Fire protection systems found in large and small churches, temples, cathedrals, synagogues and other places of worship are designed to accommodate the unique buildings they are housed in. Our installation designers conceal sprinkler heads and devices so they don’t visually disrupt the building’s natural beauty. But since these facilities bring large groups of people together for weddings, services, community events and other special occasions, it’s important that they are strategically placed to audibly and visually provide immediate emergency notification.
Fires in religious institutions are most commonly caused by kitchen cooking equipment or grease fires. To minimize these potential risks, it is imperative that the kitchen be protected by a specialized fire suppression system which contains a liquid agent designed to diminish flames and cool hot surfaces. The tanks, nozzles and other components must be inspected by a fire protection expert, like Valley Fire Protection, semi-annually to ensure they will work when needed.
