Hotel Sprinkler System Service and Maintenance
You must get your sprinkler system regularly serviced to make sure that it is fit for use should a fire break out in your hotel.
If they’re left alone after they’re installed, sprinkler systems may become ineffective, putting your business and customers at risk.
Government guidelines state that regular checks on fire safety equipment must be carried out to make sure that all equipment works properly, should it be called upon in an emergency.
At The Fire Suppression Company, we offer quality checks on your hotel sprinkler system to make sure that your premises are as well-equipped as possible to deal with any fires.
These checks are typically carried out every 12 months but can be done more frequently if you need reassurance that your hotel is equipped to deal with all fires.
Different types of Sprinkler Systems
There are three main types of fire sprinkler systems: wet, dry, and pre-action. Each system has its own advantages and disadvantages that need to be considered when choosing a system for a particular building.
Wet Fire Sprinkler Systems
Wet fire sprinklers are the most common type, and work by using water to extinguish fires.
These sprinklers are usually connected to a water supply, such as a city water system, and activate when the heat from a fire sets off the sprinkler head.
Dry Fire Sprinkler Systems
Dry fire sprinklers are less common and use compressed air to extinguish fires.
These sprinklers do not require a water supply, but instead, rely on a pressurised tank of air that is released when the fire sets off the sprinkler head.
Pre-action Fire Sprinkler Systems
Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are those that use a valve to close off the water supply until the fire is detected. This helps to prevent accidental water discharge, as well as leakage from the system.
When the fire is detected, the valve is opened and water is released from the sprinkler heads. The water pressure in the system must be high enough to ensure that the water can reach the fire.
Pre-action systems are typically more expensive than other types of fire sprinkler systems, but they offer a higher level of protection.
Why should hotels install a sprinkler system?
Hotels should have fire sprinkler systems because they can help to save lives and property in the event of a fire.
Fires in hotels can be very dangerous and often lead to fatalities. Fire sprinklers are one of the best ways to prevent fires from spreading and can help firefighters extinguish a fire more quickly.
There are a few key reasons why hotels should install fire sprinkler systems:
Fire Sprinklers are now required by law in buildings over 11m.
Fire sprinkler systems can help to reduce the amount of damage that a fire can cause.
Sprinkler systems can contain a fire before it has a chance to spread, which can minimise the amount of damage to the hotel and its contents.
In some cases, a sprinkler system may even be able to prevent a fire from starting in the first place by detecting and extinguishing small fires before they have a chance to grow.
Reduce the risk of injuries and fatalities
Fire Sprinkler Systems in a hotel can help to reduce the risk of injuries or fatalities in the event of a fire.
Fire sprinklers can give people time to evacuate the building and can help to keep them safe from smoke and heat.
In some cases, sprinkler systems may even be able to extinguish a fire before it has a chance to cause any serious damage or injuries.
Some insurance companies may offer discounts to hotels that have sprinkler systems installed, as they are considered to be a lower risk.
Give your guests peace of mind
Having a fire sprinkler system can help to give guests peace of mind and make them feel more comfortable staying at the hotel.
Guests who know that there is a fire sprinkler system in place will feel safer and may be more likely to choose to stay at the hotel again in the future.
