The fire safety systems in place at a store should protect customers, employees, and property. Chesapeake Sprinkler Company has decades of experience installing fire safety systems at commercial locations. A store has many factors that should be considered before investing in your fire safety systems.
Avoiding Chemicals in Your Fire Safety Solutions
There are many types of fire suppression systems outside of the typical wet sprinkler and dry sprinkler systems. Talk to our fire sprinkler contractors about a safe solution for your store. Consider investing in a wet sprinkler system if your store deals with produce. Special hazard fire suppression systems usually extinguish fires by using chemicals. Our technicians will help you find the best fire safety systems for your store that maintain the integrity of your products in the case of a fire alarm.
What We Look For in Fire Safety Inspections
Scheduled maintenance for your fire safety systems should include regular inspections. Here are some things every store should include in their fire safety checks:
- Unobscured and clearly marked exits
- Electrical systems and wiring work properly
- Fire pump inspection
- Fire extinguishers are put in appropriate positions
- Manual fire alarms are accessible and working
- Smoke detectors are up to date and functional
- Fire suppression and sprinkler systems
Ensure Your Fire Safety Systems are Accessible to the Public Too
Employees will likely always be present when customers are present. That does not mean they see every inch of the store at all times. Fires break out all the time from electrical shortages or flammable materials. Alert systems should be accessible to customers as well as employees. Manual pull fire alarms are an excellent option for areas with customers. Fire extinguishers are always placed near areas that could possibly erupt into flames. Kitchens, heavy machinery, and other occupational fire hazards usually occur in areas of a facility that customers are not allowed in. Fire extinguishers can pose a safety risk if used by untrained employees. They should be kept away from the public for this reason. To ensure your customers will be safe during a fire, have accessible alert systems like pull alarms.
