Understanding Commercial Fire Suppression Might Save Your Pompano Business

A fire sprinkler system can take out a fire before it gets a good start.

Commercial Building Fires In Pompano Beach

Fire sprinklers can control a fire while the fire is still small. According to the National Fire Protection Association, some type of sprinkler was present in an estimated average of 49,840 (10%) reported structure fires during 2010 to 2014. Automatic extinguishing systems (AES) are designed to control fires until the fire department arrives.

Your commercial building is required to have a fire suppression system. In a fire, that system might just save lives, spare contents or possibly even your entire business. A fire sprinkler system can take out a fire before it gets a good start. There needs to be a good fit between your sprinkler system and the kind of property it’s protecting.

What Qualities Do All Sprinkler Systems Have in Common?

They’re all:


Which fire sprinkler system is right for your commercial building?

There are two main categories:

Wet Pipe System

A wet pipe system is comprised of steel pipes, which are filled with water at all times. This can be a good or bad thing. The biggest advantage of these systems is that when activated they start working immediately. They are the most reliable due to the simple design. They are also the easiest to install and require the least amount of maintenance. A big disadvantage is that they could freeze in an inadequately heated environment, causing the sprinkler pipes to burst. If a false alarm occurs, there is also a risk of the sprinklers causing unnecessary water damage.

Dry Pipe System

The pipes in a dry pipe system are filled with compressed air. This type of system is a little slower to distribute the water due to water not being in the pipes at all times. Since the dry pipe system has less risk of accidental activation, they are ideal for buildings with very valuable or irreplaceable items. These systems require more maintenance and are more difficult to install, making them more labor-intensive and expensive. However, there are several variations of the dry pipe system which add extra layers of protection against accidental activation.

The right type of fire sprinkler system can make all the difference to the well-being of your employees and the building within which they work. If your property sustains water damage from your sprinkler system after a fire, you may want to hire fire damage restoration experts to handle all of your fire sprinkler cleanup needs.
