We usually make high amount of investments for assets in our homes and businesses. These assets are the most important integral elements for profitability and stability of any business. One of the most dangerous and unpredictable threat to these assets would be fire. Fires occur without any prior notice and can ruin the entire parts of a building. That is why preventive measures in terms of adequate fire safety are essential to provide a shield against such unfortunate incidents and overall safety of the place in terms of loss of assets and serious injuries that can happen to inhabitants in the building. It is important to install a fire fighting system in buildings with proper fire alarms to indicate commencement of fire in any corner of a building.
Insurance regulatory authorities seek details of installations of fire safety system and periodical visual inspection reports for these systems as well. In case if such difficult situation arises and we are opting for an insurance claim, the building needs to have a compliant system as per regulations of insurance companies and these systems need to be inspected through authorized experts of Fire Extinguisher Companies time to time to ensure it is free from any defects that can be visually traced.
In most of the countries a fire fighting system installation in a building is necessary for subsequent registrations and licenses from government authorities before starting the actual utilization of buildings for commercial activities. That is why we can see firefighting systems installed in various commercial buildings, malls, shopping complexes and even residential apartment buildings. This system has arrangement of sprinklers covering adequate area, connected to a source of water through piping and a powerful pump to deliver water to these sprinklers. All these arrangements are interconnected to fire sensors, so that whenever something catches fire the system automatically starts pumping water which is spread across in various areas through sprinklers so that fire doesn’t spread around and all the inhabitants and the assets inside the building would be safe from hazards of fire.
This system can be designed for kitchens at home and for kitchens in commercial premises such as hotels and restaurants as well, using portable fire extinguishers as the device to nullify fire especially at the source of flame, chimneys and exhaust ducting in the kitchens.
It is always advisable to have portable Mini Fire Extinguishers of adequate size kept in a corner of the buildings using a wall mounting arrangement, proper case or cabinet. At the same time all the people working in the building should be properly trained regarding directions of use of powder fire extinguisher cylinders, so that in case of emergency someone can make a move and directing the flow of ingredient of a portable fire extinguisher through nozzles on the source of fire and providing reciprocal motion, the fire can be nullified easily avoiding it to spread and cause major losses. These portable fire extinguishers can be one time investments and provide peace of mind in terms of safety as they would be available within the reach of hands.
