Why You Should Install a Fire Sprinkler In Commercial Buildings?

Given how fast a fire can spread most property owners don’t realise how susceptible their building is. Now more than ever installing a fire sprinkler is the first line of defence from an outbreak of fire. There are many reasons why you should install a fire sprinkler in commercial buildings and we have listed them below.

 

Heat reactive

 

A fire sprinkler is different from a smoke detector, and many people will know how a smoke detector works. They can be set off when there is no imminent danger of fire, such as through cooking or smoking for example.

 

Fire sprinklers will react to heat as opposed to smoke so that misconception that a person’s home or business will be covered in unwanted water is wrong. The fire sprinkler will only go off if there is substantial heat to trigger it and normally the levels of heat needed are generally caused by an actual fire.

 

Minimal water damage

 

Most people’s idea of a fire sprinkler is from the resulting water damage once the fire has been extinguished, ruining products or important documents. While this reaction is understandable the truth is that any damage done by the fire sprinkler is minimal. Fire sprinklers are designed to use only a limited amount of water to extinguish it, which is a lot less than firefighters would use.

 

Cost-effective

 

When deciding on whether to install a fire sprinkler in your commercial building you must consider what the cost would be of recovering from a fire if you didn’t have one installed. Most modern-day fire sprinkler systems are very affordable, and you may find that your insurance premiums will reduce because of having one installed - this again means additional savings for the business.

 

Helps to save lives

 

Firefighters are constantly advocating for people to install fire sprinklers in the home or commercial buildings. As well as saving the business structurally they will also save lives.
