The in-depth and insightful report was created following a meeting of the influential Fire Loss Prevention Forum of India (FLPFI). It outlines how sprinklers, in a warehouse or storage environment, play a vital role in saving lives and protecting properties against the devastating effects of fire.

Srikanth Yajjala of FLPFI said: “The logistics sector, driven by the huge increase in activities such as internet shopping, is growing exponentially across the globe. With this comes the issue of ensuring associated warehouses and product storage centres – and most importantly the staff which work within them – remain protected from fire’s debilitating effects. This White Paper considers the whole issue of warehouse design in terms of fire safety and how sprinklers are key to minimising the cost to life and business when a blaze occurs.”

The FLPFI White Paper review includes representations from companies renowned as global experts in the fields of property insurance, logistics, and warehouse fire safety: Global real estate consultants, Knight Frank; real estate developers, modern logistics parks providers, INDOSPACE, and commercial property insurer, FM Global.

An overview of the logistics and warehousing situation in India, as well as fire safety legislation and codes of practice are among issues covered in the White Paper review. It also considers future innovations relating to storage site design and safety.

Srikanth Yajjala of FLPFI added: “The White Paper review provides some enlightening facts whilst raising some incredibly important questions regarding warehouse fire safety. We hope businesses and the logistics industry as a whole will benefit from the expert insights provided.”
