BDA Systems

Is your facility prepared for emergency situations? During an emergency, reliable radio signal coverage is absolutely critical to every first responder!

In many buildings, radio signals are adversely affected due to factors such as low-e glass, concrete, metal, RF interference, and below ground structures. Any of these can cause poor in-building radio signal coverage and/or dead spots.

If emergency first responders lose communications, the result can be deadly. Firefighters, EMS, law enforcement officers, and other first responders all rely on two-way radios for communication in everyday operations.

The International Fire Code (IFC) and the NFPA both require an “approved level of radio coverage.”

Does your building have Dead Spots? Is your facility in compliance with local jurisdiction regulations?

The Solution: Enhance your in-building radio frequency signal coverage with a Bi-Directional Signal Booster & Distributed Antenna System (BDA). Comba Signal Boosters and BDA Systems are designed and professionally installed by Paladin to provide a complete integrated solution to clients of all sizes.
