Residential Fire Sprinklers
The value of residential fire sprinklers can no longer be ignored. The facts confirm that the price per square foot is affordable, and this small investment can be repaid to the homeowner through discounts on insurance premiums. Residential sprinklers are a discount that continues long after the total cost is repaid.
According to the National Fire Sprinkler Association:
- Sprinklers are designed to give occupants time to escape a deadly fire
- Over 95% of all fires in residential occupancies are suppressed by one sprinkler head
- Sprinklers are the most effective life safety device available
- Combining smoke alarms with a sprinkler system and increases chances of survival by over 85%
