I’m in the process of trying to make my shop a lot safer.
I’m buying 2 ABC extinguishers, a metal cabinet for flammable liquids etc, and was thinking about installing a smoke alarm inside as well. My concern is that sanding dust might trip the alarm, any thoughts on said concern?
The reason I’m concerned about this is because while on a commercial job on the San Diego military bases a while back, the fire alarms were tripped 2 separate times and the fire dept showed up etc, it was a mess. The alarms were wrapped and everything, but basically the dust from the demo set them off. I was glad not to be part of that specific crew that day…I understand these commercial building alarms may be entirely different than the type of residential alarm I will probably buy, but the thought of this topic brought that day back to mind.
