Is Your Fire Suppression System Outdated?

Posted on: September 13, 2013

In order to work properly, clean agent fire suppression systems must be properly installed and regularly inspected. Regular fire suppression system inspections will ensure that your building, along with the people and any valuable equipment inside it, are protected from fires. Clean agent Commercial fire suppression systems are vital for keeping kitchens, data centers, museums and other facilities safe without using water.

If you can’t remember the last time you had your fire suppression system tested, it’s probably been too long. Call Guardian Fire Protection today for fire suppression system inspection today – 888-228-0917 or click here.

Benefits of Fire Suppression System Inspection

Without regular maintenance, you never know how well your fire suppression system will react in the event of a fire. In fact, having a poorly maintained fire suppression system can be worse than not having one at all, as it may trick you into falsely believing you are protected.

Just like a car kept in the garage for 10 years, your fire suppression system (hopefully) gets used very rarely-if ever. As a result of sitting idle for so long, different components of your may wear out and not be able to activate when you need them. Regular fire suppression system inspections will prevent this type of damage from occurring and help ensure your system will be reliable.

Fire Suppression System Inspection Requirements

  • Manufacturers’ recommendations – every fire suppression system we install comes with a recommended maintenance schedule, so if Guardian Fire Protection installed your system, we urge you to keep up with that schedule. It is there to keep you, your employees and your building safe.

If you were not present when the fire suppression system was installed, or if you are not aware of your system’s maintenance schedule, give us a call. We will help you get back on track and keep your building safe from fires.

  • Whenever the building changes hands – if you have recently moved into a new facility, or if you have become the facility manager of a business, it helps to have fire suppression system inspection as soon as possible.
  • Today – if you don’t remember the last time you had your fire suppression system inspected, call Guardian Fire Protection today. An outdated fire suppression system poses a major safety hazard to everyone and everything in your building.
