Things to consider before installing a Fire Sprinkler System
Fire sprinkler systems can save lives and your property. They are a critical part of any building's safety plan, but they may not always be necessary. Here are three things to consider before installing a fire sprinkler system in your home or business:
Fire Sprinkler Protection
Fire sprinkler systems are required by law. Fire sprinkler systems are a great way to protect your property from fire hazards. These automatic fire protection systems can help save lives and property in the event of a fire emergency. By installing a fire sprinkler system you can significantly reduce the risk of injury or loss associated with fires in buildings where people live or work.
Qualified Installer in your Area
When shopping for a fire sprinkler system, look for a company that is licensed and insured. Look for a company that has a good reputation. There are companies with experience with the type of building you have, which can help them understand how to best meet your needs. Also, look for a company that has experience with the type of fire sprinkler system you want installed in your business.
Inform yourself about Fire Sprinkler standards
It's also vital to know the standards set by your local government or building department. Most fire codes are based on NFPA 13, a standard that defines how a sprinkler system is installed and maintained. This includes things like how many sprinkler heads are required per square foot floor space and where they should be placed. The next step is to check the manufacturer's installation instructions since they may differ slightly from NFPA 13.
Fire Sprinkler System can save your Life
A well-designed and installed fire sprinkler system can save your life and even help improve property value. The insurance industry has a vested interest in promoting the installation of fire sprinkler systems because they reduce the risk of injury, property damage and loss due to fire. They also save lives.
A properly sized and efficiently operating automatic fire sprinkler system can act as an early warning device, allowing you precious minutes to escape safely during a fire emergency. Fire sprinklers are designed to control fires before they get out of control. The heat from a quickly spreading fire is absorbed by the water in the pipes, causing it to expand rapidly. This expansion creates pressure that activates valves releasing water into open areas where it snuffs out flames before they spread further through dry tinderbox conditions created by wood frame construction elements like wood ceilings or wooden staircases that make up much of modern day homes
