Banning Contracting Services knows that the increasing usage in cellular communications results in low quality signals; dropped connections; poor office, parking garage, and airport reception; and a lack of coverage that decreases productivity.

That is why Banning provides Distributed Antenna Systems, or DAS, as one of our system solutions. DAS is a network of separated antenna nodes connected to a transport medium, allowing for better coverage and reliability with a reduced total power. By using the DAS system, Banning can provide cost-efficient coverage with the best technology available.

IP Surveillance / CCTV

Banning Contracting Services provides cost-effective CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) systems designed to meet your specific requirements for surveillance, image clarity and live/archived event documentation. We utilize the latest technology in Video Management Systems by building custom, high-end server-storage solutions to NVRs (Network Video Recorders), and DVRs (Digital Video Recorders), combining them with IP cameras to integrate high-quality software and hardware with communications over IP connections to meet your surveillance needs.

Independent Third Party Testing

Independent verification to component vendor’s specifications as well as a contractor’s installation is paramount to maintaining a more reliable local area network. Testing channel performance at the time of installation does not guarantee component compliance and may not be sufficient to ensure an error-free network. Specifying a cabling system from a vendor can help to ensure that you get the most from your network.

(Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) is a continuous air sampling system in which air sampling tubes and devices are installed throughout a facility to detect the earliest sign of a potential fire hazard. The air is constantly monitored for any spark, smoke, or particulate matter that may be associated with an impending life safety, property, or other air quality threat. Aspirating detectors can warn a facility manager on multiple levels of threats and can aid in the prevention of loss of life, property, and productivity. The sensitivity of laser detectors does not degrade over time and the early warning system will assist facilities monitoring personnel in initiating appropriate response and mitigation measures.
