Fire safety tips to protect the home

How To Protect Your Home From Fire

Own a home and you want to keep your loved ones safe and free from harm? Read on to learn more about fire safety.  Domestic sprinkler systems will certainly come to your assistance in the event of a fire but there are other precautions you can take to keep your home safe from fire. Read the following article and it’ll give you a few tips on ways to improve your fire safety and make your home a fire-safe house.

  • Install smoke detectors: Fit a few smoke detectors on the ground level and upper levels of your property. Forewarned is forearmed in the event of a fire so give yourself as much time as possible to react. Install smoke detectors and they’ll trigger the alarm at the first sign of trouble and could help to save your life.
  • Plan your escape route: If you are faced with a blaze it can be a frightening prospect so make sure you plan a few escape routes and go through them with the family. Do a few practice runs so you know what to do in a real emergency and it could stop you from panicking at the time.
  • Buy fire extinguishers or fire blankets: Fires can break out in all areas of the home but the kitchen is one of the hot spots for blazes in the house. So as well as installing sprinkler systems think about investing in fire extinguishers and fire blankets that can be used to douse small flames. Make sure you know how to use them though, don’t be fiddling and fumbling around because this could waste time.
  • Be vigilant with cigarette butts: Make sure you extinguish cigarettes properly and don’t smoke while watching the television if you feel tired. Lit cigarettes are one of the biggest causes of fires in the home, people fall asleep with a cig in their hands and it falls on the sofa and ignites.
  • Unplug electrical appliances: Make sure you unplug appliances when they aren’t in use, especially if you have them plugged into multi-way adaptors. Faulty electrical goods are another major cause of fires so get into the habit of unplugging electrical appliances before you retire to bed.

Mist system was a great solution for our renovation needs and them team at RAD have been great. Always communicated clearly and been on hand to discuss over the phone as needed. Would highly recommend!

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

It has been a pleasure to deal with RAD for installation of fire sprinklers at our site is Sevenoaks. They were fast, professional, working to time and quote, which made it easy to work with them.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
