Elevator Recall System Requirements
Elevator recall systems are crucial for fire fighter service. It is important for your system to be properly tested and working under the right conditions laid out by the law.
NFPA 72 and the California Building Code require that every elevator that travels vertically 25 feet or more, every associated elevator lobby or entrance area and associated machine room include smoke detectors for elevator recall purposes.
The smoke detectors in elevator lobbies and machine rooms set off fire fighter service recalls. The system is also usually connected to the building fire alarm system.
A detector must be installed within two feet of a sprinkler head or waterflow switch at the top of the elevator hoistways. This is to ensure that the detector shuts off elevator power in the event of a fire in order to avoid danger from a wet elevator braking system and electric shock. Fraker Fire Protection Inc. technicians perform testing and repairs of these systems in compliance with all NFPA and fire department requirements.
