Exploring the many benefits of fire sprinklers

Fire sprinklers have many proven benefits, as outlined in a recent video made by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue. We’ve broken down the key points discussed in the video, to help you understand why fire sprinklers can be an extremely worthwhile investment.

Fight the spread of fire in its early stages

Fire sprinklers have been widely recognised as the most effective method of fighting the spread of fires in their early stages. This significantly reduces the risk to life and minimises property damage. Sprinklers also reduce the environmental impact of fire

Cost-effective long term

The cost of a sprinkler system can be recovered over a period of ten years, through reduced insurance premiums and, in larger organisations, because the disruption to business continuity in the event of a fire is significantly reduced.

Eradicate fire-related deaths

Installing fire sprinklers in your home or business premises could virtually eradicate loss of life in the event of a fire.

Sprinklers do more than just detect a fire

Smoke alarms are essential in every property, but they only detect a fire. Sprinklers not only detect the fire but control it as well, saving lives and limiting property damage.

You don’t need to worry about water damage

Only the sprinkler heads adjacent to a fire will go off, rather than all the heads at once (as people often mistakenly believe). This means you won’t have to worry about water damage throughout the rest of your property.

For added peace of mind, it’s worth noting that records show that sprinklers don’t go off by accident. Statistically, the chances of accidental discharge are 16,000,000 to 1!

Sprinklers protect the lives of firefighters

By successfully stopping the spread of fire early on, sprinklers reduce the level of intervention needed from emergency services. This means that sprinklers help to protect the lives of firefighters and reduce the risks for everyone involved in a fire.

For all the reasons listed above, sprinklers are fully supported by fire services everywhere.
