Planning Your Building's Fire Safety Strategy
In order to begin the process of determining the best combination, method, and extent of fire suppression systems for your building, you should first start by contacting a qualified fire protection engineer, or qualified fire protection-versed engineer or architect. A fire protection engineer will utilize both science and technology to analyze your building in order to design a system customized for you that will suppress any and all fires, alert people to danger, and provide a plan for escape, all with materials and methods appropriate for the contents of the spaces you are protecting. For referrals, please contact our office at 1 (888) 232-7334 or visit us on the web at www.ceasefire.com and our representative will be happy to help you with names of engineers and or architects in your local area that can help design an appropriate value- engineered fire protection system for your needs.
Once you have worked with a fire protection engineer to design your fire suppression system, it is imperative to familiarize and train your office workers with your fire safety strategy. Regularly schedule fire drills to practice safe fire escape routes, and make sure all personnel know the locations of fire stairway exits, fire alarms (and their proper usage in event of an emergency), and any other fire-related policies your company has put into place. Ensuring that your employees are well versed in what to do when a fire strikes will make all the difference in the safe outcome of the fire. Additionally, post floor plans and/or workplace maps clearly showing the exit strategies decided upon and immediately train new employees as soon as they begin working at your company. Never let a fire catch you unprepared.
If your fire protection engineer has determined that a chemical, waterless fire suppression system is necessary in addition to the typical sprinkler system means of fire suppression, Cease Fire's modular dual-agent fire extinguishing system is an excellent choice. Being cost-effective, simple to install (requiring no piping, wiring, and very little space per unit), the CFF-800 is on the leading edge of non-toxic, environmentally-friendly waterless fire suppression. It is the industry's only truly modular unit, and can be networked with a number of units according to the size of the space to be protected. This is truly the easiest part of the fire safety strategy—just tell us a few simple measurements of the space you want to protect, some information about the nature of the contents of the space (sensitive equipment, telecommunications technology, museum artifacts, computer servers, and many more valuable yet vulnerable items) and we'll figure out the rest!
When it comes time to install the CFF-800 units, simply mount the mounting flange in the location previously determined, and screw the cylinder into place. The CFF-800 takes it from there, being on alert twenty four hours a day, heat-activated, automatic, and ready to knock down any fire in a matter of seconds—and make sure it stays down.
Chemical fire suppression is a necessity for every business of today. No company can afford the time, money, or resources for recovering from a catastrophic trio of smoke, fire, and water damage—and now, it isn't necessary. Cease Fire's patented fire suppression system extinguishes the fire without damaging the contents of the room to be protected safely and with no costly side effects.
