides innovative sustainable solutions that are in compliance with US Green Building Council and LEED’s regulations and standards. We have LEED™ 2.1 Accredited Professionals on staff.
