City Of Chicago Approves Fikeís CyberCat Fire Alarm System for High-Rise Applications
Fike has received the City of Chicago approval for high rise applications for its CyberCat 1016 and 254 control systems. These UL- and FM-approved fire alarm control panels were first accepted for Class I and Class II applications within the City of Chicago in 2009. This new approval allows for equipment use in high-rise applications (above 80 feet) where two-way voice communications are required.
Double Layer of Protection
Fike announces the expansion of our certified Double Disc product family to include Axius Series Rupture Discs.
Axius Double disc configurations consist of two Axius rupture discs installed within an XL holder comprised of inlet, mid-flange and hold-down components.

Fike Volunteers at Harvesterís Food Bank
As part of Fike’s commitment to serving the community, 30 Fike employees and family members took part in a volunteer event at Harvester’s Food Bank in Kansas City on December 12. After a tour of the facility which provided information about how Harvester’s helps provide 66,000 meals a week in 26 Missouri and Kansas counties, the team got down to work. Fike volunteers helped assemble food packages for the backpack program which are distributed to school children in need of food each week. In two hours Fike volunteers created 1400 food bags packed with healthy and nutritious items. These food packages will be distributed throughout our community to help hungry children. Thanks to everyone who participated helping Harvester’s carry out their important mission!
