Brooklyn NY Fire Sprinkler Inspections, Repairs, and Installation
Let’s face it, people have a lot on their plate these days. We take a lot of things for granted, but it’s essential to take care of the people and items close to you. To put it bluntly, you need to protect your home! Accidents can happen, including fires. Unfortunately, there’s not much time to react when a fire begins. It doubles in area every three seconds. While different materials have different combustion times, the determining factor is the fire’s temperature which correlates to how long it has been burning. Fire damage to lungs and other organs can result in a fatal injury in 3-5 minutes. Your protection comes from a fire sprinkler system in your Brooklyn home. That’s where the professionals at Allstate Sprinkler Corp. come in. We install proficient and reliable residential fire sprinkler systems in Brooklyn.
Fire Department Response Times
Even if you have a fire alarm system in Brooklyn, NY that dials the fire department automatically, there is a lag between the time the fire begins to ignite and the time the alarm goes out. If someone on the scene has to call 911, even if it is you, by the time the fire is discovered, it will already be well into its timeline.
Generally, fire department personnel have a “wheels rolling” call response time of one to two minutes. That is the length of time it takes to receive the call, get into their gear, jump into their stations on the trucks, start the engine on the fire trucks, and pull out of the firehouse. Once they leave, they are at the mercy of traffic, road configurations, road conditions, and distance. Even when the station is close to your home, it can take a substantial amount of time for them to arrive on the scene. As you can tell from our timeline, if the fire is burning unchecked, there can be extensive property damage or even loss of life before the engines reach you.
The key to minimizing property damage and injury or loss of life is to slow down or extinguish the flames as soon as possible in your home in Brooklyn.

Never-mind issues like traffic, road construction detours, and just simple distance. Consider that when the firehouse is relatively close to your home, it can still take a harrowing amount of time for the FDNY to arrive at your home.

Commercial Fire Sprinkler Inspections In Brooklyn
Properly installed, maintained, inspected, and functioning commercial fire sprinkler systems in Brooklyn from Allstate Sprinkler Corp. in a building that is experiencing a fire is the first response to fire before the fire department ever shows up. Large losses of life and property are practically nonexistent in buildings equipped with a properly operating sprinkler system.
Fire Sprinkler System Repair
Fire Engineering magazine reports that full-scale live-fire tests carried out in several countries during the latter half of the 20th century have shown that automatic fire sprinklers can make significant contributions to the improvement of conditions in fire-involved environments in Brooklyn. This is done by lowering temperatures, diluting fire gases, and improving visibility, substantially increasing the time available to occupants of a burning building to successfully evacuate the premises.
Every day, more commercial properties are being protected by these “mechanical firefighters”. In many cases, the activated commercial sprinkler systems in Brooklyn will control the fire. Yet, without direct water contact, sprinklers may not completely extinguish a fire. For example, in a warehouse, inventory may be stored on shelves that block water from the sprinklers reaching the burning material. Firefighters need to be ready with hand lines to extinguish any remaining fires. If a sprinkler system is having difficulty controlling the fire, hose lines working at strategic locations can supplement the sprinkler system to extinguish any remaining fires.
With operating commercial fire sprinkler systems in Brooklyn, firefighting efforts are facilitated and the risk to firefighters is significantly reduced. The primary tactic in a sprinkler-protected building is to let the system do its job while supporting the system. Firefighting efforts can then be directed toward maintaining the system in a fully-operational status while laying backup lines for additional approaches to the fire.
