Fire Suppression Systems
What are Fire Suppression Systems?
Fire suppression systems are engineered to protect your property and valuable assets in the event of an accidental fire. Almost all work by releasing a substance, usually water or foam, designed to extinguish the fire and prevent further damage to your property.
General Fire and Safety offers a variety of fire protection system products, such as clean agent and fire sprinkler systems, as well as fire suppression system inspections, to ensure your property is optimally protected and passes any local, state, or federal codes. Whether you’re looking for an exhaust hood for your new restaurant business or looking to repair your fire sprinkler systems, we’re ready to help.
How is fire suppression different from fire prevention?
Think of your fire suppression system as your last line of defense – this system is in place to minimize hazards and maintain safety should the worst happen and a fire actually occurs. Having a strong last line of defense is imperative and why there are so many building codes related to your fire suppression. Fire prevention systems are your first line of defense- the steps you take to prevent a large fire from ever happening in the first place. These two lines of defense go hand-in-hand. An important aspect of fire prevention is having regular, thorough inspections of your fire safety equipment.
Fire Suppression System Inspections
Optimally, fire suppression systems are equipped with sensors to detect fires as well as alarms to warn anyone on the property of danger. With these features, along with the mechanisms designed to actually extinguish the fire, there are a lot of components that need to be well-maintained in order to successfully prevent the spread of and extinguish a fire. Scheduling regular Fire Suppression System Inspections can help prevent malfunctions of your fire safety equipment in the event of a fire.
