Five Steps To Fireproofing Your Warehouse

Your New Eng­land ware­house is an invest­ment, not to men­tion a func­tion­al space for employ­ment, work­flow and stor­age. When ware­house fires occur, they can spread quick­ly, becom­ing life threat­en­ing to your staff in a mat­ter of moments. This is why fire­proof­ing your ware­house is an essen­tial step in pro­tect­ing your invest­ment and the peo­ple who work there.

Fire­proof­ing doesn’t ensure that a fire will nev­er break out. Rather, it uses high tech strate­gies and coat­ings to reduce dam­age and for­ti­fy your struc­ture giv­ing employ­ees more time to escape and fire fight­ers more time to quell the blaze.

We Take Safe­ty, Seriously

Here at Kaloutas we take safe­ty seri­ous­ly across the board, going above and beyond the indus­try stan­dard in safe­ty train­ing and best prac­tices. Our com­mer­cial painters are high­ly trained in prop­er­ly installing intu­mes­cent and fire retar­dant pro­tec­tive coat­ings, to pre­vent dam­age and increase safe­ty in your ware­house. With loca­tions in Rhode Island, Mass­a­chu­setts and New Hamp­shire our team is both large and flex­i­ble, ready to meet your needs on even the most com­pli­cat­ed time frame.

Here are 5 steps for effec­tive­ly fire­proof­ing your facil­i­ty.

5 Steps to Thor­ough Fire­proof­ing Your New Eng­land Warehouse

Train­ing and Safe­ty- Ensure that your employ­ees are trained beyond com­pli­ance and under­stand how to work with the high­ly flam­ma­ble items or process­es in your space. Hold reg­u­lar train­ings and review fire extin­guish­er use, loca­tions and evac­u­a­tion plans.

Smart Stor­age- Stack­ing pal­lets too high or allow­ing trash to over­flow increas­es the risk of ware­house fires. Uti­lize smart stor­age and best prac­tices to reduce your risk. Nev­er allow prod­uct over­flow to block safe exit strategies.

Safe­ty Strip­ing- Put ware­house strip­ing to work for you. Using com­mer­cial floor­ing solu­tions, the pro­fes­sion­al painters at Kaloutas can clear­ly mark path­ways and fire extin­guish­er loca­tions, mak­ing for easy access and quick exits if needed.

Invest in Fire Retar­dant and Intu­mes­cent Coatings/​Intumescent Paint- Intu­mes­cent coat­ings are sim­ply high tech, fire retar­dant paints that foam up in the event of a fire, which slows the spread of fire and heat pen­e­tra­tion. They come in a vari­ety of col­ors and fin­ish­es, and look just like nor­mal paint until acti­vat­ed by a fire.

Work with Your Fire Depart­ment- Col­lab­o­rate with your local fire depart­ment, ask them if they see any haz­ards in your facil­i­ty and let them know what chem­i­cals and process­es you’re work­ing with in the event they are called to your site.
