Reasons Why Passive Commercial Fire Protection Isn’t Enough

Published Date: April 19th, 2018 | Category: Fire Protection

Does your building have a commercial fire suppression system? If so, how old is it? Is it still up to code? If you have an old, outdated or bare bones fire suppression system in your office building, are you really doing everything you can to ensure safety for those who work there every day? Passive fire protection isn’t enough to keep everyone safe. Passive fire protection may work in theory, but when it comes down to it, your best line of defense is having a current, tested and monitored system that works. At Hard Fire, we specialize in commercial fire suppression for Columbus and know firsthand how essential having the right system can be.

We go directly to each business we service to custom design a comprehensive commercial fire suppression system for each unique business and building and then monitor it thereafter. We are constantly on top of the latest technology in fire suppression so we hate to see situations where companies don’t stay up-to-date on the latest and the greatest. Why not bring old buildings up to current technology

Detection alone won’t be enough for the safety of your building and the people within it. Fast, sufficient suppression is just as important. The best thing you can do for your commercial fire suppression system is to have it inspected by Hard Fire at least once a year. We can catch any problems that might impact the system’s ability to work if it is needed. We also recommend that you take a look at it on a monthly basis and that you take basic precautions like never painting over the sprinklers, never obstructing them and never hanging items from them.

And, the faster the fire is spotted, the sooner your notification system can alert the proper emergency personnel to come and put out the blaze.

Make sure all of your commercial fire suppression 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 you hire the professionals to ensure the job is done well. At Hard Fire, we have professional representatives on NFPA standard’s code committees and work closely with fire detection and suppression system manufacturers.
