Every year, fires claim thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of Euros in damage. From restaurants to data centres, fires are a threat not only to the immediate lives of those involved in the fiery infernos, but to the family and friends of those afflicted by those flames as well. For this reason alone, the necessity to have a quality fire suppression system in the corporate workplace becomes obvious.
The ideal fire suppression system will detect a fire for you and effectively minimize the damage incurred from the flames and heat by deploying the necessary fire suppression chemicals to extinguish it. Fire suppression systems also give warning and notice to those in the vicinity that a fire has broken out, thus in turn, notifying everyone that the premises should be evacuated.
When looking to purchase a fire suppression system you may be looking to replace a current one based on the old water sprinkler systems that were so popular over past years, or you may be looking to implement a new one if the building is new and perhaps has none at all. If you're still relying on the old-style type of water sprinkler fire extinguishing systems, it's a no win situation for today's needs. Almost all businesses today rely on electronics in order to conduct business transactions, support payroll and a whole list of other business functions. If a fire breaks out and your computers are saturated with water and destroyed, you may save the building your business had operated in, but your business is worth little to nothing, because your operations are down. This is one of the many reasons why the removal of the old-style water based fire extinguishing systems is in such demand in just about every other industry.
Today's fire suppression systems use various chemical compounds to extinguish flames and preserve property.
You want systems that are tested based on UK, European and international standards and proven worthy of implementation by years of tried use, You need an implementer that can provide discharge tests as necessary and will provide you with fire suppression products that have been tested by international testing organizations. Not only do you want a company that can provide you with proven fire suppression equipment, but you want a company that understands the design of such systems and stands behind their installation with quality maintenance and support. Only by selecting the right fire suppression equipment along with the right fire suppression implementer can you then feel safe and secure in knowing that if a fire were to break out at any time, the lives of your employees are safe and that your business is equally no more at risk.
