The Advantages Of Having Fire Sprinklers Installed In Your Commercial Property

When you own or rent commercial property in Downtown Costa Mesa, it is important to protect it as much as possible. Installing a fire sprinkler system is a good way to safeguard your business against fire damage. Fire mitigation technicians advise that fire sprinkler cleanup is much quicker and easier to do than cleaning up after the more extensive damage caused by a prolonged fire and the means necessary to put it out. Your insurance company may offer you better premiums for a building protected by sprinklers, too.

What Sprinklers Do

The main job of a sprinkler system is fire suppression. When a fire breaks out at your place of business, the sprinkler nearest the fire activates to extinguish it. The process is as follows:

  • The heat from the fire causes the temperature of the air to rise.
  • The fire sprinkler senses the intense heat.
  • The sensor bulb bursts when temperatures rise above 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • This burst releases the plug, freeing the water.
  • Many gallons of water are unleashed to put out the fire.

In most cases, the water from the sprinkler is enough to subdue the fire entirely. This protects your building much more efficiently than waiting for firefighters to arrive.

What Sprinklers Don’t Do

Despite popular lore, a fire in one area does not set off every sprinkler in the system. Only the sprinkler nearest the fire is activated. It is also hard to trigger a sprinkler accidentally. Because they are designed to respond to high temperatures, sprinklers are not tricked by the heat from the computers beneath them or by cigarette smoke. Therefore, your property is not at high risk for a malfunctioning sprinkler.

A fire sprinkler system can save your business and get you back up and running in a short amount of time. It can lower both the expense of remediation and the cost of insurance. It is a good idea to install fire sprinklers in your building.
