Should the worst happen and fire takes hold in your premises, it is vital that adequate plans are in place to deal with the situation. How quickly a blaze can be dealt with impacts both on the future of the building and, more importantly, the safety of the people inside it.
Automatic fire sprinklers are arguably the single most effective method of suppressing a building fire; they are activated the minute the blaze breaks out, with independent sprinkler heads extinguishing only the source of the heat, rather than dousing the entire building. More than half of fires can be put out by using just a few of the sprinkler heads.
In addition to fighting the fire, your auto sprinkler system will immediately call the Fire Brigade and also sound an alarm warning people to get out of the building.
Fire sprinkler installation is becoming an increasingly popular way of managing risk to buildings - in excess of 70 million are fitted each year - and with good reason. Buildings using sprinklers as part of their fire protection systems have been found to experience just 10% of the costly damage suffered by buildings without an auto sprinkler system and relying purely on the Fire Brigade to reach them in time.
As one of the leading fire protection companies in the UK, we supply and maintain a wide range of safety equipment, including fire alarms and detection devices, dry risers, hose reels and fire sprinklers. The modern fire sprinkler system is an advanced, reliable and unobtrusive part of any building into which it is fitted; often they will go all but unnoticed until they are required.
