"As a society we are dismissive of the risks of fire. Individually, we think fires only happen to other people. We sometimes assume we are too intelligent to fall victim to a fire. This false sense of security is lulling us into making poor decisions regarding the protection of the lives and property we are responsible for. Fire sprinkler systems are not being installed in locations where they could and will save lives.
You never know when or where a fire will start in your home or commercial premises. Imagine if you could have a fire-fighter stationed in every room - 24 hours a day, ready to stop a fire the minute it broke out. That's what fire sprinkler systems are - instant fire-fighters.
Everyone has heard about fire sprinkler systems, yet few understand the amazing benefits they provide. Even less people realise that you can fit a residential fire sprinkler system in your home for about the same cost as fitting new carpets."
