It is very likely that every person has or is going to encounter a fire in some way during their lives. For some it’s a minor experience that is dealt with quite easily, such as an overheating appliance or a street bin fie. With these types of incidents, they are usually identified early and the fire is put out immediately. However, for many others, fire poses a much greater threat. Fire consumes commercial premises and homes very quickly, ruining property and taking lives.
Automatic Fire Protection
You will need the most effective form of automatic fire suppression for the maximum fire protection. You should have a method of automatic extinguishment that protects you and your property at all times. Automatic fire sprinklers are so far the only proven means of automatic fire protection today.
Automatic Fire Sprinklers
Fire sprinklers react to heat and they are connected to a water pipe network. When dangerous gasses and the heat from a fire reaches the fire sprinkler sensor at about 68 degrees Celsius, the sprinkler will attack the fire and eliminate the danger. If you are not on the property at the time of the fire, you do not have to worry, the automatic fire sprinkler system is also capable of sounding the alarm and notifying the emergency services. However, in most of the cases a fire sprinkler system will have extinguished the fire before the fire services arrive.
Cost Effective Automatic Fire Suppression
Often, the very first thought people have when thinking about purchasing a fire sprinkler system, is that it is extremely expensive. However, a fire sprinkler installation can cost just 1% of the cost of your building, which is a small price to pay when it comes to the protection of your staff or family. By making this investment you will also be offering a reduction on your insurance policy by up to 15%, this of course depends on your insurance company as well.
