FireArrest surveyed experts to shine a light on the biggest fire risks
Prominent fire stopping business, FireArrest, recently performed a study with a range of fire professionals to understand what, in their experience, are the most common fire risks.
As we all know the management of fire risks within a property is the single most important factor when it comes to saving lives, protecting properties and the contents within them.
The survey looked at three key areas of fire safety:
- Hidden Risks
When FireArrest asked what kind of building was at most risk of fire, seven out of ten said that the most fire risks were present within private homes.
FireArrest then asked what the biggest fire risks were in terms of materials, 39% said combustible materials, 35% said electrical materials and 23% said vulnerable infrastructure.
Finally, they asked the experts about the most common hidden risks, 31% of the responses agreed that walls and ceilings present the biggest dangers since they aren’t immediately visible. 23% said that entranceways were the biggest hidden fire risk within a property.
