Retail Overview

There are many fire hazards and risks in a typical retail environment. When you’re consulting with a professional fire protection company to ensure your space is up to code. Electrical equipment, Lighting, sound systems, cash registers, refrigeration, and other aspects of your retail store require electrical wiring. Any malfunctions in these areas could cause a fire.

Flammable products, such as barbecuing supplies and pesticides to gardening chemicals, you probably sell many different flammable products. 

Vandals, can’t control the behaviour of customers who enter your retail store. Whether on purpose or by accident, someone could set your merchandise on fire, such as in the other example listed above.

Typically, we install to storerooms, IT rooms & Café kitchens.

Store Rooms

Cannon Fire can provide inert gas to protect a retailer’s stock/contents in the event of a fire by putting it out and stopping it from spreading further. There are a number of factors to consider, is stored content flammable (paper, fabrics & wood)?

 

Inert Gas

Inert gas systems extinguish a fire by lowering Oxygen levels (which are typically around the 21% mark) within a protected area, but within ‘safe for life support’ limitations.

Synthetic System

These agents are commonly referred to as ‘Clean Agents’ as they leave no residue or oily deposits, they can be removed by ventilation of the affected space and are non-conductive. This makes them highly desirable in IT rooms and precious document vaults.

IT Rooms

Cannon Fire Protection can provide inert gas to environments that need protecting in an environment where covering the assets in a water or other flame suppression liquid is not possible, as it would cause further damage (such as IT room, server rooms).
