How Home Fire Sprinklers Can Help To Save Lives

Not many people live next store to the fire station. Consequently, if your property suffers a fire, it’s going to take some time before the Fire Services turn up. One of the best ways to protect your home and the people within it to install a fire sprinkler system. There are a number of ways that sprinklers can help to protect your property. Please continue reading to discover how home fire sprinklers can help to save lives

A quicker response may help to save lives

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 water into the property. This will give you enough time to respond to the alarm and evacuate the property if necessary. However, sprinklers are usually capable of containing or extinguishing a fire completely. If the fire isn’t extinguished, it allows enough time for people to evacuate the building. This allows the fire brigade to arrive before any major problems arise providing another example of how home fire sprinklers can help to save lives.

Less Likely To Malfunction

Unfortunately, smoke alarms do fail, and it’s estimated that around a third of smoke alarms will fail in the event of a fire. Whether it be forgetting to change the battery or even worse, you removed it 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. Sprinkler heads have a failure rate of around 1 in 500,000 which makes them incredibly reliable. Home fire protection systems are one of the best ways to protect your property and can help to save lives.

Sprinklers save lives because 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 as 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 fires can be controlled by the activation of a single sprinkler head. 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?

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.
