A study revealed that out of 100 businesses surveyed, only 35 percent were equipped with a functioning fire prevention plan. This is not only dangerous to people, but it is a liability to your company. You are responsible for the equipment in your commercial space as well as the safety of your employees. Having a functioning fire prevention plan is essential to safely and responsibly running a business. Here is a breakdown of the advantages of installing a sprinkler system.
Sprinkler systems reduce property damage. When rising smoke and heat turn on the sprinkler system, you’ll be able to quickly respond to cover your most expensive and sensitive office equipment.
Sprinkler systems are affordable to install and maintain. With the amount of peace of mind and overall protection that they provide, you’ll immediately understand the benefits of having a sprinkler system.
