Commercial buildings with fire sprinkler systems are less susceptible to extensive fire damage caused by fire if they have sprinkler systems. Businesses can use sprinkler systems and smoke alarms together to protect themselves from catastrophic fires.
Property owners can doubt fire sprinkler systems’ effectiveness. Understanding commercial fire sprinkler systems are critical for adequate building upkeep and staff safety.
Fire sprinklers work when no one else does.
During the weekend, there may be a fire break. An explosion may occur in the warehouse corner due to a fire in some cardboard boxes. The sprinkler system spray water onto the flames as soon as the heat is detected. As a result, the fire is already completely extinguished before the firefighters arrive.
Typically, business owners and employees are not available 24 hours a day to combat an emergency if it occurs on commercial property. Sprinkler systems alert them whenever an emergency arises.
Investing in fire sprinkler systems is a wise decision.
A fire sprinkler system installation costs about the same as the cost of installing a new carpet. The price per square foot for new commercial properties ranges between $1.50 and $2.50, and this includes both the installation process and the equipment requirements. Typically, owners of older buildings spend as much as $2 to $7 per square foot to retrofit the property.
Insurance discounts are available when you install fire sprinklers.
Fire sprinkler systems are a significant investment, especially when considering the deductions made on insurance premiums. Commercial buildings that install fire sprinkler systems receive substantial reductions in insurance premiums when they install these systems. Different types of facilities have additional discounts, ranging from 10 to 60% for various buildings.
Accidental fire sprinkler activation is very rare.
Spouting water from sprinklers requires heat. A defect in the manufacturing process leads to 1 in 16 million sprinklers malfunctioning. Sprinklers use heat to activate. If you turn on one sprinkler, the water won’t automatically burst from all of them. Modern sprinkler designs and technologies prevent excessive water damage. In addition, a sprinkler head can control most fires.
Fire is more destructive than a flood.
Fire damage often outweighs water damage from sprinklers, which business owners commonly assume. However, it is the opposite. The damage caused by fires causes millions of dollars in structural damage and significantly loses employee productivity.
Monthly maintenance is best for sprinkler systems.
Despite their prudent installation, fire sprinkler systems require regular maintenance. When urgently, sprinklers cannot function properly without proper supervision. Sprinklers should be checked and tested at least monthly. A corrosion monitoring system will monitor the pipes for corrosion. Moreover, draining should be regularly inspected. Furthermore, low water pressure in a building can make sprinklers ineffective.
We offer four types of sprinklers to fit the needs of every business.
There are four primary sprinkler system options available to commercial properties. It is ideal to use pre-action sprinklers in buildings that house valuables, such as art and records. Fire only causes water to flow through the pipes when a fire is not stored in them. High-rise buildings are ideal for wet pipe sprinklers since they require little maintenance. Water remains in damp pipe systems so a fire can be put out more quickly. For warehouses without climate control, dry pipe systems are the best choice.
