When to Replace Your Fire Protection System
The System is Old
Every year, your fire protection system gets a little older and a little more outdated. This means it doesn’t have all the latest features and advanced technology that modern systems have. The main reason you should upgrade your system is because corrosion and pinpoint leaks can appear over time causing damage with leaking and clogged pipes. Older systems can actually cause more damage because the fire can spread faster and leave you with more repair bills.
Your Company Size is Changing
The fire protection equipment that should be installed in your building is dependant on the amount of people that occupy the building. So if your company is either growing or downsizing, you’ll want to make sure you have the right amount of fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers and fire alarms needed for the people in the building. The number of people in your building will also affect the fire code that you’ll need to abide by.
It Requires a Lot of Maintenance
When there are issues with a fire protection device, it’s best to call in a professional to take a look and repair any damages. However, if you’re starting to call in a professional on a regular basis, then it might be time to replace the system and cut out the maintenance costs. Brause it could be costing you more money to continuously update your system rather than investing in a new one. Plus it’s not safe to rely on a system that has a lot of issues.
