Fire crews in England attend an average of 336 warehouse fires every year - nearly one a day
Large, single-storey buildings are not designed to withstand fire, and without sprinklers the contents often have sufficient combustible loading for the fire to spread and can overwhelm any firefighting effort. It’s often the case that businesses are not valuing what they own in terms of property and think they are going to recover a lot quicker than they do. They are failing to see the real impact of fire and leaving themselves exposed.
The sector includes an extensive range of building types from heavy manufacturing to food distributors, light assembly to bulk warehouses, cold storage to data hosting
centres. Regardless of the property type, automatic fire sprinkler systems are the most effective means to protect a business and property from fire.
