BPSI adds chemical detection system to New York landmark

SAN FRANCISCO, June 28, 2016 Building Protection Systems, Inc. (BPSI) announced today that they have successfully brought its Building Sentry One™ Chemical Detection System online at another undisclosed downtown Manhattan Iconic landmark building.

The extensive multi-sensor Sentry One™ platform was engineered as a retrofit project and seamlessly plugged into the existing Building Management System (BMS) and security platform without major changes to the existing infrastructure. "There is a mounting and sustained drive by thought-leading building owners to add protections against the huge risks associated with a Targeted Toxic Industrial Chemical Attack or Radiological Dirty Bomb release. It is akin to the early adopters of building sprinkler systems prior to the tragic Triangle Factory Fires in 1911 where it took an actual fire and large loss of life to push owners to adopt building sprinkler systems." says Greg Eiler, BPSI's President at BPSI. "We are also seeing a security shift to include physical fixed detection at potential target locations alongside the focus of cyber-threats to protect data. The basis of this shift is the very real awareness of the vulnerability of a building's air handling system and the lone-wolf scenarios targeting innocent people via an airborne toxic release into the HVAC," Mr. Eiler continues.

"We are very concerned with the current state of unrest in the world today and the focus of harm to the western world and our way of life. These detection protections answer deeply to several of our security concerns," says an undisclosed security expert about the installation. "The safety and security of people within their work environment is paramount. With detection, proven reliability and relative simplicity of the system is very important because false alarms cause a 'cry wolf' outcome. BPSI's type of detection goes well beyond traditional air monitoring and has easily replaced less reliable first generation detector systems that yielded high false alarm rates," says Mike Welden, SVP of Homeland Security for BPSI.
