Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers offer the highest degree of fire protection and are critical in saving lives and property.Installing a fire sprinkler system in your building is crucial for safety against fire accidents. This system is specially designed by expert engineers to get activated automatically if a fire breaks out.

Commercial fire sprinkler systems are one of the best methods of fire prevention out there today. Here are a few benefits associated with commercial fire sprinkler systems.

SAVES LIVES

Fire can start from anywhere in the property and spread in an unexpected manner. It can block doorways or pathways making it difficult for people to escape. When you are running a business, it is your duty to keep all the visitors and employees safe.Every year, there are about 15,000 people injured during fires with around 3,400 people killed. There's no guarantee that you'll be able to prevent all injuries and deaths during a fire in your commercial building, but the chances of injuries and deaths are much lower with a commercial fire sprinkler system.

REDUCE PROPERTY DAMAGE

Once a property catches fire, it can be destroyed completely within minutes depending on the nature and size of the building. The faster a fire spreads, the higher the risk for the surrounding areas as well. Keep in mind that approximately 44% of system failures were due to a lack of maintenance, so even though a sprinkler system exists in your building, it doesn’t mean you can ignore the required system maintenance schedules.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Once installed, fire sprinkler systems are relatively low maintenance and are designed to last for as many as 20 years. All you need to do is get an inspection done annually, to ensure that it stays in good working condition.

COST EFFECTIVE

Fire sprinkler systems are very cost-efficient and installing one in your business can save you money on costly repairs and damages in the event of a fire while also reducing your insurance rates. Once you have a sprinkler system installed in your business, your insurance company will likely lower your rates. Your insurance rates remain low as you continuously service and maintain your sprinkler system keeping it up to date ensuring that it's abiding by local guidelines, rules, and regulations.

Despite all these benefits, a survey of over 100 businesses revealed that only 35% had any kind of fire prevention plan. Too many business owners overlook the importance of a sprinkler system and go without.

Fire Drills In The Workplace

Your first interaction with a fire drill was probably at school when everyone would follow the teacher and wait for instructions to be given. Ask any school-age child about fire drills, and they will probably tell you about doing a mock emergency evacuation during the school year.

Fire Alarms

Every 23 seconds, a fire department responds to a fire in the United States and building occupants have on an average of less than 3 minutes to escape a fire. There are approximately 7,410 structure fires in eating and drinking establishments each year, according to a NFPA report based on data between 2010 and 2014. While the frequency of commercial fires has decreased slightly over the last few years, the actual cost of fire related property damage has increased dramatically.

Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are among the most effective and affordable means for protecting your business from fire damage. Many fires begin small, at a single location, and can often easily be suppressed using the appropriate type of fire extinguisher. This proactive response can save people and property from harm or contain the fire until emergency response professionals arrive.
