Preventing Industrial Fires

A fire has the power to destroy whatever is in its path unless the component that is fuelling its fury is taken away. Industrial buildings come in a range of shape and sizes which means that industrial fires can not only be devastating, they can be extremely dangerous if they are not controlled as soon as possible. Luckily there are a few particular measures that can be put into place in order to prevent industrial fires… Fire Shutters Instead of a regular roller shutter large industrial buildings can benefit from a fire shutter. This is an adapted version of a roller shutter that is built in order to withstand the heat and power of a fire for up to 30 minutes in order to give people extra time to escape. Many fire shutters also compartmentalise a warehouse or factory in order to prevent a fire from spreading. Fire Doors Smaller fires have the potential to spread very quickly and the fist potential barrier that they face is a doorway so having a high quality fire door installed is an important part of fire prevention. In fact, this is why is it essential that fire doors are kept shut at all times so that they can do their job if a fire is to occur. Servicing Sometimes the machinery inside an industrial building can be the cause of a fire so it is important that it is serviced on a regular basis in order to ensure that there are no faults left to develop into life threating issues. After all, servicing doesn’t take up much time and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be done routinely. Here at ABC Industrial we want to make sure that every single one of our clients can ensure that their industrial property is protected in the event of a fire. After all, it is difficult to completely prevent a fire from occurring so having the necessary measures in place in order to be sure that the building can evacuate in time is something you cannot put a price on.
