According to the National Fire Protection Association, the installation of a fire sprinkler system can decrease deaths that occur within an apartment complex fire by 80%. Chesapeake Sprinkler Company provides high-quality, professional installations of fire systems to customers throughout the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore metropolitan. Our professional years of prototyping, designing, and installing fire systems include working with commercial apartment complexes. Since fires that occur within an apartment building can spread rapidly between units, it’s critical to ensure that residents are thoroughly protected and notified through the fire alarm at the very first sign of a fire. By installing a fire alarm and fire sprinkler system, you can help curb the rapid spread of fire and potentially save the lives of residents.
Fire Alarm Systems Notify Building Occupants
A fire alarm system is the first notification to building occupants that an evacuation is necessary. A majority of commercial apartment buildings hardwire the alarm system, which alerts all residents to evacuate. This provides a higher level of protection to building occupants by notifying them of an emergency rather than on a unit-by-unit notification system. The result? Occupants of a commercial apartment complex are notified to evacuate at the same time, which can help spare lives in the event of a rapidly spreading fire.
Fire Sprinkler Systems Slow the Spread
It’s not enough to solely install a fire alarm system within a commercial apartment complex. Whether you’re an older apartment building or new construction, it’s essential to install a fire sprinkler system to slow the spread of a fire outbreak. Chesapeake Sprinkler Company can retrofit fire sprinkler systems throughout older buildings and also install new systems. Fire sprinkler systems release water throughout the building when a fire has been detected, which can help reduce damage to your commercial apartment complex property and even potentially slow the spread of fire by providing a source of water to help extinguish the fire.
The Statistics Speak for Themselves
According to the NFPA, the statistics speak for themselves regarding the importance of fire prevention and protection, especially in commercial apartment complexes. In 2019 alone, local fire departments responded to over a million calls for help extinguishing a fire outbreak. By installing a fire alarm system and fire sprinkler system, you can help protect all building occupants against devastating fire loss. Reach out to Chesapeake Protection Services today!
