Sprinkler Tank Expert Comments on Paris Fire

Here is some important information about the benefits of a sprinkler tank. If you own a residential or business property in a built-up area, invest in automatic sprinklers and a sprinkler tank. The tragic news that ten people, including a baby, have died following a major fire in Paris highlights how quickly a fire can spread in large buildings. The fire took hold of an eight-storey property in France’s capital city, prompting a national outpouring of grief.

Nationwide Water Solutions, the UK’s sprinkler tank expert, says the fact that the blaze may have been started deliberately should be a cause for concern. Arson is common in commercial ad public buildings, along with vehicles. When directed at a residential address, as in this case, the results are all too often catastrophic. If you haven’t already invested in sprinklers, now is a good time to do so. At the same time, find out more about the effectiveness of a sprinkler tank.

 

Paris fire: nation wakes up to a tragedy

As well as the tragic loss of life, more than thirty people have been injured in the fire. It is reported that several of them include firefighters. The scene of the fire is close to the Parc des Princes football stadium. In a residential area, it necessitated the evacuation of fifty people by ladder. Other people climbed onto rooftops to escape flames and smoke.

Sprinkler tank expert Nationwide Water Solutions says: “ This fire started on the second floor of a block of flats. Any building that is over more than one level should have a sprinkler tank. This ensures the pressure is there to get water in the right quantity to the point of the blaze. In this case, smoke had already reached the top floor of the building by the time someone raised the alarm. Automatic sprinklers, when installed, get to work straight-away.”

Your 2019 sprinkler tank expert advice

If you own a building that benefits from automatic sprinklers and a sprinkler tank, the New Year is a great time to check:

  • When your sprinkler tank was last independently inspected. We recommend inspections are carried out annually to ensure any problems are detected quickly.
  • If your ageing sprinkler tank is suitable for relining or refurbishment.
  • Your independent inspection does not involve the draining of your sprinkler tank. As well as disabling the water supply to your sprinkler heads, it could impact your insurance. Make sure any inspection is carried out underwater with high-tech equipment that can guarantee the most accurate results.
  • If you are planning to invest in a sprinkler tank, talk to a sprinkler tank expert first. Ensure you are offered a comprehensive, free site survey. Make sure the tank you buy is suitable for its environment and your sprinkler system.

 

And finally…
