We recommend that automatic sprinkler systems are fitted where appropriate, in both business premises and in our homes.
Information gathered from every Fire Service in the UK shows that sprinkler systems:
- contain or put out the fire in 99% of cases
- reduce damage to residential properties by 75%
- reduce damage to non-residential properties by around 50%
- are very reliable – the probability that a system will operate as it should is 94% across all buildings
