Keeping your commercial fire protection up to date is critical for protecting your property, your staff, and your customers. Unfortunately, many businesses don’t realize that their commercial fire protection plan was out of date until disaster strikes or they fail a fire inspection. Here are 3 signs that your commercial fire protection system needs a major update.
Age Isn’t Just a Number
Every year, fire protection systems get more modern and more advanced. If your commercial fire protection system is old, you are missing out on all that modern technology has to offer. Newer systems are made to be more reliable and more efficient, so if a fire does occur it will be under control in dramatically less time. Old and outdated fire protection systems can actually put your property in danger.
You’re Growing (or Shrinking)
Any major changes to your commercial facility, even if they’ve occurred over the ten years it’s been since you had your commercial fire protection system assessed, are a cause for adjusting the protections you have in place. Changes often affect what part of the fire code you need to follow and how many fire protection devices you need to have. Even moving where you store flammable items could affect your fire protection system. Make sure that you have enough fire extinguishers, sprinkler piping, and fire alarms for your current operational capacity.
Service is a Regular Occasion
Other than our regular fire protection system maintenance, if you are having to call Biles Fire Protection on a regular basis for service, it’s a sign that your commercial fire protection is in need of an upgrade. Some system problems cost more to fix than replacing the entire system with something more modern, so give us a call today to see what your options are.
