Fire sprinklers are an essential part of your building. Find out why they’re so important in this article that F2M found on BCW.
Hopefully, you will never have to deal with a fire. A major fire at work could have lasting damage to the building, and in the worst case scenario could cost lives. Having the proper safety measurements in place to deal with a fire is essential for yourself and your colleagues. This includes fire sprinklers, which could significantly reduce any damage from a fire and potential extinguish the flames before the fire gets out of hand. In this article, we will take a brief look at some of the reasons why fire sprinkler systems are important.
Installing fire sprinkler valve systems in your building is a great way to improve safety overall and to extinguish any fires in the unfortunate incident that a fire does break out. Depending on the severity of the fire, this could also reduce the damage done by the fire, particularly if your fire sprinkler system is able to completely extinguish the flames.
Sprinkler systems also significantly reduce the amount of damage that a fire can do to the building, minimizing any damage to the structural integrity of the property. There is a common myth that water damage from sprinklers can be just as bad as damage done by a fire, but this is not the case. A fire could cause considerable damage, particularly in the time it may take the fire brigade to arrive. Fire sprinklers are typically activated automatically in the case of a fire, allowing the problems to be minimized straight away. Also, only the sprinklers closest will activate, minimizing any unnecessary use and reducing water damage.
In the event of a fire, sprinkler systems can also give occupants more time to escape by extinguishing flames or reducing the spread of fire. Combining a fire sprinkler system with an alarm is a good combination that should also be common sense. An alarm will alert anyone inside that there is a fire, while the sprinklers will help to put it out. This could help save anyone caught inside and reduce the chance of death as a result of the fire.
