Nearly 5,000 fires take place per day during the summer, which ranks second in fire incidence rates compared to other seasons, according to the United States Fire Administration. With all the air conditioners running, high temperatures and stresses on electrical systems, it is one of the most dangerous seasons for fire. Between storing volatile chemicals, high temperatures and extra wear and tear on cooling equipment, industrial buildings are vulnerable to fire damage. Here at Hard Fire, we provide industrial fire protection for Columbus and the surrounding areas and we would like to discuss their importance in keeping your building safe in summer and in every season to come.
First of all, it is important that your industrial 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.
Your business’ fire protection system is an essential component to the safety of your business no matter the season. Simply installing a sprinkler system may not be enough to protect your employees and equipment. Have you had your fire protection system inspected lately? How old is the system? You should have fire alarms and fire suppression systems professionally serviced in the form of annual inspections. It is important to have your industrial fire protection systems checked once a year by a professional fire detection and alarm company such as Hard Fire. These preventative measures are essential in ensuring your system can handle whatever summer throws at it. We can customize a preventive maintenance program that provides you with a single source for all of your life safety systems.
These are just some of the things you can do to help protect your industrial business. For more information on industrial fire protection in Columbus and the surrounding areas, call Hard Fire at 1-800-848-1301 or 614-882-2990 or Contact Us.
