Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) for Chewy in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina

VeriDAS Installs IFC 510 Fire Code Compliant Public Safety Distributed Antenna System in North Carolina for New Chewy/ PetSmart Distribution Center

The new 700,000 square foot Chewy/ PetSmart distribution center in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina (near Charlotte, NC) required an IFC 510 fire code compliant Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) - also called a Public Safety Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). VeriDAS Technologies was selected to design, install and certify the code-required in-building BDA signal booster system to extend, amplify and optimize the Salisbury-Rowan County public safety radio system frequencies inside the new industrial facility.

PROJECT

RF (radio frequency) signal coverage testing showed the newly constructed Chewy/ PetSmart distribution center in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina (near Charlotte, NC) needed a Public Safety Distributed Antenna System (DAS) installed to allow first responders’ radios to operate inside the expansive 700,000 square foot facility. VeriDAS Technologies worked closely with the building developer, Fire Marshal and public safety radio system administrator to design a signal amplification solution that would meet North Carolina Fire Code requirements, the construction timeline and Chewy’s grand opening deadline. Thanks to impressive coordination and support from the City of Salisbury and Rowan County, VeriDAS was able to quickly design, install, certify and secure AHJ approval on the Public Safety DAS. The new Chewy distribution center was able to complete construction and begin operations without delay.

SCOPE

The new 700,000 square foot Chewy/ PetSmart distribution center in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina (near Charlotte, NC) required an Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) in order to comply with state fire code. VeriDAS was selected for the project that included:
