Are Fire Sprinkler Systems Effective as a Form of Fire Protection?

Let’s face it, money is tight.  Gas is going up, food is going up, movie tickets never seem to stop rising.  You don’t want to waste any more cash on things you don’t need.   So when you think fire sprinkler systems I bet the next thought is, “Is it worth it?”

To answer your question, yes it is worth it.  Fire sprinkler systems are an effective form of protection against fires.

 

DID YOU KNOW…

 

Fire sprinkler systems are actually the most widely used fire protection system today due to the benefits of minimized damage, saved lives, and customizable installation designs.  Think of sprinkler systems as car insurance.  They’re both investments on standby should the day ever arise where you need them.

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF A FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM?

The goal of a fire sprinkler system is to use the right amount of water, in the right location, at the right time. Because of this, fires are usually diffused at the scene of the breakout, rather than growing throughout an office space or home to a dangerous size.

 

HOW MANY FIRE SPRINKLERS DO I NEED?

 

Usually, only one or two sprinkler heads are needed to handle a fire.  But also keep in mind fire sprinklers don’t move around.  So if you install a system in your office and not the office kitchen guess which spot is at risk?  The kitchen isn’t protected in any way thus making it a possible victim of fire damage.

 

BUT DO FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS REALLY SAVE LIVES?

 

YES.

 

Ever hear the old saying, “It’s not the size, but how you use it.”  This verbiage applies directly to sprinklers.  Fire sprinkler systems are very effective at saving lives, as the fire is usually put out before it has time to spread and cause severe injury or death.  This is why so many people spend a few bucks to install them in their home and office.
