When was the last time you thought about your company’s sprinkler system? It’s one of those things that we take for granted – until it’s necessary.
A sprinkler system is one of the most effective ways to contain a fire. Without immediate intervention, flames can spread rapidly throughout a commercial building, feeding on flammable carpets and furniture, creating clouds of toxic smoke. But a sprinkler system senses the heat of the air above the flames and activates quickly, spraying the fire with pressurized water. Many times a sprinkler system manages to contain a blaze before the fire truck even arrives. But even these reliable systems need occasional testing, maintenance, and repair.
You may also want to think about integrating your sprinklers with a state-of-the-art alarm system or upgrading your fire extinguishers and your emergency plan.

Fire Sprinkler Service
In a corporate setting, we remember to service the equipment that we use frequently. The photocopier, for instance, gets more than its fair share of TLC. Computers often require upgrading, maintenance, or repair; phone systems get updated and even office furniture gets changed occasionally. But because we don’t use the fire safety equipment on a regular basis, it’s easy to forget that it, too, may need to be tested and maintained.
Choosing a Company
There are plenty of companies that list sprinkler servicing among their activities, but with a system so crucial – you might even say life or death – it’s best to opt for a company that specializes in fire safety. These companies employ personnel who understand various types of systems and who provincial and federal fire code regulations.
