How Home Fire Sprinklers Can Help To Save Lives

How Sprinklers Save Lives

Most people live don’t live next store to the fire station, the likely hood is if your property suffers a fire, it’s going to be too late by the time they turn up. Once of the best ways to protect your home and the people in it is with a fire sprinkler system. There are a number of ways that sprinklers can help to protect your property.

Quicker Response

Sprinkler Systems

On most occasions it will take around 10-20 minutes and sometimes even longer, for the fire brigade to turn up. Once they’ve set up their equipment and started tackling it could be too late for your property and worse still the people in it. Whilst firefighters know they need to respond quickly they can’t control the external factors stopping them from getting to your property.

By using a sprinkler system you remove that problem completely. If a fire breaks out, hot air or smoke will start to reach the ceiling which is when the system will kick in. Once the system recognises there’s a fire it will activate and start spraying out water into the property. This will give you enough time to respond to the alarm and evacuate the property. Sprinklers are usually capable of containing a fire completely, on occasions where they aren’t it allows enough time for people to evacuate and the fire brigade to arrive before any major problems arise.

Less Likely To Malfunction

When a fire is so severe it’s likely the alarm will fail, and it’s estimated that around 14% of alarms will fail when a fire breaks out. Whether it be forgetting to change the battery, failure because of the fire or even worse you’ve took it down because it goes off when you’re cooking, then you could be in serious danger.

Concealed SprinklersHome sprinkler systems are designed to near enough look after themselves and they have a very low failure rate. It’s estimated that around 1 in 500,000 systems a year fail, and this is usually because of a fault or defect that’s occurred between annual checks. Home fire protection systems are one of the best ways to protect you and your property.

They Don’t Have To Wait For You

Sprinklers are designed to respond automatically in the event of a fire, there’s no waiting around for someone to set them off. Without a system installed, it’s likely you’ll rely on your alarm or a fire extinguisher. Even if you have a fire extinguisher, do you know how to use it? Extinguishers can be difficult to use and it’s not as easy the TV makes it out to be. Even using a fire extinguisher to try and put out a fire can put you at risk. Having a system that automatically responds to the fire will allow you enough time to get the fire under control or evacuate the property, before it becomes too serious.

Using A Sprinkler System In Your Property

Approximately 90% of fire can be controlled by a single sprinkler head, so imagine what a whole system can do. With a quick response time and not having to wait for the human factor to respond, both you and your property will be kept safe. Whilst they might be more expensive to install compared to a fire alarm they are worth the cost in the long run. Can you really put a price on your life?

Diligent & a very professional team. A joy to deal with. Will certainly be calling on them to help with many more future schemes.
