Fire Protection Services for Industrial Facilities
The latest report issued by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that 37,000 industrial and manufacturing building fires break out every year in the US. This causes annual losses of 18 civilian deaths, 279 civilian injuries, and $1 billion in property damage. Many of these incidents occur in the Mid-South – is your industrial facility adequately protected?
The leading causes of industrial building fires include:
- Heating equipment (14%)
- Shop tools and industrial equipment (14%)
- Electrical distribution and lighting equipment (11%)
- Cooking equipment (5%)
- Intentional (5%)
It’s crucial to assess the fire risks in your industrial facility and install the proper fire protection systems to mitigate these risks. Remember, installation is just the first step. Every year, fires cause additional damage in industrial buildings where protection systems have fallen into disrepair. Count on State Systems, Inc. to install, inspect, test and maintain your fire protection systems.
Fire Sprinkler Services
There’s no doubt that fire sprinklers save lives and drastically reduce property damage when a fire breaks out. Since they offer 24/7 protection, sprinklers are widely recognized as the single most effective way to fight fires in their early stage. By preventing the growth and spread of a fire, properly operating sprinkler systems can often extinguish the blaze before the fire department arrives.
The expert technicians at State Systems, Inc. can ensure your sprinkler system meets NFPA regulations and local fire codes. We perform code-compliant installations, testing, maintenance, and repairs. We also offer fire sprinkler monitoring services.
Call us or contact us online if you have any questions about fire sprinkler systems.
Fire Suppression Systems for Industrial Buildings
It’s likely your industrial building faces unique fire hazards that don’t always respond well to water. Flammable liquids, combustible chemicals, and other hazards require an industrial fire suppression system.
At State Systems, Inc., we install, inspect, test, and maintain the following industrial fire protection systems:
- Pyro-Chem MONARCH Fire Suppression Systems
- Ansul Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
- Ansul CO2 Fire Suppression Systems
- Kidde CO2 Fire Suppression Systems
Call us or contact us online to discuss your industrial facility’s fire suppression needs.
Fire Extinguisher Services
Using a portable fire extinguisher within the first two minutes of a blaze breaking out is arguably the most cost-effective defense against property damage. In small industrial facility fires, employees can often fully extinguish or at least contain a fire with the proper equipment until the fire department arrives.
This ideal scenario requires two things: First, employees must have the right type of fire extinguishers on hand. Then, employees must feel comfortable operating them.
Our expert technicians can help determine the right type, location, and maintenance schedule for your fire extinguishers. Then, we offer Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) compliant fire extinguisher training to ensure employee confidence when using portable fire extinguishing equipment.
Give us a call to learn more about our fire extinguisher services.
Fire Alarm Systems
While they don’t actively extinguish the flames, fire alarm systems are crucial for reducing lost lives in an emergency. Industrial fire alarms are comprised of many parts, including a central control panel where smoke alarms and heat detectors are connected, plus sirens and horns to alert building occupants if the system triggers an alarm.
State Systems, Inc. installs and services all components of your facility’s fire alarm system. We also provide fire alarm monitoring to automatically alert the fire department when the alarm sounds.
We have years of experience installing fire alarms for industrial settings. Contact us to learn more.
Technology & Security Solutions for Mid-South Industrial Facilities
Emergency Lighting Solutions
Fires and other emergencies can knock out the power. To prevent panic and facilitate an orderly evacuation, emergency lights must remain illuminated. Backup batteries are at the heart of every emergency lighting system, but these can become damaged or corroded if they fall into neglect. This makes proper installation and ongoing maintenance essential to ensure your emergency lighting system kicks on during a power failure.
OSHA has strict regulations regarding commercial emergency exit lights, including required monthly and annual testing. State Systems, Inc. can help your industrial building remain compliant by providing the services you need to avoid fees and penalties.
Give us a call to learn more about our emergency lighting testing services in the Mid-South.
Access Control Systems
When you need to ensure security in sensitive areas of your building, nothing beats the features of an access control system. In short, this system allows or denies access to certain rooms or buildings with the use of access cards or biometric recognition technology.
Differing industrial buildings face unique challenges, but they all share a common responsibility: ensure the safety and well-being of personnel while protecting business assets and information from unscrupulous individuals.
Access control systems offer the following:
- Protection of administrative areas and other sensitive areas
- Visitor management
- Protection of high-value assets
- Emergency response
- Maintenance of records of facility use
- Management of operational costs
Call us or contact us online to learn more about the tremendous security value of access control systems.
Structured Cabling Solutions
Many industrial facility managers throughout the Mid-South realize just how important structured cabling is in a world of modern communication. This solution involves installing a cabling infrastructure that serves as a networking medium for phones and computers to communicate and access the Internet. By planning for the future and installing a quality structured cabling system today, your networking equipment and computer system can perform to its true potential.
For more information about our copper, coaxial, and fiber optic structured cabling systems for industrial facilities, contact us online.
Mass Notification for Industrial Buildings
When a disaster strikes your industrial facility, you can’t waste time delivering vital information to everyone affected by this turn of events. Mass notification systems integrate audio and visual messaging customized to the needs of your facility.
For example, in high-noise industrial settings, visual notifications are likely an essential aspect of your alert system. But this only scratches the surface of this system’s capabilities. You can also use it to send one-way phone calls, texts, emails, and social media alerts to deliver whatever message you need to get across in real time.
Our technology experts can help you set up and maintain your building’s mass notification system to ensure you can always provide up-to-the-minute instructions to your personnel, whether they’re currently at your facility or not.
