Why Should Fire Sprinkler Systems be Installed in Hotels?

fire sprinkler systems hotels

Although buildings over 11m tall are now required by law to install fire sprinkler systems, some hotels don’t reach these heights and therefore don’t require sprinklers. Despite this, they are incredibly effective and reduce deaths by up to 100%. Fires are common in the hospitality industry due to the number of electrical appliances plugged in and the use of kitchen products such as ovens. By installing reliable sprinklers, you can control the damage caused to your property and save lives in the process.

Sprinklers have already shown their worth in properties such as high-rise flats and office buildings, improving effectiveness by 99%, saving lives and keeping property damage to a minimum. If you’re a hotel owner looking to install sprinklers to protect your staff and guests, here are a few reasons why it could be the best decision you make for your business.


Reducing Damage to the Property

In July 2019, a Premier Inn in Bristol was almost completely destroyed by a devastating fire that cost millions in damage. The Fire Protection Association (FPA) found out that losses from fires add up to around £4 million, which is incredibly detrimental and can cause some hotel chains and businesses to struggle. For over 100 years, fire sprinkler systems have been utilised in factories, warehouses and offices alike, keeping people safe and reducing damage. The same principles can be applied to hotels and B&B’s. Only the sprinkler heads closest to the fire will activate, reducing water damage too.

Once the fire begins to spread, it can quickly become out of control. By having a reliable sprinkler system installed into your hotel, you can stop the flames from spreading to uncontrollable heights, protecting the structure and interiors of your property. From residential sprinkler systems to commercial sprinklers, every single property will feel the benefit. To find out more, please visit us here.


Safer Evacuation

Hotels usually keep hundreds of people safe in their rooms throughout the night. They’re normally just a place to get your head down if you’ve been out and about during the day, so guests expect to feel safe and protected in their rooms. Sprinkler systems work to both alert people of a fire and extinguish it, giving people plenty of time to evacuate the premises. With so many people inside hotels, people can leave safely whilst the sprinklers work to put the fire out, just in time for the fire department to arrive.

Without sprinklers, smoke alarms will be activated to alert people of the blaze, but nothing will be in place to extinguish the flames. This can leave people in danger as they escape, especially people who may have mobility issues. A reliable sprinkler system will work with the alarm to crucially save lives, making sprinklers a great choice for hotels. They can even come with concealed sprinkler heads to blend in with the interior decor of the rooms.


Installation is not Disruptive

Installing a working sprinkler system is not as disruptive as some people may think. It can be carried out during working hours and the hotel won’t even need to shut. However, some rooms may be out of bounds until the system is installed, but this shouldn’t affect the running of the hotel in general. It’s a pretty pain-free process, and once the sprinklers are in, they will work for years to come.

It is important to regularly maintain your automatic fire sprinkler system, and have it checked at least once a year by a trusted third party. However, this cannot be the company that installed your system in the first place. You can speak more about the fire installation process with us directly by calling 01892 680 090. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have to make the process as understandable and smooth as possible.

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.

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.
