Look around you, does the office you go to every day have adequate fire protection? As experts in commercial fire protection systems for Cincinnati and the surrounding areas, we’d like to provide an outline of what should be there to properly protect your office and its occupants.
Fire alarms as part of the commercial fire protection systems should sound or visually display the fire signal. Other components make it easier for occupants to evacuate, like exit signs. Are all of the proper signs present? Strobe lights and other signaling options on commercial fire protection systems should also light up in various ways that will help people identify the exits. This is especially true in the event of power loss; audio and visual components of the system will continue to function. A fire protection company like ours can evaluate your office’s system to ensure all exit signs are located where they should be and working properly.
Commercial fire protection systems are mandatory in most commercial properties. Local codes and regulations vary in different areas, such as how many occupants a building is allowed to have, whether a sprinkler system needs to be in the building and what building type classification you operate under. Commercial fire protection systems and alarms help with the overall cause of minimizing the damage done as a result of fire. The faster the fire is spotted, the sooner your notification system can alert the proper emergency personnel to come and put out the blaze.
It is also important that the commercial fire protection systems are properly installed and monitored. They can help save lives and minimize the amount of damage done. Since these are so essential, it is also important to make sure professionals have handled installation to ensure all works as it should. At Hard Fire, we have professional representatives on NFPA standard’s code committees and work closely with fire detection and suppression system manufacturers.
Have you had drills or inspections in your office? When you have commercial fire protection systems installed, it is also important to have them inspected on a regular basis. At Hard Fire, we use the best technology available to monitor your fire alarm and fire suppression systems.
