Commercial Smoke Detectors
No one wants to show up to work one morning and find their building in flames. Fire is a nightmare scenario that every business owner worries about at least once or twice. There are a number of things that you can do to mitigate the risk of fire in your commercial building. Unfortunately, there’s nothing that you can do to completely eliminate fire risk. What you can do, however, is make sure that your employees are safe.
Installing commercial smoke detectors in your building ensures that your employees are warned as soon as a fire breaks out. This gives them time to exit the building safely, allowing the fire department to focus on putting out the fire. Commercial smoke detectors can also be integrated with automatic sprinkler systems to provide a quick response to any fire. It is recommended that you install one smoke detector in every main room of your commercial property. This makes it easier for the system to quickly detect a fire, and give you and your employees more time to evacuate. Give us a call today to schedule commercial smoke detector services in your home.

Smoke Detector Services
It’s all well and good to have smoke detectors installed in your commercial building. If you don’t have your smoke detectors inspected on a regular basis, however, you may find that they fail you right when you need them the most. It is important that you have every smoke detector in your building inspected at least once a year by a qualified professional. Ryan Gath Electric also services the smoke detectors that we install. We’ll make sure that your commercial smoke detectors are working properly, and will repair or replace any that aren’t. Remember: a smoke detector that doesn’t work is of no use to you. Be sure to get your smoke detectors serviced on a regular basis.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide detectors are similar to smoke detectors, but use a different detection method to identify danger. Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas produced by natural gas burning appliances like furnaces and boilers. This gas is invisible to human senses, which makes it even more dangerous. The only way to detect it is to install carbon monoxide detectors throughout your building. If your commercial building uses a natural gas burning heating system, it is highly recommended that you install carbon monoxide detectors in every major room of the building. As carbon monoxide is also a natural result of combustion, carbon monoxide detectors can serve as supplementary systems to your main smoke detectors.
A lot of people view smoke detectors as important, but they still don’t bother to have them checked or change their batteries. A smoke detector that isn’t working is useless, and creates a dangerous hole in your defenses against fire. For your own safety, as well as that of your business and employees, you should make every effort to keep your smoke detectors in prime operating condition.
