Here is a list of our most Frequently Asked Question:
-How long will a fire alarm last?
When properly maintained, a good fire alarm will last you about 10 – 12 years. After this long you should have your fire alarms replaced, even if they seem to be working – you don’t want to compromise your building’s fire safety. In addition, technological advancements are making fire alarms more and more effective every day, and you don’t want to be stuck with an outdated model that won’t keep you as safe as possible.
-How much does a fire sprinkler system cost?
The ultimate cost of your fire sprinkler system depends on the brand and type of sprinkler system you install, but usually you can expect to pay anywhere from about $1.00 to $2.00 per square foot for new fire sprinkler system installations. Retrofitting an existing building with a new fire sprinkler system is more expensive, averaging about $2.50 per square foot.
The actual price of your fire sprinkler system will vary based on the overall size of your fire sprinkler system installation. Also, many insurance companies offer discounts on insurance premiums for buildings that have fire sprinkler systems installed, so be sure to factor that into the true, lifetime cost of the installation.
-How many fire extinguishers do I need in my building?
While the exact number of fire extinguishers required for each building varies based on the unique layout and hazard level, as a general rule of thumb you should have no more than 75ft of space between Class A fire extinguishers and no more than 50ft between Class B fire extinguishers.
