5 Reasons Commercial Buildings Need Fire Suppression Systems, Anchorage, Alaska

Automated fire suppression systems are indoor sprinklers that detect smoke or fire and disperse suppression agents. These agents can be anything from water, wet and dry chemicals, or gases. Here are several reasons all commercial buildings should have include automated fire suppression systems. 

Why Does Your Commercial Building Need an Automated Fire Suppression System?

1. Are Required by Law

Having sprinklers in your building are mandatory. By law, you must install fire protection systems in all buildings that are larger than 5,000 square feet or more than 55 feet tall. These systems must cover the entirety of the building for maximum protection.

2. Remove Human Error

3. Save Lives

Fire suppression systems can also raise the alarm for occupants to evacuate. They can give people plenty of time to leave the building before it becomes life-threatening. Protect your tenants and their employees by installing a quality suppression system.

4. Protect Property

Sprinkler systems have also been known to cut the potential damage of fire by 50%. Where a whole building could have been lost, a sprinkler system can save it with early warning.

5. Assist Fireman

If a fire is already large and dangerous, the sprinkler system can help contain it until help has arrived. This can make a fireman’s job easier and keep them safer as they extinguish the flames.
