Best Defense Designs, Installs, and Services Emergency Responder Radio Repeaters
The International Building Code 2009 edition as adopted by the State of Wisconsin requires that all new buildings provide emergency radio coverage throughout. Though many smaller buildings in areas of adequate police / fire / ems radio coverage may have adequate radio coverage without any special amplification or repeating, many larger buildings, buildings with metal construction, or buildings with multiple stories may not meet the requirements of IBC 916 / IFC 510 without the installation of a repeater system.
Best Defense can assist you in meeting these codes, which are required to occupy your new building. We can conduct a radio signal site survey and determine where signal enhancement is needed. We'll design and install bi-directional amplifiers (BDA's) for areas that do not meet the requirements of the code for proper coverage. The boosted output of the BDA is wired to multiple antennas, as needed, inside your building which will boost and redirect the radio coverage.
If you're designing a new building, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-237-8379 and have us engineer a system to meet your coverage requirements. Learn more about BDA's by visiting the pages below.
