Installing a fire sprinkler system in your Brantford small
business can help save lives and reduce property damage if there’s a fire.
Reasons to Install a
Fire sprinklers aren’t just for stores and schools. Many
people have started installing sprinklers in their small businesses.
That’s because a fire that is both detected early and
quickly contained or put out by a sprinkler system will do less damage to the building.
And a fire that is contained doesn’t block exits or trap people in rooms. Most business
sprinklers can detect heat within a minute, meaning that your sprinkler system
may have the fire out while the Brantford fire department is still on the way.
If you decide to install a sprinkler system in your
Brantford small business, call your insurance provider. It’s possible that you
may save on your home
The Truth About Fire
Sprinklers in Brantford Small Businesses
A common misconception is that when one fire sprinkler
activates, all of the sprinklers in the business will begin to spray water.
This isn’t true. Only the sprinkler above the fire will activate. If the fire
spreads, sprinklers will respond to the heat in their immediate area. And if
you’re worried about a burned meal in the lunch room setting off the
sprinklers, you can rest easy. Fire sprinklers react to heat, not smoke, so
they don’t have as many false alarms as smoke detectors.
Another common concern is the amount of water damage that a
sprinkler system will cause during a fire. When compared to the water damage
caused by the vast amount of water from fireman hoses, the cost is small. Smoke
and flames also cause much more damage if left to burn through your business.
Consider it better to use a small amount of water to put out the fire and
protect your office instead of leaving the fire to spread where it can cause
even more damage.
If your office décor is the reason holding you back, many
fire sprinklers are now designed
for residential buildings, making them
perfect for small businesses as well. The sprinklers are concealed in ceiling
plates or even in pendants. You may have to move paintings or furniture around
the office so your fire sprinklers aren’t blocked but that is a small price to
pay for the added safety.
You should consider adding fire sprinklers to your Brantford
small business’s fire protection plan since they can help save lives and
protect your investment.
