Consider Retrofitting Your Commercial Fire Sprinkler System

Consider retrofitting your system.

Commercial fire sprinkler systems can, without question, save lives. These systems help prevent extensive property damage and danger to human life. Without these systems, commercial buildings are far more susceptible to fire damage. One way to ensure that your system is operating at an efficient level is with retrofitting. Here are some of the benefits that retrofitting provides your fire sprinkler system.

What Is Retrofitting?

Retrofitting is not the same as installing a brand-new system. Retrofitting fire sprinklers entails improving what is already in place. A high-rise building, for example, may have outmoded construction processes and fire safety equipment. Nonetheless, a company like Chesapeake Sprinkler can repair or modify elements to improve safety.

Great For Significant Projects

Retrofitting fire sprinklers for large buildings such as high-rise apartments and schools can appear intimidating. You can, however, trust the retrofitting technique of Chesapeake Sprinkler. With our thorough strategies, your project can be done in a matter of days with minimal disruption to the building’s tenants. Of course, each project is unique, and the timing can vary depending on the size of the building.

Consider These Options

Your city may have laws requiring you to have certain fire protection elements in place by a future date. In general, however, the types of retrofitting you might see include:

  • Protection of common areas only
  • Protection of common areas and partial protection for specific rooms
  • Engineered Life Safety System (smoke detectors, fire alarms, partial fire sprinkler systems)

How It Retrofitting Your Fire System Benefits Everyone

The cost of a retrofitting project may deter many commercial building owners or managers. Nonetheless, this task will be well worth it for everyone. People benefit from the security it provides for their lives and possessions. Owners and managers are not liable if a catastrophic fire occurs, and their insurance costs will be drastically reduced.
