The sign of a successful sports centre is a constant stream of visitors, sports teams and families, using the facilities to the full. However, this rapid turnover of users can pose problems for fire safety provision, since in an emergency, staff may not know exactly how many people are in the complex at any one time.
The electrical machinery at the heart of a sports complex can include swimming pool pumps and filters, power switching rooms and gym equipment. These expensive but vital machines need effective fire protection from CO2 fire extinguishers.
Water additive fire extinguishers are best for the common areas and, for swimming pool areas, the stainless steel fire extinguishers (they look like chrome) will not corrode in the chlorine-affected atmosphere.
