US Company Protects HQ Building With Air Monitoring Technology

Building Protection Systems (BPSI) : 02 February, 2012  (Application Story)
Complying with the US SAFETY Act requirements, air monitoring technology from Building Protection Systems is being used to detect potential toxins in the atmosphere at a US company's headquarters
US Company Protects HQ Building With Air Monitoring Technology
Building Protection Systems (BPSI) has announced that another thought-leading building owner has chosen BPSI’s proven next generation Alpha Sentry One toxin detection system to protect critical executives and employees at an undisclosed headquarters building in the Midwest.   The US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated technology reliably monitors the fresh air entering the building to guard against an accidental toxic release or targeted terrorist attack.  First deployed in commercial buildings in 2008, BPSI’s chemical detection systems have now been operating in excess of 1,000,000 instrument hours with Zero false alarms – unheard of in the detection industry.

“The safety and security of our people is paramount.  We chose BPSI because of the proven reliability and relative simplicity of their system,” says company Security and Life-Safety Manager who asked the company not to be disclosed for security purposes.  “Far beyond traditional air monitoring, this system has easily replaced our less reliable first generation detector system and seamlessly integrated into our command and control protocol.  This is a great example of how security and life-safety work together to protect the people and operations at our critical business facility.”

“Thought-leading companies like this one are key to advancing infrastructure protection here at home, making the workplace safer for everyone,” says Greg Eiler, BPSI’s President.  “While much of the security industry has shifted focus to cyber-threats to protect data, this customer recognized the very real risk of innocent people dying due to their building’s vulnerability to an airborne toxic release.  BPSI is committed to keeping people breathing safe air whether they are in office buildings, out at a sporting event, or waiting for their train home.”

BPSI’s Sentry One Technology was deemed a "designated technology" in June 2008 according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. SAFETY (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) Act of 2002. The SAFETY Act is intended to provide critical incentives for the development and deployment of antiterrorism technologies by providing liability protections for sellers and buyers of qualified anti-terrorism technologies.
