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
Without fire protection services, there is a lot of room for human error. Fires can go undetected for a long time and might not be put out efficiently by people. However, a suppression system can be working to protect people and property even before anyone is aware of the problem.
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.
