You’ve invested a huge amount of time, money, and energy into building your business. It’s one of the most important things in your life, and you know that you have to invest in security measures to keep it safe. You probably have alarm systems and heavy duty locks to prevent theft, but there could be a much more dangerous and damaging enemy waiting to devastate your business: fire.
Every year, fires affect thousands of businesses, destroying property and taking lives. In a big, complex building, fires can start at any moment, leaving you little time to escape safely, much less secure any valuables. If you want to protect your business from this kind of devastation, you need more than just an old extinguisher: you need sprinkler services.
Sprinklers Can Save Your Life
It’s a proven fact that you are 80 percent less likely to die in a building fire if there is a sprinkler system installed. Fires are extremely fast-moving events, often going from a smoldering plume of smoke to a massive flame in seconds. While a fire alarm system can offer some valuable warning; that can often still not be enough time to save yourself or your valuables.
This is why a sprinkler system is so valuable. In the time it takes a fire alarm to start beeping, a sprinkler system will drench the fire in a deluge of water, preventing it from spreading. This will cut the fire off before it has a chance to wreak terrible damage on your business.
In addition, you’ll be less reliant on using fire extinguishers to put out the blaze yourself. This is good, because extinguishers can be difficult to operate if you haven’t had proper training, and they aren’t nearly as reliable as an automatic sprinkler system, especially once a fire has started to grow out of control.
