There are some builders and commercial property owners who may hesitate to install fire sprinklers because of concerns over cost. But fire sprinklers can actually save you money.
- Fire Damage - This is the most obvious reason, but with good cause: fire can cost you millions of dollars in damages, and loss of business and stock. The statistics show that commercial fire sprinklers can cut your damage costs by about 90%, on average. One fire; and your sprinklers could pay for themselves.
- Property Damage - Many people believe commercial fire sprinklers cause water damage to property. Actually, fire-related property damage is often 10 times worse without them.
- Insurance - If you install commercial fire sprinklers in your buildings, your insurance company may offer a discount; often from 10% to 65%, depending on the type of building.
- Water - Commercial fire sprinklers use so much less water than firefighters need to extinguish a fire. This can reduce the need to expand a water supply that's already there, saving you serious money.
