Why you need a fire sprinkler system

When there is a fire emergency in your home or business, the best defense may be a fire sprinkler system.

Being proactive and preparing for a fire may be what keeps your family and your co-workers safe. In addition to smoke alarms, which alert people to the potential of fire, a fire sprinkler system is the first line of defense when a fire breaks out.

If a fire begins while no one is in the structure, everything can be lost within minutes. Installing a fire sprinkler system can limit the amount of damage by extinguishing a fire before it can spread.

When people are in the structure, a fire sprinkler system can provide them valuable time to escape the dangerous situation, helping to save lives.

Many people are reluctant to get a fire sprinkler system in their home because they believe it will act as a false alarm and cause costly damage to their home. This line of thinking is false however. 

Temperature triggers fire sprinklers as opposed to the presence of smoke. Cooking in your kitchen or smoking in your house, both activities that can cause large amounts of smoke, will not trigger your sprinkler system.

Also, fire sprinklers are not simultaneously triggered. Fire sprinkler systems activate individually. When the bulb inside one of the sprinklers bursts from intense heat, water begins to flow from that sprinkler. Water does not flow from other sprinklers until those bulbs are broken.

Fires work quickly and everything can be gone in a matter of minutes. A fire sprinkler system may be the difference between a minimal amount of damage and losing your house or business.
