About Office Buildings
Fires within office buildings can be the unintentional results of careless acts. For example, individuals may overload the same extension cord, carelessly discarding cigarette butts into trashcans, or accidentally leaving heat-producing appliances on flammable items. In some cases, it may not be the fault of an employee in the building. Central heating units may malfunction, ignite combustibles near the heating pipes, and cause a HVAC fire.
One needs to have the right fire protection and suppression system in place to avoid thousands of dollars in fire damage or even loss of lives.
Office Buildings that Require Fire Protection Services
There are three major classes of office buildings in the United States. The classes are typically used by commercial real estate brokers and agents for categorization purposes.
- Class A Office Buildings: These office buildings feature the latest technological systems, HVAC units, amenities, and top-of-the-line fixtures. They are often located in high-visibility locations such as a city’s central business district.
- Class B Office Buildings: These office buildings are decent in nature. Although they lack architectural details and fixtures that are found in Class A buildings, Class B office buildings still houses fully functional facilities. These buildings are often fewer than four stories tall and located on the edge of large financial districts or suburbs.
- Class C Office Buildings: Class C refers to office buildings that are typically more than two decades old.
