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.
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.
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.
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.
