Why Do I Need Fire Sprinklers Installed?

fire protection in the last 100 years. Fire sprinklers
are the most effective method of protecting lives

As a society we are dismissive of the risks
of fire. Individually, we think fires only happen
to other people. We sometimes assume we are too
intelligent to fall victim to a fire. This false
sense of security is lulling us into making poor
decisions regarding the protection of the lives
and property we are responsible for. Fire sprinkler
systems are not being installed in locations where
they could and will save lives.
You never know when or where a fire will start
in your home or commercial premises. Imagine if
you could have a fire-fighter stationed in every
room - 24 hours a day, ready to stop a fire the
minute it broke out. That's what fire sprinkler
systems are - instant fire-fighters.
Everyone has heard about fire sprinkler systems,
yet few understand the amazing benefits they provide.
Even less people realise that you can fit a residential
fire sprinkler system in your home for about the
same cost as fitting new carpets.
Fire Sprinklers made mandatory
in many regions of the World
Fire sprinklers have been
so successful at reducing fire causalities and
property damage around the world, that many regions
have passed local laws making it mandatory to
fit them in new homes and offices. Some regions
are even making it mandatory to retro fit fire
sprinkler systems into selected existing buildings.
In June 2005, the National Fire Protection Association
in the US voted to make it mandatory to have sprinklers
installed in all new one and two family dwellings.
Even more promising is the fact that we are taking
a similar approach in the UK.
The Scottish Executive recently announced new
measures to protect the most vulnerable from fire.
From 1st May 2005, new and converted care homes,
high rise flats and sheltered housing must fit
automatic fire sprinkler systems.
It is estimated that there are now in excess
of 100 UK schools fitted with automatic sprinklers.
Housing Associations are also recognizing the
benefits and increasing number are fitting sprinklers
into HMOs (Housing of Multiple Occupancy). More
and more people are beginning to install sprinklers
based on the factual benefits they bring.
