If you are a commercial or industrial sector, by law, you have a duty to manage the health and safety risks for all your occupants. To achieve that, you must consider everything that could potentially harm individuals. You must also establish that you are taking reasonable steps to avoid potential harm.

Fire can be classed as a major risk in any building, and you are required by law to reduce the risk to people and property in the event of a fire.

There are several penalties for non-compliance, and a fire risk assessment is required to identify possible hazards and risks. This will suggest actions to protect people, especially the ones that are most vulnerable and remove the risk of fire from the premises.

Fire alarm system: a crucial requirement for buildings

Any place that is public, whether that be a mall, restaurant, or downtown, must comply with the fire code. The National Fire Protection Act and National Electric Code are regulating bodies that you have to interact with if you are a facility.

Along with that code, which updates every few years, and the local fire authority, the fire marshals and builders, and the fire inspectors will tell you what is required to keep the building and structure in the public safe. And you have to comply with that to keep your doors open..

The second option you have to meet with technology compliance. This means having an electronic fire system that’s typically connected to a sprinkler suppression system, which is connected to a hood system.

Importance of smoke detectors

Restaurants have large kitchens where the temperature is generally hot since that is where all the cooking is done. They require active smoke detectors. These establishments must have sprinklers ready to deal with the fire and let out the hot air. But sprinkler systems are obviously not appropriate for facilities like giant server rooms, as there are electrical hardware units there, which may get damaged if they get wet.

In this scenario, fire compliance protection is required. Things like a gas suppression system which minimizes oxygen to mitigate fire to protect servers from getting fried.

Fire prevention solutions

Watchlight has several methods of implementing different types of fire solutions. We target builders when we set up and install the fire alarm control panel. It should be regulated and in alignment with building codes.

For example, in a stadium or a similar building with huge structural jobs, the builder has to keep in mind that exits are fire compliant, in which during emergencies, thousands of people have access to entryways or fire exits that can get them to safety immediately. These portals must accommodate fire trucks so that firefighters can regulate the fire.

Inspections to these places are crucial, and authorities are keen on checking if such buildings follow or observe the fire compliance code. We provide the equipment, design the system, build, implement, and maintain, prepare for inspections, and other government compliance your institution is required to undergo.

The Watchlight team builds a framework that is accorded with government requirements, and it is monitored professionally.
