A fire can spread out of control and become too big to manage in just a few minutes. In the time it takes for you to react to a fire alarm, a sprinkler system can contain, control or extinguish the fire, protecting your building and saving lives.
Why do I need a sprinkler system?
As well as saving lives, sprinkler systems can prevent costly damage. Every week, for example, 20 schools are destroyed or damaged by fire.* They can also enable you to make more cost-effective use of your premises as building and fire safety regulations often allow parts of a building to be used which would be deemed unsafe without a sprinkler system. Also, fire walls do not always have to be built to as high a rating if a sprinkler system is in place. Some insurance companies, too, offer reduced premiums for houses and buildings that incorporate sprinkler systems.
