Does my multi-unit residential project require a fire alarm system?

International Building Code (IBC 907.2.9) indicates that fire alarm systems are required in properties where any of the following conditions are met:

  • A sleeping unit is located three or more stories from above the ground exit level
  • A sleeping unit is located more than one story below the egress
  • The building has more than 16 units

These are only a few of the conditions and requirements. For questions about your project, please contact us for a fire alarm system consultation at no cost.
