Fire safety is moving forward in the UK. More building owners are investing in automatic sprinklers. Many of those newly-installed systems benefit from a sprinkler tank. If you live in a high-rise building, you are likely to have round-the-clock fire safety measures in place. If you don’t, you should ask why.
Are you among those to have a sprinkler system connected to a sprinkler tank? If you are, you’re fortunate. That is because water is stored 24/7 – just to flight a fire. It is separate from your drinking water.
What is your sprinkler tank doing for you?
Consider a sprinkler tank as you would a firefighter. The only difference is that a sprinkler tank is on-site all day, all night and 365 days of the year. It is ready to deliver water to sprinkler heads the second a sensor detects a fire. It is likely to be delivering water to the point of a blaze before you even realise there is a fire.
How do you benefit? Sprinkler tanks:
- Help prevent fires from spreading
- They give you more time to evacuate a building
- Reduce damage
- Save lives
If your building does not have a sprinkler tank, water is not being stored solely to fight a fire.
Building owners, invest in fire safety
Boost your fire safety equipment with a sprinkler tank. Connected to an automatic sprinkler system it will aid your loss prevention strategy. It will make your building safer to live or work in. A fire tank will also give people more time to evacuate your building if the unthinkable happens.
