Extra Care Facility Fire Sprinkler in Kent
Modern care homes have all the ‘mod cons’ in some cases including Fire Sprinklers. Ultrasafe were asked to install sprinklers as part of the fire strategy, which in turn reduced the staffing levels required.
It is important to protect vulnerable people such as those in care homes. Often residents have mobility issues meaning that they can not get out of bed without help and may require specialist equipment such as a hoist. Many will also suffer with confusion and anxiety, making evacuating a building in a fire more difficult.
Ultrasafe Sprinkler Solution:
With Fire Sprinklers in this new care facility the residents have 24/7 protection. Each sprinkler acting as a heat sensitive element poised and ready to activate if required. Only the sprinklers heated up by the fire will activate containing, controlling and extinguishing the fire, and so keeping exits clear for all occupants to safely leave the building in an emergency.
