3 Safety Factors for Installing Commercial Fire Alarm Systems

If you own a commercial building, one of your primary concerns is making sure it is legal for occupancy. However, before you choose a commercial fire alarm system, you’ll want to consider the long-term costs of picking the least expensive option. A licensed fire protection contractor can advise you on the best commercial fire alarm system for your money so that you don’t have to pay fees for false alarms or settlements for personal injury lawsuits.

Below, you will find our top three fire safety factors you should look for when shopping for a commercial fire alarm system.

Early Detection

Did you know that the size of a fire doubles every 30 seconds to 1 minute? This is why it’s important to alert your building’s occupants and the local fire department as soon as a fire breaks out. Early detection means that your new commercial fire alarm system will be able to detect smoke, rapidly increasing temperatures, and other fire signatures.

Early detection fire alarm systems are also capable of alerting the local fire department at the first sign of a fire. Not only does this help increase occupant safety, but it also reduces the amount of fire and smoke damage. In the event of a fire, time is of the essence.

Maintenance Alerts

The newest designs for commercial fire alarm systems allow you to identify which smoke detectors need to be cleaned. This cuts down the cost of commercial fire alarm systems maintenance because you don’t have to waste time inspecting smoke detectors that are clean. A fire alarm installation contractor will be able to help you pick the most appropriate alarm system for your building.

False Alarms

Fire departments hold you responsible every time they are called out to your building on a false alarm. This means that you will have to pay a fine if your commercial fire protection system isn’t working properly. To prevent having to pay expensive fees, we recommend installing a quality fire alarm system that won’t be set off by dirt covering the sensor or even steam.

You’ll also want to consider the effect constant false alarms will have on your building’s occupants. Consider the story of the boy who cried wolf. The first time the fire alarm system activates, you can expect fast response times for occupants safely exiting the building. However, constant false alarms will not be taken seriously by residents. In fact, they may even start ignoring the fire alarm, which can have deadly consequences in the event of an actual fire.

To protect yourself against personal injury lawsuits, we recommend installing a commercial fire alarm system that will only go off if there is an actual fire. No one wants to be responsible for the injuries or deaths of others.

If you are interested in our commercial fire alarm installation service, please feel free to give us a call at 800-968-2871. The fire protection contractors at Fire Pros are dedicated toward helping customers safeguard their commercial properties against significant fire damage.

Technician left while alarm panel was still in alarm mode. When asked about it replied that it wasn’t his job. Forgot to turn on valve on dry sprinkler compressor causing system to lose pressure and activate, flooding the attic. Did not drain water in compressor.
