It’s no secret that fire can cause severe damage no matter what contingencies you have in place to prevent them. And however unlikely, it’s best to be prepared. We always recommend installing fire shutters, fire resistant curtains or both to help protect both your employees and property.
What Types of Businesses can Benefit from Fire Protection Equipment?
The risk of fire can pose a threat to any business, but a few business sectors are more at risk than others:
Schools – As a place filled with lots of children and adults daily, a school poses a higher threat to life if a fire breaks out. There are many potential fire hazards in schools, from chemistry experiments in labs to pan fires in school kitchens. With an increased risk of fire and many people that could be in potential danger in a fire, fire protection equipment is vital in schools.
Restaurants – Of course, one of a restaurant’s main components is the kitchen. The kitchen is home to many fire hazards, from the oven to the hob. To protect staff and customers from a fire, fire protection equipment must be used to keep the blaze contained.
Hospitals – There are numerous potential fire risks at a hospital including, pressurised air canisters, chemicals and heavy machinery. With many vulnerable people in the building, hospitals must have fire protection equipment as an uncontrolled blaze could result in many lives at risk.
Warehouses – With warehouses, a fire’s risk is not so damaging to life as it is to stocked goods. If insufficient fire protection equipment is used, it could result in the loss of thousands of pounds.
