Businesses need to make sure that the fire suppression system is still functioning as effectively as it can once the fire sprinkler assembly process has been completed. The fire protection system installation might cost around $6,000 if the system is being put into place in a room measuring 4,500 square feet.
When considering these costs, businesses should also consider the average expenses connected with fire damage. One fire in a warehouse could cost $128,000 once the damaged property has been restored. Fires in other businesses might not cause quite as much expensive damage, but it’s still common for businesses to pay at least $8,000 on repairs once they’ve had even a small fire. Maintaining the fire suppression and safety systems won’t be particularly costly once these systems have been established, especially if the fire sprinkler heads are cleaned and the system is safely tested regularly.
Even when the fire sprinkler heads are no longer usable, the total fire sprinkler head replacement cost could be under $30. For that price, business owners might be able to afford several new fire sprinkler heads, which can then be installed fairly quickly by fire safety professionals. Make the right decision in securing your business against fire.
