Do you need a Pompano Beach sprinkler and smoke detector? Well perfect, because we have both! And we can install, maintain, and inspect them too. You’ve pretty much hit the Fire and Life Safety jackpot, let us tell you why.
Mmm sandwiches. There’s the submarine sandwich, the reuben, the grilled cheese… this is really making us hungry. You know what else sandwiches make us think of? Sprinkler and smoke detection systems. Stay with us… because after you read this blog, we think you’ll agree that a Pompano Beach sprinkler and smoke detector belong together, just like the greatest of all sandwich mashups: the PB&J.
Do I Really Need a Sprinkler and Smoke Detector?
If you’re wondering if you need a Pompano Beach sprinkler and smoke detector for your commercial business, and you found DynaFire, then
the answer is yes. In a recent report on fires in industrial and manufacturing facilities, the NFPA found that although these structure fires accounted for just 20% of total fires, they caused 49% of deaths and 67% of the direct property damage.
It’s proven that smoke detectors drastically cut the chances of death or injury from a fire, and sprinklers can effectively control a fire. A combination of these two systems can make your property safer for any occupants, and reduce the overall damage to your property.
How Smoke Detectors Help You
Ionization smoke detectors
Typically more responsive to open flame, these detectors hold a small piece of radioactive material between two electrically charged plates. The reaction between the plates and radioactive material creates a current which is disrupted when smoke enters the detector.
Photoelectric smoke detectors
These devices use a light source and sensor to detect smoke. Smoke particles enter the detection chamber and reflect the light beam in the detector towards the sensors. This causes the alarm to activate. These types of detectors are especially effective at sensing “smoldering fires” that may not erupt into open flame.
Combination alarm systems that utilize both types of fire detectors are available, and preferable for maximum Fire and Life Safety.
If you thought that we forgot about this critical part of Pompano Beach sprinkler and smoke detector systems, think again. A sprinkler system activates in the presence of heat from an open flame, and uses water to extinguish the fire. Many people think that a sprinkler system activating means a torrential downpour of water. In reality, most fires are extinguished by just a few sprinkler heads.
How Pompano Beach sprinkler and smoke detector systems work together
Any combination of fire detection and suppression systems can have a positive impact on a structure fire. Not every system is a perfect fit for each property type, and if you’re wondering what your needs are, give the professionals a call.
DynaFire can design, install, and maintain a system that is ideal for your property and business. We offer testing and inspection, and we make a pretty decent sandwich too, just saying. Give us a call, or fill out our online contact form today.
