Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and Cornwall Council strongly encourages the fitting of fire sprinklers in all types of buildings at the design stage, the fitting of sprinklers can often lead to compensations being given in other areas of fire safety design such as a requirement for fire doors, insurance companies will also give reductions on premiums giving year on year savings which can often pay for the sprinkler installation within several years.
