Fire Protection Services for Manufacturing Facilities
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), from 2006-2010, an estimated 42,800 fires in or at industrial or manufacturing facilities were reported in the U.S. each year. During that period, there was a reported average annual loss of 22 civilian lives, as well as 300 civilian injuries and $951 million in direct property damage. A portion of these fires took place in the Mid-South, where over 800 manufacturing firms are located.
Common Causes of Manufacturing Facility Fires
The following factors contributed to structure fires in manufacturing plants during the 2006-2010 timespan (ranked in order of occurrences):
- Flammable or combustible liquids or gases, piping or filter
- Dust, fiber and lint (including sawdust or excelsior)
- Unclassified item first ignited
- Electrical wire or cable insulation
- Rubbish, trash or waste
- Structural member or framing
It’s crucial to assess the fire risks of the combustibles in your manufacturing plant, as well as ensure that your fire protection systems will operate as intended in the event of a fire. Every year commercial building fire protection systems fail to extinguish fires due to neglect of inspection, testing and maintenance.
Fire Sprinklers Inspections
Here at State Systems, our expert technicians test, inspect, maintain, monitor and repair fire sprinkler systems in manufacturing facilities throughout the Mid-South. We ensure that your sprinkler systems meet NFPA guidelines as well as local fire safety requirements.
Call us or contact us online if you have any questions about fire sprinkler systems.
Fire Suppression System Installation and Inspection
State Systems’ technicians have years of experience in designing and installing fire suppression solutions tailored for the unique needs of the manufacturing industry. We provide all manner of fire suppression systems including micro-environment, CO2, dry chemical and clean agent.
Call us or contact us online to discuss your fire suppression needs.
Fire Extinguishers Installation and Inspection
Using a portable fire extinguisher during the first two minutes of a fire is arguably the most cost-effective defense against property damage from a fire. In the instance of small plant fires, employees can extinguish or at least contain a fire by using the proper equipment until the fire department arrives. Our expert technicians will assess your fire risks, determine the right type of fire extinguisher for your needs and install them in the proper locations.
Fire Extinguisher Training
We also provide hands-on fire extinguisher training that complies with Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) standards. Fire extinguisher training improves employee confidence and increases the effectiveness of the fire extinguishers.
Give us a call at 901-531-6550 to learn more about the fire extinguishers we can install in your manufacturing plant or facility as well as the training services we provide.
Fire Alarm Systems
Fire alarms are the first response system for alerting your employees of a fire or emergency. Don’t put your employees, property or inventory at risk by being without a well-maintained fire alarm system. We install, monitor, inspect and repair fire alarm systems for manufacturing facilities throughout the Mid-South.
Emergency & Exit Lighting Solutions
Emergency and exit lighting is an important part of any evacuation plan and provides a means for finding a path of egress when an emergency situation occurs. OSHA and the NFPA have outlined strict requirements that commercial facilities, including manufacturing plants, must meet with respect to their emergency and exit lighting—contact State Systems to learn more.
The NFPA also requires both monthly and annual testing for emergency and exit lighting, and we can help you with both. Just give us a call to learn more about our testing services offered throughout the Mid-South.
Technology & Security Solutions for Mid-South Manufacturing Plants
Video Surveillance Systems Installation and Maintenance
We design, install and maintain all types of video surveillance systems. Our experts can look at exactly what you need and determine the security monitoring products that are best suited to your Mid-South company.
Since we are not tied to any particular security system brands, we have a wide variety of products to work with–with great experience installing CCTV, access control and business surveillance camera systems.
Access Control System Services
More than ever before, manufacturing plants must be safe and equipped with advanced security features to protect both your employees and assets. At State Systems, we specialize in the installation of full access control systems. These systems provide manufacturing facilities an important layer of security by allowing or denying a person’s admittance to an area or facility through the use of access cards or biometric recognition technology.
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
Give us a call at 901-531-6550 or contact us online to learn more about the tremendous value of access control systems in increasing the security of your plant.
Mass Notification Systems
Mass notification systems integrate audio and visual messaging to provide a comprehensive notification system that is customized to the needs of your facility. For example, in high-noise manufacturing settings, visual notifications can be essential to alerting employees of an emergency situation. Mass notification systems are also unique in their ability to provide up-to-the-minute evacuation or containment instructions that reflect the changing conditions of the emergency.
