The Greatest Dangers Facing Office Towers

by Boss Steel on August 24, 2018

If you own, manage, operate, or work in an office tower, this post holds special interest for you; because while all buildings hold their own inherent dangers, office towers are in a category of their own.

The good news is that you're unlikely to die in an office fire. Even a quick glance at the statistics are somewhat reassuring. While they demonstrate that office fires do happen, they also show that such instances rarely result in deaths.

[National Fire Protection Association] estimates that U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 3,340 fires in office properties per year. These fires caused an annual average of four civilian deaths, 44 civilian fire injuries, and $112 million in direct property damage (NFPA).

As you can see, while the cost to human life is relatively low (even four deaths are too many), the financial cost is substantial.

Another danger facing office towers is that of daily wear and tear. Although a much less dramatic danger than a fire, incidental damage can prove quite costly--especially if you put off dealing with it.

Experts have noted that while maintenance costs can grow to become your third largest office expense, most maintenance work is neither expected nor budgeted; and even though preventative maintenance is cheaper in the long run, many folks fail to plan ahead, losing out on these potential savings. 

One simple step you can take today is to order sets of corner guards. Once installed, our guards will help keep future maintenance costs low by preventing scrapes, scratches, dents, and other damage to your vulnerable corners and edges. 

With low prices, easy ordering, and simple installation procedures, our guards provide wise and simple solutions to potential future problems.
