Buildings with storage areas need protecting with modern fire safety equipment, a sprinkler tank specialist has warned. Nationwide Water Solutions said spaces or buildings used for storage pose a risk. That is because of the the amount of cardboard and other combustible materials they contain. Losses in storage room fires can also be high, if a fire is not detected in time.
A spokesman said: “If you own a building that stores goods, you need to consider the benefits of installing a sprinkler system and a sprinkler tank. Not only will this type of equipment keep your insurers happy, it will boost loss prevention strategies and prevent the rapid spread of fire.”

Nationwide Water Solutions offers businesses and property owners free advice on water storage solutions.

It holds water for the sole purpose of fighting a fire.
Fires in storage areas and shops are not uncommon. Today (November 30) a blaze was discovered in a store at a shopping centre in Lowestoft. The fire was detected at 8.15am. It necessitated breathing apparatuses and a hose reel.
