While risks exist, up-to-code and the properly installed fire suppression system can prevent great damage or loss of life from a fire.
A fire is among the most damaging things which can happen to your retail store. One proven approach to improve your store’s performance is to effectively manage losses by implementing preventative solutions such as fire equipment installation and ensuring building fire safety compliance.
Nowadays, forward-thinking retailers choose to invest in fire equipment services to create a good effect on their business allowing them to display their merchandise with confidence. Fire safety compliance enables retailers to secure assets, improve customer loyalty and increase profitability.
Retail businesses require fire equipment services including fire sprinkler, fire pumps, fire alarm, and water storage holding tanks, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, hood suppression as well as backflow prevention.
Ideal Fire Equipment Services for Retail Stores:
- Fire sprinklers: The first line of defense against a retail store fire. The sprinkler heads disperse water on the flames and keep them from spreading until the fire department arrives and takes full control of the situation.
- Fire alarms: Retail stores are significantly bigger than a residence, therefore fire alarms are essential for alerting customers of the emergency. Keep the system properly maintained so that you know you are able to rely on getting employees and customers to safety if in case a fire ignites.
- Fire alarm monitoring: In case a fire ignites in your retail store during the middle of the night, Fire alarm monitoring guarantees the fire department is aware of the crisis seconds after the alarm goes off. It is the best way to make sure help is on the way, even when no one is around to report the fire.
- Fire extinguishers: Distribute fire extinguishers across your retail store, making sure to place one or two near flammable products. ABE fire extinguishers are probably the most versatile since they set out fires triggered by flammable liquids, electronic equipment, and burning paper or plastic.
- Employee Fire Safety Training: All employees must attend fire safety training. The training course informs them of all fire safety regulations and compliance requirements. It presents them with the store’s fire safety policy and plans. They’ll learn about fire safety devices and escape plans that they will need in the event of a fire.
