Mircom Group Acquires Signalink Technologies
Fire-Link®II, Signalink’s flagship system, is a complete audibility upgrade solution. The signaling device sends fire alarm signals through the building’s existing AC power electrical wiring. The device has a fully addressable and supervised 87 dBA in-suite device “mini-horn” that can be installed anywhere there is an AC outlet.
The Mircom Group of Companies, Vaughan, Ontario, acquired Signalink Technologies Inc., located in Kelowna, B.C. Signalink operations will continue in Kelowna and its products will be branded under Signalink, member of the Mircom Group of Companies.
Signalink is a Canadian company founded in 1999 and, according to the company, is North America’s only manufacturer of UL/ULC listed, wire-free, fire alarm notification and audibility upgrade systems featuring power line communications. Signalink’s platform is designed to provide building owners with a cost-effective alternative to audibility retrofit and modernize their facility’s control infrastructure. The first product line, called Fire-Link®, is a fire signaling system targeting high-rise and multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs).
Signalink’s Fire-Link II system utilizes technology that communicates through the building’s existing AC electrical wires, minimizing installation labor and upgrading costs generally associated with a fire alarm audibility upgrade. Signalink and its distributors have implemented thousands of successful installations throughout Canada and the United States, the companies stated.
“Signalink and Mircom have had a long association and this acquisition expands Mircom’s proprietary product offering in audibility solutions for fire safety. We are excited about the opportunity to continue marketing this unique product family throughout North America,” stated Mark Falbo, president of the Mircom Group.
