Why A Fire Suppression System Should Be Your Best Friend

You know what’s not fun?

Fire.

You know what else is not fun?

Not Having A fire suppression system.

A fire suppression system is your best friend, and here’s why:

Fire is expensive. A fire suppression system will save you money on your insurance, which can make up for the cost of the system over time, unless it doesn’t, in which case you’re out of luck. But if you have one, there’s a chance that won’t happen!

A fire suppression system makes sure something bad doesn’t happen by putting out the fire before it starts or alerting someone to put it out or notifying emergency services that someone needs to put it out or whatever. You’ll feel safe because you’ll have a fire suppression system. Just Get One!

So, when it comes to fire safety, there are a lot of things to consider. Any office or warehouse style workplace requires the proper training and equipment to help protect employees, customers and guests.
Even so, there is still the risk of potential damage due to fire.

To minimize the possibility of fires in your workplace, we recommend some basic fire safety tips:

Have a dry-gas sprinkler head in server rooms. Because water can be especially damaging to your records, consider having dry-gas sprinklers that will either dilute the oxygen or chemically cool any flames that may be in the room. The dry gas approach will also minimize the amount of smoke and soot damage.

Install a fire alarm system specifically for the data center. Perhaps the worst place to have a fire within a business is wherever the main data is stored. Be it in paper form of electronic, fire can still cause serious damage! To protect your company’s data, be sure that there is a smoke detector that will test the air quality of the for dust particles and know the difference between simply hot air, and actual smoke.
Often times, a defective or inaccurate fire suppression system can be triggered by not being set correctly. When this happens, spaces may be damaged because of the sprinkler system-this can include businesses, homes, and even vehicles. This often leads to water damage that can cause structural damage, mold, and electrical issues.


A fire suppression system is designed to protect people, property and assets. Often times, a defective or inaccurate fire suppression system can be triggered by not being set correctly. When this happens, spaces may be damaged because of the sprinkler system-this is where a sprinkler adjustment comes in handy.

If you have a fire protection system installed in your home or business, that is great! But to ensure it is always working properly, it is important to make sure your system is set accordingly. A sprinkler adjustment can help with this process.

What Is a Sprinkler Adjustment?

A sprinkler adjustment is when a qualified fire protection company reprograms the settings on your sprinklers so they are programmed appropriately for the type of environment you are in. This will help prevent an accidental discharge from occurring due to an alarm or a sensor malfunctioning.

 Food Service Industry

For many, the food service industry is a very lucrative form of business. However, for all the money to be made within the food industry, there are some risks that need to be considered.

Within the food industry, work related fires are more of a risk factor, simply because of the nature of the work. Fortunately, there are a variety of fire suppression steps a restaurant can take.

Wire the exhaust fan to activate whenever you turn on your cooking appliances.
Keep your cooking equipment under the hood and in its appropriate place.
Should there be a fire, activate the fire suppression system before you reach for a fire extinguisher.
Have a fire suppression that is UL 300 compliant.
Use an authorized fire suppression distributer, so you can be certain you are doing your part to protect your restaurant.
Fire suppression is an important part of business management. By being proactive in the workplace, you can do your part to avoid being one of the statistics.

The advantages of a fire suppression system in the workplace are huge. As readers, we hope that you will take what we have said into consideration and ask yourself these questions: Is your workplace protected by a state-of-the-art fire suppression system? Are you prepared?
