The Importance of Fire Sprinkler Systems

Fire sprinkler systems are unique because they are so important, but you hope that they are never used. Most commercial properties equip these fire safety essentials. Many are so discrete, you would never know they were there until you need them. They are mandatory in many commercial properties and for good reason.

Here are a couple of reasons why they are so crucial to fires safety.

Protecting People

Protecting the lives of the people inside your building should be the number one priority. When it comes to fire, sprinkler systems provide time to escape. The likelihood of death occurring due to fire is significantly decreased when a property has maintained fire sprinkler systems. It works by activating early enough and starting to fight a fire while occupants evacuate.

Save Property

The firefighting ability of these systems can also help reduce property loss in a fire. Your company will not be out of commission for too long. Professionals estimate that fire sprinklers can reduce property damage by half. Any buildings not protected by fire sprinklers have the potential to be razed to the ground by a fire. While insurance can help, not everything is recoverable. Loss of business during the time after the fire can also be devastating.

Contain Fires

While other fire protection systems like smoke detectors are all important to warn occupants, they cannot fight the fire. Once the system is activated by the heat of the fire, it will work to contain the spread early. They can buy precious time for occupants and firefighters. Sometimes, fire sprinkler systems alone are enough to extinguish a flame before it has had a chance to spread. Other times, it contains enough until the fire department arrives.
