This leads to the damage of lives and property as well as lost customer trust. This is why it’s advisable to establish a fire preparedness or a fire prevention program as these help avoid injuries to visitors and employees. With the help of the most effective firefighting system, installed at your business premise, you can avoid costly, and at times, irreparable damages.

If you want to ensure maximum possible security for your business premise, you must know about the different types of fire protection systems. Here is a list of some of the major types of firefighting devices –

Wet sprinkler system – A fully automated sprinkler system is one of the most effective devices to control a fire. This system can extinguish the blaze quickly or prevent a fire from spreading. These systems operate only as and when required. Since these systems rely on water for extinguishing a blaze, these are known as wet sprinkler systems. Within these systems, the water gets delivered to the heads of the sprinklers through a network of pipes. These systems are usually integrated to fire alarm systems. This makes it easier to notify the occupants as well as call the fire brigade professionals quickly.

Dry sprinkler systems – These are a different type of sprinkler systems that rely on dry chemicals for extinguishing a fire. These devices are considered as perfect firefighting systems for areas where the water might freeze due to low temperature. NFA is a leading organization that offers a wide range of firefighting systems. They can also design dry sprinkler systems according to specific business requirements.

Pre-action systems – These types of firefighting devices are majorly used in computer applications and storage freezers. These systems are considered to be quite effective as these get automatically activated with the help of automatic detection system. The pipes within these devices are charged with air and this helps prevent the release of water, when not required. This ensures you can prevent a fire efficiently with the help of this type of device.

Deluge systems – This is another kind of firefighting device that is widely used for preventing a fire that is vast in size. This is mainly because these systems work quite fast to flood a particular area with a lot of water. These are usually used in areas where flammable liquids are not only handled, but also stored. These devices are also considered to be effective for hazardous areas like aircraft hangars. This is simply because water is the best possible fire suppression tool for areas like these. The intensity of water flow is generally determined by predicting the effects of the fire hazard.

Take a look at the features and benefits of the different types of firefighting devices so that you can choose the most efficient one for your business premise. Make sure the fire fighting system that you choose meets all your business requirements. (Original Source)
