Fire Extinguishers Elk Grove
If every building had fire extinguishers and people properly trained to use them, the number of fire emergencies would dive dramatically. They’re a crucial first line of defense, but there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to outfitting them. Fire risks, and the extinguishers that prevent them, fall into five different categories.
- Class A extinguishers meet the risks of carbon-based fires.
- Class B products extinguish fires caused by flammable liquids.
- Class C extinguishers are for businesses that handle gasses like propane and butane.
- Class D fires are triggered by burning metal.
- Class F extinguishers are for rooms that handle cooking oils.
We’ll help you make the right choice of water, foam, dry powder, C02, and wet chemical extinguishers. Once we’ve outfitted your building, we’ll even help you train your staff or residents to use your extinguishers correctly.
Elk Grove Fire Sprinklers
Sprinklers effectively manage fires in 96% of cases, but this kind of system is more exacting than you might think. We offer four different sprinkler types:
- Pressurized wet pipe
- Dry pipe
In Elk Grove, the law requires you to install automatic fire sprinkler systems if your building is 5,000 square feet or more, even if it’s a residential space. Foothill Fire Protection will help you to meet the sprinkler requirements of your area. We install and maintain fire sprinkler systems in commercial and residential properties alike. We specialize in designing installations for all types of spaces.
If you’re ready to become NFPA-complaint, call us at (916) 663-3582.
Fire Monitoring Systems
The sooner you’re aware of a fire, the more effectively you can extinguish it, so fire monitoring is a core part of any fire protection strategy. The advent of smart building technology has taken monitoring to an entirely new level. Today’s smoke and flame detectors will alert you by phone so that you can meet the dangers from anywhere in the world. We install a range of alarms:
- Photoelectric smoke alarms are quick to identify flame-free smoldering fires.
- Ionization detectors are best for carbon- and liquid-based flaming fires.
- Combination smoke alarms blend the benefits of photoelectric and ionization detectors.
Smoke detectors also vary by their power source. Hard wired options use your direct electrical circuit, while plug-in products access power via a socket. Battery-powered options are a popular alternative that requires little more than an annual service.
Fire Alarms and Exit Signs
The sooner residents are warned of a fire, the lower the risk to their safety. Safe evacuations must perform on two fronts by notifying evacuees and ensuring safe exit. Signage is an important part of this process, particularly in multi-story establishments. We create custom designs for every warning strategy we create.
