Commercial Fire Protection for Property Management Companies in the Southeast
Fire Protection Services in North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia
If you manage one or more residential or commercial properties, you know that fire protection is one of the most important safety services there is. Particularly in large apartment buildings, having a fire sprinkler system and alarm system installed is important not just for adhering to building fire code but also for being able to make large numbers of occupants aware of fires and keep them safe. Unifour Fire & Safety offers a full range of fire protection services and equipment, including fire sprinkler systems, fire hydrants, fire pumps, alarm systems, and more. We’re here for you and your residents 24 hours a day.
Fire Alarm Installation, Inspection, and Testing
When you own or operate a property occupied by other people, it’s important to have a warning system in place that alerts occupants of a fire and facilitates quick evacuation. Unifour Fire & Safety will install a fire alarm system in your office building or apartment complex and return to test and inspect it periodically. Depending upon local fire codes and regulations set by the National Fire Protection Association, you likely need annual inspection to stay within proper compliance.
Fire Sprinkler Systems Installation, Inspection, Testing & Repair
If a fire starts when someone is on duty at your property, the local fire department can be called to help put out the fire and make sure everyone in the building is safe. Functioning fire sprinklers provide 24/7 fire protection and are the best way to decrease the amount of damage to your property and minimize injuries.
Emergency Lighting for Property Management Companies
Fire alarms help alert occupants about a fire on your property, but it can be difficult to evacuate the building if the power goes out and there are no lights to lead the way. Emergency and exit lighting provide backup lighting sources that help guide your occupants out of the building in the event of a power outage. Unifour Fire & Safety can install and inspect emergency lighting systems on residential properties.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Protection for Residential & Commercial Properties
What kind of fire alarm is right for my building?
Fire alarms come in two broad categories. Addressable alarm systems come with a number of detectors that are connected to your central panel. Every device communicates the position of the triggered detector.
Conventional fire alarm systems use circuits and zones to achieve a similar effect, but each detector is connected by its own wire.
Addressable systems are faster and more effective at alerting occupants of fires so they can respond quickly.
Do fire sprinklers cause water damage?
Modern sprinklers are designed to limit water discharge to the area of the fire, so they cause far less damage than firefighters’ hoses.
Accidental discharges can certainly cause water damage to electronic equipment and paperwork, but a custom sprinkler design can minimize damage through the addition of dry pipe systems.
Where should emergency fire lights be installed?
Emergency lighting is designed to illuminate your evacuation path. The National Fire Protection Association requires emergency lighting on all exit routes, including stairways, corridors, and hallways.
With proper emergency lighting, your building’s occupants can easily see the safest exit route.
How long can a fire extinguisher be used?
Most fire extinguishers have an average life span of a decade, provided they’re well-maintained and free of damage. To achieve maximum life span, they need to be inspected every year.
You can support your annual services by regularly checking your units. They should show evidence of an intact tamper seal and locking pin, and the nozzles should show no signs of rust or leakage.
You should recharge your fire extinguisher any time it’s used, even briefly discharged on accident.
How many extinguishers does my building need?
The NFPA 10 requires you to be outfitted for Class A through C fires. Class A extinguishers must be within 75 feet of occupants, fire hazards, and your other extinguishers.
Class 10B units must achieve a minimum distance of 50 feet.
