An Overview of Hochiki's Water Leak Detection System.
Welcome to Hochiki's Water Leak Detection System, LEAKalarm. For further information on individual products, technical data and pricing, please visit our store.
Despite the understandably significant resources spent on mitigating loss through fire, there is a much greater threat to business continuity, that of disruption to business and asset damage through water leaks.
Statistics show that the most likely cause of claims in blocks of flats, hotels, retail premises and commercial buildings is water damage. It is now a commonly accepted fact by UK insurers that water leakage is now the costliest and most common claim made by commercial customers with a total loss in the UK alone approaching £800 million.
The financial market is particularly sensitive to these potential losses with Data Centre outages costing such businesses an average of £12,000 per minute, hourly losses on the Stock Exchange of around £4.5 million and Credit Card Clearance around £1.8 million.
The cost to businesses due to water leakage can therefore be significant and it is not just the obvious cost of physical damage to IT and other electronic equipment, plant, fixtures & fittings, stock and the fabric of the building. Like fire damage, even a seemingly minor water leak can result in temporary relocation, resultant increased employment costs, significant business interruption & loss of profits.
